Huawei Honor 7 Plus likely coming soon with 5.5-inch 1,080p screen
Just because Huawei should soon get the opportunity of a lifetime to achieve Western mainstream smartphone fame with a high-profile, high-end albeit controversially designed Nexus 6 (2015), that doesn’t mean the Chinese device manufacturer has halted evolution of its non-Google products.
Quite on the contrary, as the pressure-sensitive Mate S recently broke cover to try to rain on Apple’s parade, alongside a respectable mid-ranger by the name of G8. And let’s not forget the Honor 7, which spread its wings to the old continent a few weeks back, and rumor has it will soon spawn a sequel.
More like spin-off, if reputable Twitter tipster @OnLeaks is correct in his assumptions the Honor 7 Plus shall add 0.3 inches to the Honor 7’s display size while retaining the Full HD, aka 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, resolution.
The 5.5-inch Huawei Honor 7 Plus will apparently measure 151.4 x 76.3 mm, which is unsurprisingly north of the standard Honor 7’s dimensions, but the waist may actually get slimmed down, from 8.5 to 7.9 mm.
Based on those numbers, as well as the handheld family’s general design language, a short concept video was created to showcase the possible external appearance of the metallic upper mid-end Android. It’s safe to expect a clean, industrial-looking, robust slab with rounded corners, a snazzy rear camera and rectangular fingerprint scanner located right underneath the main snapper.
All specifications besides screen diagonal and pixel count remain under wraps, though given the “Plus” suffix, upgrades should be marginal over the octa-core Kirin 935 SoC, 3GB RAM, 20 and 8MP cams, and 3,100 mAh battery of the original Honor 7.
