Honor 7X now available for purchase in the United States

Honor has just pulled a new device from its hat and announced the Honor 7X. It's the successor to the attractively priced Honor 6X, and it's being released shortly. Here's what distinguishes it from the previous generation. After the Honor officially presented the Honor 7X alongside the View 10 at their London event, the phone is now officially available to buy in the US, UK, and Europe.

Honor 7X price and availability

As of December 5th, the Chinese company's new smartphones have completed their journey to the west, and the Honor 7X, being the more 'junior' device aimed at a younger audience at a more affordable price, offers a pretty good deal for its features.

As of the time of writing Honor is throwing in some extra goodies with the devices to celebrate the release. Pricing for the US is $199.99 from Honor's official store in black and blue and Honor is currently feeling generous enough to throw in an Honor 7X PC Case free with the purchase.

In the UK, the Honor 7X costs £269 and currently comes with an Honor Band 3 fitness tracker.

Honor 7X design and build

In terms of design, the Honor 7X isn't packing any huge surprises, and the lines draw inspiration from the other devices of Honor itself and Honor's sister brand, Huawei. It has a metallic unibody with measurements of 156.5 x 75.3 x 7.6 mm, and it weighs 165 grams. The Honor 7X will be available in two colors: black and the same matte blue we've already seen on the Huawei Mate 10 Lite. The smartphone has a 5.93-inch FullView display with a 2,160 x 1,080 resolution and 407 ppi. Looking at it from the front, you'll be reminded of the Huawei Mate 10 Lite, with the only differences being the logo below and the presence of a single selfie camera.

On the rear, there's a dual camera with 16 and 2 MP, which is an upgrade compared to the Honor 6X's 12 and 2 MP. The two lenses are located on the top left of the back of the device, while the fingerprint scanner sits in the middle. The front selfie shooter has 8 MP.

The Honor 7X is dual SIM compatible, or you can pack a single SIM and microSD card together to augment the 64 GB of internal storage, up to 256 GB. The Honor 7X comes with 4 GB of RAM, like many of the high-end devices on the market. Powering the performance of the smartphone is the Kirin 659 octacore processor, with four cores clocked at 2.36 GHz and four cores clocked at 1.7 GHz. The device ships with Android 7.0 Nougat wrapped up in EMUI 5.1. Keeping the lights on is the 3,340 mAh battery. Even on this point, the configuration is the same as the Mate 10 Lite.

The similarities with the Mate 10 Lite are impossible to ignore, whether you're judging based on the looks or the specs sheet. Can the Honor 7X compete with the Mate 10 Lite, even though it doesn't have a dual front camera? We'll have to wait and see.

What do you think of the announcement? Are you excited about the Honor 7X or yawning?

    No one deserves to be cheated on, especially when your full loyalty lies with the betrayer of your trust. Initially, I thought I was just feeling insecure when my husband would just be on his phone at odd hours, until I decided to take a chance to know, knowing is better than self doubts and it was exactly what happened when I employed the services of this particular group I came across by chance to help check his phone . Now I know when he’s telling the truth and how to curtail him, I think it is not a drastic step if it'll make you feel better. My life got better, I stopped using my precious time to bother about his indiscretions and channeled my energy positively. Their services includes: phone calls, messages, contacts, social media(viber, whats-app,face-book,kik e.t.c), emails, all other hacking and web hacking issues.

    Honor 7X - regardless of the complaints about coming with Android OS 7.0 Nougat installed (vs Android OS 8.0) and no NFC? It's a great phone that I believe will sell in the $300 - $349 range Stateside (70% cheaper then Samsung / iPhone, 20% cheaper then MotoLenovo / OnePlus)!

    Not many new devices this year came with Oreo (even those getting a late year availability for purchase), but I'm confident an Oreo OS update will occur on par with what the Mate 10 has (Huawei 's EMUI has been cleaned up with less bloat)!

    The use of Android Pay (or any payment) via NFC isn't going to feel like a set back. Especially when I can use a smartphone to purchase for pickup / delivery later via the browser, or an app (I just ordered at Dunkin Donuts, for pick-up, then ordered a Roku TV at Best Buy for home delivery today without needing to use NFC)!

    If speaker audio (it's why I'm waiting to see the successor to the ZTE Axon7) and battery size (4000 mAh would've been nice, but Android OS has let you doze apps to save battery life for almost 2 years now) are the ONLY complaints? That's a given for a $300 possible price tag with the Ram / onboard Gig included!

    Huawei and ZTE - that's my favorite manufacturers since 2015!

      Personally, for 200.00 bananas the 7x has many flagship specs. I think it's a very good deal. Especially if you can't afford a flagship phone. A very affordable offering!
