Huawei unveils Honor 7 with fingerprint scanner
It’s been just about a year now since Huawei introduced the Honor 6, a model that combined flagship-level specs with a budget price tag that still managed to come in under $400. And we’re six months removed from the launch of the Honor 6 Plus, giving us neat hardware like that dual-rear-camera arrangement. That puts us right on schedule for the next Honor phone to debut, and today Huawei saw to just that, announcing the metal-clad Honor 7.
With a 1080p 5.2-inch display, the Honor 7 plus splits the difference in screen size between the Honor 6 and 6 Plus while not feeling compelled to push forward into quad HD territory. The phone’s powered by a Kirin 935 SoC, offers either 16GB or 64GB of internal storage (with microSD expansion available), and has 3GB of RAM. The main camera’s a sapphire-protected f/2.0 component with 20MP sensor, and the front-facer weighs in at 8MP. Juice comes from a big 3100mAh battery, and for security there’s a fingerprint scanner living around back.
Sales of the Honor 7 get started in China early next month, where the phone will sell for the equivalent of as little as $320. That’s for the base 16GB edition; adding dual-SIM support bumps that up to $355, while the top-shelf 64GB model will fetch closer to $400.
