Huawei's budget smartphone now has a tall display and narrow bezels

New, 11 comments

Huawei announced its next-generation budget phone today: the Honor 7X. The biggest change over last year's device, the Honor 6X, has a new aspect ratio and screen dimensions. This is the company's first device with an 18:9 display. You'll notice it still has bezels, although they're minimized, and the screen size is slightly longer, at 5.93 inches. The 6X had a 5.5-inch screen.

Here are the rest of the specs:

  • Kirin 659 chipset
  • 4GB of RAM
  • Up to 128GB of expandable storage
  • 3340mAh battery
  • Android Nougat with a custom skin
  • Micro USB
  • Dual 16-megapixel and 2-megapixel rear-facing camera system for taking portraits; 8-megapixel front-facing camera

It'll go on sale in China on October 17th for between 1,300 yuan, or $200, and 2,000 yuan, or $300. It comes in three colors: blue, gold, and black. The 6X debuted in China first, too, so I wouldn't be surprised if it eventually brought the device to the US.
