Huawei is all set to launch the successor of Honor 6X/GR5 2017. The company will unveil its latest midrange phone on October 11 as the latest teaser suggests. The Honor 6x was one of the most successful midrange phones and Huawei wants to continue that trend with the upcoming release.

Huawei Honor 7X Rumored Specs:

As per the leaked info, the Honor 7x is going to feature the infinity display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. With bezel-less like the design, the phone is going to be a little bit bigger at 6-inches. It is going to be powered by the Huawei’s in-house Kirin 659 chipset which is an upgrade from Kirin 650 used on the Honor 6x. The Kirin 659 SoC has an octa-core processor (4x A53 at 2.36GHz + 4x A53 at 1.7GHz) with MaliT830-MP2. It is equivalent to Snapdragon 625 (Xiaomi MiA1) and Exynos 7870 (Samsung J7 Pro) in terms of performance.

Huawei is lately known for its incredible dual cameras on its high-end phones like Mate 9 and P10 Plus. While the dual cameras on its high-end phones are made in partnership with Leica (flagship camera maker), the dual cameras on its cheaper models have not exactly been awe-inspiring. The Honor 7X is also rumored to feature a dual camera (12MP+2MP). With the secondary 2MP camera, the camera can produce bokeh when taking portrait images.

Other leaked specifications of the Honor 7X features an 8MP selfie unit, 3240mAh battery with a 5V/2A charger, Dual nano-SIM, 4GB RAM, 64GB ROM with microSD card slot, and a 4G LTE connectivity.

As for the pricing, the Honor 7X might cost around $315 (NRs. 32,000 approximately). At this price, the phone goes head to head with the Xiaomi Mi A1 and Samsung J7 Pro.

The Honor 7X should launch in Nepal before the end of December and should cost slightly higher than the international pricing. However, we expect Huawei to provide exciting freebies and free data packs on the purchase of the phone.
