We pretty much like the Huawei smartphones under Honor branding. They are inexpensive, powerful and reliable. Last year’s Honor 6 was a powerful device at a mere price tag of Rs.35,000, and now Huawei has announced the latest iteration to its growing Honor portfolio, the Huawei Honor 7 in China.
Honor 7 come with a 5.2-inch 1080p display and is powered by a 64-bit Kirin 935 chipset that has 4 Cortex-A53 Cores running at 2.2 GHz cores and 4 Cortex-A53 Cores running at 1.5 GHz. The phone has 3GB of RAM and 16 or 64GB of inbuilt storage. The storage can be expanded via microSD card slot upto 128GB.
Recently announced Honor 6 Plus had a great camera, and the Honor 7 try to build on that with a 20MP Sony IMX230 primary camera that now has Phase Detection Auto Focus, with an F2.0 aperture, 6-lens module and sapphire glass for added protection. The front-facing selfie shooter isn’t bad either, boasting a 8MP.
