The Honor 7X is officially unveiled

Honor’s latest handset, the 7X, has been officially unveiled today. And with a very impressive spec sheet and a mid-range price point, it promises to cater to the growing smartphone market who want high-end features without the hefty price tag.

In keeping with the biggest smartphone trend of 2017, the Honor 7X has an 18:9 screen-to-body ratio. Meaning that you get a much bigger screen without making the handset itself any bigger. So it’s perfect for watching videos and playing games.

But the 7X isn’t just lovely to look at. It also comes with a dual-lens 16-megapixel camera with an impressive Portrait Mode and a larger aperture for improved low-light photography. It focuses faster than earlier Honor phones too.

Around the front you’ll find an sharp 8-megapixel selfie camera that comes with a Portrait Mode, as well as lots of Instagram-tastic filters to help you break the internet.

For users always running out of memory, the Honor 7X has 64GB on board, which can be expanded up to 256GB with a MicroSD card. And it’s got 6GB of RAM to keep things running quickly and smoothly.

All this is kept powered by a big 3,340mAh battery that promises up to 12 hours of video playback. So should easily get through a day of heavy use on a single charge.

Although we don’t know exactly how much it’ll cost yet, Honor has said that the 7X will sit in the mid-tier price range. Which, given the premium features, will definitely make the handset a real bargain.

We can expect to see the 7X available SIM-free from 5th December at Argos, Amazon and Very, as well as Honor’s own website.
