Huawei just introduced Honor 7X, meaning its sub-brand has officially entered the world of 18:9 screens (were not counting this one, which is sold under four different names).
The LCD measures 5.93 - about as wide as the 5.5 screen of the Honor 6X, but taller. It has 1,080 x 2,160px resolution (407ppi) and it sits below a 2.5D glass. The fingerprint reader on the 6X was already on the back, so no change here.
The camera has been updated, however. Were now looking at a 16MP main camera with a 2MP secondary one along with an 8MP camera on the front.
The Honor 7X is powered by a Kirin 659 chipset eight Cortex-A53 cores grouped in two clusters along with Mali-T830 MP2 graphics. The RAM is fixed at 4GB, but the storage ranges from 32GB to 128GB and theres room for a microSD card on the hybrid dual SIM slot.
The phone will launch with Android 7.0 Nougat + EMUI 5.1. It has a 3,340mAh battery and a microUSB port (sigh). The phones metal body measures 7.6mm thick and weighs 165g.
