Huawei’s latest phone has a mid-range price tag, but some surprisingly premium specs. Prices start at about 1999 yuan in China, which is about $320 US, but the phone has a reasonably fast processor, a high-resolution display, and front and rear cameras with high megapixel counts.
The Huawei Honor 7 has a metal case, a 5.2 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, 3GB of RAM, and a Kirin 930 octa-core processor (with Mali-T628 graphics and four ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2.2 GHz and four more at 1.5 GHz).
The phone also has has a fingerprint sensor and an 8MP camera on the front of the phone as well as a Sony IMX230 20.7MP camera on the back.
Other features include a microSDXC card slot, a 3,100 mAh battery with fast-charging capabilities, dual-band 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, and 4G LTE. The only catch? When the Honor 7 goes on sale July 7th it’ll only be available in China and it’ll only support Chinese wireless networks.
Huawei will sell a model with 16GB of storage for about $320. A model with 64GB will cost about $400.
Even if this particular phone doesn’t make it to the United States, Huawei is a company worth keeping an eye on: word on the street is that Google may be working with Huawei to build one of the next Nexus phones.
