December 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ Honor, a leading online smartphone brand geared towards digital natives, today announced the USA availability of the next generation in its Honor X smartphone series, the Honor 7X.
Honor has just released its successor to the Honor 6X that was announced earlier this year at CES. At the time, Honor didn't specify United States launch details, but this morning at a press event, Honor provided all the nitty gritty, confirming that the Honor 7X is available today, priced at $199.
There is plenty to say about the Honor 7Xs hardware considering how much Honors #X series has evolved over the past two iterations.
The phone has a fingerprint sensor on the back. So, what do you think about the Honor 7x?
However, if you are looking for a camera-centric smartphone with a taller display and a premium metal build, then Honor 7x is at your service. The device features a 5.99-inch FullView full HD+ display with an 18:9 display aspect ratio.
As you might've heard already, the View 10 uses a 5.99-inch LCD screen that takes up nearly all of the room on the phone's face. Given than the Huawei Mate 9 launched earlier this year in the U.S. for $499.99 and the View 10 is priced at €499 in Europe, I imagine we will see the View 10 at a similar price point. Also, you won't find Huawei's cheeky TrueDepth Camera clone here; the View 10 will only come with a more conventional face unlock feature, but that won't arrive until a future OTA update. The screen has Corning Gorilla glass protection.More news: Jimmy Garoppolo throws for 293 yards in first 49ers' start
The Honor View 10's camera setup introduces a few wildcards into the mix.
The Honor View10 boasts a 3750mAh battery, but is just 6.97mm thick - thinner than the Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone X, despite a larger capacity. There is a micro USB port as well, which some may be happy about, but others will have preferred a USB-C port instead.
Honor is a leading smartphone e-brand under the Huawei Group.
As for the Honor V10, it will go on sale in India on 8 January. The second sensor is used for bokeh-effects and helps in low-light situations. The phone comes in 4 GB RAM and 32GB / 64GB internal storage. Do keep in mind that there is one real compromise: no NFC so no mobile payments or Android Beam sharing. Here's taking a look how the three smartphones fare against each other.
The 7Xs construction is fantastic for this price-range. On the software front, the device runs Huawei's EMUI 5.1 (based on Android Nougat), and the company claims that the 7X will soon get the Oreo-based EMUI 8. In case of the Honor 7X, it includes a combination of 16-megapixel and 2-megapixel sensors.
So after less than an hour with the Honor View 10, first impressions are of a phone that's competitive in both specs and price, and which could well outperform the OnePlus 5T in battery life and photo quality. In typical Honor fashion, though, the View 10's design is pretty bland.
