With smartphone prices breaking the thousand dollar price point, it is much to consumers relief that there are still affordable options without sacrificing on specifications. The DOOGEE Mix we saw last month was one brilliant example and now, you have yet another option: The Honor 7X Phone. For the uninitiated, Honor is a sub brand of China telecommunication giant, Huawei, and so, they are not just anybody. They are somebody. Honor 7X is the first smartphone from Honor to boasts Honor FullView Display, a 5.93-inch FHD+ display with 2,160 x 1,080 resolution in 18:9 aspect ratio packed inside a compact body of 156.5 x 75.3 x 7.6 mm (6.16 x 2.96 x 0.30 inches). So, yeah, it is near bezel-less which, until today, is still quite a sight to behold.
Under the hood, it is driven by Huawei’s very own intelligent octacore (4 x 2.36 GHz + 4 x 1.5 GHz) Kirin 659 chipset that claims to have “game-friendly processing capabilities.” The processor is backed by 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB onboard storage, expandable up to 256 GB via, you guessed it, microSD card. Other worthy mentions include a dual camera setup comprising of 16 MP + 2 MP cameras, a 8 MP front-facing camera, a 3,340 mAh battery, 4G-LTE radios, dual SIM support, plus the usual suspects of connectivity and sensors. No wireless ac, though – just in case you are wondering, and it is still the good’ol Bluetooth 4.1 LE. But hey, it is a budget phone, is it not? And therefore, the specs are considered “pretty decent.” Seriously, one really can’t ask for more when it is only asking for $199.
Pre-orders for the Honor 7X kick started on December 5 and will continue till December 14, 6PM PST. And you will want to pre-order it because you will be getting priority shipping and a free phone case. Interestingly, order numbers 7, 77, 177, 277, and all other 77 incremental purchases made up to the pre-order deadline “will receive a full refund of the purchase price.” In other words, you will be getting it for free. Whoops! In addition, during this period, you will be entered into a chance to win goodies like Nintendo Switch, Honor 7X, 17 percent coupon code for Honor 7X purchase on Honor US online store, Honor Band 3, or $100 Lords Mobile gaming voucher. The catch? You will have reshape Honor’s contest post found on Honor USA Facebook page.
