Huawei’ sub-brand Honor has already set the launch date for Honor 7X as October 11. But before the launch event, the Honor 7X gets certified by Chinese regulatory site TENAA, and the certification also revealed key specifications of the smartphone. Specs suggested by TENAA are similar to the Honor 9i smartphone launched in India recently.
The Honor 7X will be launched in China, and the company will launch it in India in early 2018. As per the TENAA listing, the Honor 7X will sport a 5.93-inch FHD+ display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and 2.5D curved glass on top. The smartphone is powered by the all-new Kirin 659 chipset, which is an octa-core chip with four cores clocked at 2.36GHz and other four cores clocked at 1.7GHz.
The chipset will be accompanied with 4GB of RAM, and Honor will be releasing the device in two storage variants- 64GB/128GB. There will be a microSD card as well for storage expansion up to 256GB. At the launch, the device will run Android 7.1 Nougat based EMUI 5.1.
As you can see in the images, the Honor 7X will have a similar design as the Honor 8 Pro with the antenna bands at the back passing through the dual rear cameras. Coming to the camera setup, the Honor 7X, as per TENAA will have a 16MP rear camera with LED flash along with a secondary 2MP camera to add depth to the images. There will be a single 8MP front-facing camera in the smartphone.
The device will measure 156.5 x 75.3 x 7.6mm and weighs 165grams. Below the rear camera is a fingerprint scanner, seen on other Honor smartphones such as Honor 9i and Honor 8 Pro. The device will be backed by a 3240mAh battery with fast charging support.
Lastly, the Honor 7X will arrive in three colour options- black, blue, and gold. Pricing of the device will be available on October 11, which is just two days away from now.
