Honor 7X Review: Bezel-less smartphone on a budget


It is essentially a re-branded version of the Honor V10, which was launched on November 28 in China.

The V10 comes stocked with the latest Huawei-made internal components, including the Kirin 970 chipset, which brings the Mali G72 GPU into the fold.

We don’t yet have pricing, but Honor announced that the phone will launch for the USA in January, 2018.

You’ll be able to pre-order the Honor 7X in blue or black beginning today for $199, and pre-orders end on December 14. This device will be available in Europe (United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Poland, Ukraine and Turkey), Russia, United States, Middle East (United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Iran), India and Malaysia.

While the Honor View 10 joins the growing list of new phones launching with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, the Honor 7x has to settle for Android 7.1 Nougat.

That means you’ll get the Mate 10 Pro’s edge-to-edge 5.99-inch display, with a 18:9 aspect ratio and FullHD resolution. The device is priced at £449.99 and will hit stores from January 8. The device continues the trend of 18:9 displays with minimal bezels.

Optics wise, the Honor 7X features dual rear camera setup.

Honor has unveiled two new high-end smartphones as it makes its latest push to grab a hold in the European market. There are three variants to choose from – 4GB RAM with 64GB internal memory and 6GB RAM plus 64/128GB storage.

Honor is a leading smartphone e-brand under the Huawei Group. It has 4 x 2.4 GHz A73+ 4 x 1.8 GHz A53 10nm processor + i7 co-processor.

A microSD card of up to 256 GB can be used to increase data storage.

The smartphone comes in two variants- a 3GB RAM/32GB storage model and a 4GB RAM/64GB storage model.

Connectivity options on the Honor View 10 include 4G VoLTE, dual-band (2.4GHz + 5GHz) Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v4.2, Infrared, GPS/ A-GPS, NFC, USB Type-C (2.0), and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The View10 features a fingerprint sensor integrated into the home button in the front, but also offers a face unlock feature. The device is backed by a 3,750mAh non-removable battery and supports 5V/4.5A (22.5W) Honor SuperCharge fast charging technology.
