Gadget freaks are in for a treat as Chinese phone major Huawei's much-anticipated Honor 7X will go on sale in India from December 7. The phone shall be exclusively available via Amazon from 12 PM on Dec 7.
The 7X, which is the heir apparent to the popular Honor 6X, is set to make its official launch in the Indian markets at Honor's London event on December 5.
The event, which will also witness the global launch of the AI centric Honor V10, will be live streamed in India via Honor India's Facebook page at 8 PM IST.
Amazon is doling out lucrative offers to those customers who have pre-registered for the smartphone. They are in with a chance to win over 1,000 prizes including paid trips, smartphones and power banks. Amazon will announce the winners of these prizes on January 8.
So here are some of the major features of the Honor 7X phone -
The Honor 7X is powered by Huawei's own Kirin 659 processor paired with 4GB of RAM and a 3,340mAh battery. The phone shall come in two variants with a plethora of storage space, either 32,64 or 128GB storage which can be expanded via a microSD card.
The phone shall run on the Android 7.0 Nougat platform with Huawei's custom EMUI 5.1 skin on top. The cutting-edge feature of the metal clad Honor 7X is the fact that it has minimal bezels up front.
On the display front, it has an edge-to-edge 5.9-inch FullHD+ display with a tall 18:9 aspect ratio. The Honor 7X sports a dual camera setup at the rear - a primary 16MP sensor paired with a secondary 2MP sensor for the capture of depth data. On the front, there is a single 8MP sensor for selfies.
According to Honor's Global President, the Honor 7X is set to launch in India at an "unbeatable price'". The smartphone was recently launched in China in three variants - one with 32GB of internal storage for CNY 1,299 (roughly Rs 12,900), one with 64GB of internal storage for CNY 1,699 (roughly Rs 16,800) and one with 128GB of internal storage for CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs 19,800).
