With the IFA trade show just one week away, you probably wouldn’t expect any big-time smartphone manufacturers to hold device launches outside Germany. Then again, the Huawei Honor 7 isn’t exactly news, as it was formally unveiled in late June, and made available on Chinese shores shortly thereafter.
At last, the metal-clad 5.2-inch Android has (silently) arrived in Europe, where it’s sold via an “officially licensed Huawei & Honor online store” starting at £210 or €300.
That’s £210 (roughly $325) in the UK if you use the coupon code “H7BRAVE40UK” before checkout, and €300 ($340) respectively in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and Switzerland after a €50 instant discount with voucher “H7BRAVE50EU.”
Sounds like a good enough deal? You’ll want to hurry if it does, because the promo codes expire on August 31. Actual shipments will only begin sometime in September, and alas, you have to pick between gray and silver editions endowed with 16GB internal storage space. The 64GB configuration isn’t up for grabs yet, and neither are the gold-coated models.
Nonetheless, the European Huawei Honor 7 looks fairly enticing on paper, what with its Full HD IPS LCD screen, octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 935 SoC, 3GB RAM, 20MP dual-LED main photographic unit, 8MP selfie camera, rear-fitted fingerprint sensor, pre-installed Android 5.0 Lollipop software, and 3,100 mAh battery. It’s quite the affordable powerhouse, isn’t it? And it’s stylish too, combining metallic build materials and a “ceramic blasted finish.”
