Honor View 10 Unveiled in the UK Ahead of January 8 Launch

Huawei's Honor 7X India launch: Check out specs, price and features

After its launch in China, Huawei's mid-range smartphone brand Honor is all set for its India launch on Tuesday alongside the Honor V 10 global launch event at London starting at 8 PM IST. The smartphone, which delivers full-screen viewing experience, will retail at AED 999. Sporting a dual rear camera (16 MP and 2 MP), which can capture Portrait Mode-like bokeh shots with in-focus foregrounds and blurred backgrounds, the photos came out pretty well in the daylight and outdoors. Amazon India will exclusively begin the sale of the new Honor smartphone on December 7. That's the Honor user interface - very similar to, but not the same as, vanilla Android.

The Honor 7X comes with the Honor 8 Pro like all-screen design, though not bezel-less, Huawei claims that the 82.9% screen-to-body ratio on the 7X is the highest in the $199 price segment.

These are just our first impressions with the Honor 7X, since we haven't used it for long, we are saving the rest of our thoughts for the full review, which will be out shortly. It runs the proprietary EMUI 8.0 out of the box, which is based on the latest Android 8.0 Oreo. It was actually one of the first to go with an all-metal build, and that's what we have on the Honor 7X. There Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n (2.5/5G Wi-Fi), GPS/AGPS, GLONASS, Wi-Fi Direct, microUSB v2.0, dual SIM slots and USB OTG support. The Honor View 10 price in India has not been revealed. The device comes in 64GB and 128GB onboard storage variants.


For photography, all the three smartphones feature a dual-camera setup at the back, which for all of them have been their talking points. The smartphone is powered by a 3750mAh battery that's rated to deliver up to 23 hours of talk-time on 3G, and 22 days of standby time with - it is complete with 5V/ 4.5A fast charging support.

On the design front, the new Honor 7X has a whiff of a knock-off iPhone 7 Plus about it. It sports a large 8 MP front selfie camera. The View 10 is the worldwide version of the company's V10 phone, which was launched in China last month.

One nice touch is the arrival of "Supercharge", which will charge the battery to 50 per cent in 30 minutes. The phone is available in either Aurora Blue, Gold, or Black colorways. It is priced at €499 (£449) and will be available in Midnight Black and Navy Blue (no word on United States pricing or any future launch for the Gold or Red versions just yet, sorry!).
