Another highlight of the device is its dual camera setup at the back. The speaker grilles are also seen at the bottom edge of the handset along with a microUSB charging port sitting in the middle. Successor to the last year's launched Honor 6X, the smartphone is priced at 1299 yuan for 32GB version, 1699 yuan for 64GB variant and 1999 yuan for 128GB version.
The fingerprint scanner is rear-mounted and that's not because Honor is trying to keep it in the same spot as that of the 6X but because there is no space in front for it thanks to the 5.93-inch 18:9 display.
The Honor 7X will go on sale in China on October 17 and will start from CNY 1,300 ($200/170) for the 32GB version. Furthermore, it now comes with a new 18:9 display, that features bare minimal bezels.
In terms of core hardware, the Honor 7X is powered by a 2.36GHz octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 659 processor - which is a custom chip built by Huawei - coupled with 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage. This year's Honor 6X offered dual cameras for under $200 Dollars, and a new teaser from the company is promoting an upcoming handset with a staple feature from 2017 - a near bezel-less display. All of these variants, according to the listing, support expandable storage via microSD card (up to 256GB) in a hybrid dual-SIM configuration. The secondary sensor on this device is used for calculating the depth in the image for offering better Bokeh effect. Too bad Android 7.0 Nougat runs the software show, though maybe there's enough time for Honor to move up to 8.0 Oreo before the extra-affordable mid-ranger reaches the US.
The device is also IP67 certified, making it water and dust resistant. Besides, the smartphone offers Hybrid Dual SIM, 4G with VoLTE, WiFi (802.11 b/g/n), Bluetooth 4.1 and Global Positioning System. The smartphone also support Huawei's SuperCharge fast charging technology using the 9V/2A (18W) power adapter. Despite a massive 5.93 inches of screen real estate, the Honor 7X should fit nicely in your hand, measuring 156.5 x 75.3 x 7.6 mm, and weighing 165 grams.
