Huawei and Honor continue their particular separation of powers. Separate companies but unified market shares, and a catalog that turns out to be that of two twin brothers who do not twins. As they vary the external aspect and also the prices. Huawei a little more expensive, Honor a little cheaper, in search of the younger and more dynamic public.
As a result of this duality of products was born the last Honor 7X, a smartphone that for all intents and purposes is almost a mirror of the Huawei Mate 10 Lite and apparently had not purchased the tickets to travel to Europe. Until now, we have even known its indicative price. If confirmed, we would be in front of one of the cheapest screenless telephones in the international market.
This is the Honor 7X
As a good mirror of the Huawei Mate 10 Lite, the Honor 7X debuted a month ago with a screen with hardly any side edges, and with the upper and lower frames quite reduced. A phone of 5.93 inches with FullHD + resolution 2,160 x 1,080 pixels, and aspect 18: 9. Of course, 2.5D glass to offer relief at the edges and make it more attractive.
The heart is a "made in Huawei", an eight-core Kirin 659 at 2.36GHz with Mali-T830MP2 GPU, perhaps its point weak. In the memories, 4GB of RAM and three internal storage options: 32, 64 and 128GB . To the taste of the consumer although expandable thanks to a slot for microSD cards. A pretty classic configuration in the middle ranges of the market.
With IP67 water and dust resistance, the second most interesting feature of this Honor 7X behind the screen is probably its set of double cameras. 16 megapixels plus another 2 to play with the blur leaving 8 megapixels for the front. At the level of photographic software, the 7X has everything from beauty mode to portrait mode. All embedded in EMUI 5.1, the layer destined to cover Android 7.0 Nougat.
We closed the characteristics of this Honor 7X with a battery of 3,340 mAh that has fast charge through a 9-volt charger and 2 amps included in the box. A good configuration that, as we said, it seemed that it would not reach Europe. But Roland Quandt, an acquaintance leaker of the mobile market has taken charge of sliding prices.
The Honor 7X in Europe
Honor 7X is a go for Europe soon ™. Priced btw 300-330 Euro it seems. Black and Blue variants showing up at first retailers.Take a look of this :

If the information provided by Quandt is fulfilled, the Honor 7X must set foot on the old continent and must do so both in black and blue. In principle, Quandt gives the prices for the most economical version of the phone, which has 32GB of internal storage. The phone should reach around 300 or 330 euros which would place it as one of the most economical full-screen phones.
We are waiting for this to be confirmed or denied in the next few weeks, but this Honor 7X would be neither the first nor the last to cross the border of China to reach other markets. Maybe he does not do it as Honor 7X and he finally gets renamed, or maybe he leaves his country without a single modification. It only remains to wait for official information from the manufacturer.
