Chinese telecom giant Huawei's sub-brand Honor is all set to globally launch View 10 smartphone on January 8 next year including in India for 499 euros, the company's Global President George Zhao revealed here on Tuesday.
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 comes with a 5.99-inch full HD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) FullView display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The storage facility comes with 2 variants that include 32 GB and 64GB.
In India, Honor has launched two variants of the Honor 7X- one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, and the other one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Shaping up to be another slam dunk by Honor, the V10 supports two SIM cards with LTE connectivity at once (on GSM carriers like AT&T or T-Mobile), plus one of those slots can house a microSD card instead, should you wish to expand on the already generous 128 GB storage, neat. The camera comes with features such as Phase detection autofocus, f/1.8 aperture and dual LED flash. The 7X comes with a 8MP sensor at the front for selfies. The smartphone will be available on Amazon.in and Honor online store from 7th December. It will also be available in France, Germany, India, Italy, the US, Spain and Russian Federation at this time. It will be available in Black and Blue colors only (no words on Red and Gold variants yet). For the front camera, there is a 13MP sensor.
Launched in India in 2014, Honor started manufacturing in the country from 2016 in partnership with the leading global electronics manufacturer Flex Telecom at a facility in Chennai.
Android Gains Safe Browsing Features To Out Apps Collecting Data Without Permission
The company has updated its Unwanted Software Policy page and the guidance page on how app developers should handle user data. All that users will see is a warning, and one that doesn't quite stop them from using the app in the first place.
We have received the review unit of the Honor 7X and will be posting our first impressions soon.
Honor also announced its Structured Light and Sync Play technologies which enhance facial recognition and music playback respectively. This is something that was previously on the Huawei phones that have Leica-branded cameras, so this is a good feature to bring to the Honor 7X. The phone also can be charged up to 50 percent in 30 minutes. The phone draws power from a non-removable 3340 mAh battery.
In addition, the bezel-less screen and dual-lens (16MP + 2MP) rear camera with large aperture and fast focusing means DSLR-level photo quality and shooting experience is at selfie lovers' fingertips. The phone will run on Android 7.0 Nougat along with Huawei's EMUI 5.1. There is NFC, Bluetooth 4.2, 3.5mm audio jack and a USB-C port.
After many years of complaints about Huawei's smartphone cameras, the company has really turned around their cameras on all of their smartphones, even mid-range offerings like the Honor 7X.
