Talking about the key specs of the Honor 7, it comes with a 5.2 inch 1080p display with a pixel density of 423ppi while powered by in-house 64-bit Octa-core HiSilicon Kirin processor supplemented with a 3 GB RAM along with 16 GB and 64 GB internal storage options. Jetting on Android 5.0 Lollipop with Huawei's own Emotion UI (EMUI)3.1, the smartphone comes with dual SIM support and a 3,100 mAh battery which gives immense power in the hands of the users. The battery is equipped with 9V2A fast charging technology which allows users a minimum of 1 hour talk time with 5 minutes of charging.
The shutter features a mind-blowing 20 MP camera with Sony IMX230 sensor that supports phase detection and auto focus. The rear camera is coated by Sapphire glass which makes it scratch resistant. The 6P lenses to filter the unwanted light and dual tone LED flash will make the pictures stand apart. The 8 MP front facing camera is with BSI sensor and LED flash. A couple of other camera features also comes along with this flagship which include slow motion video shooting, personal filters, time lapse mode and even a special Gourmet mode to capture those special dishes.
The fingerprint sensor at the back is an unconventional placement for a smartphone but the same design has been with the Huawei Mate 7. The fingerprint scanner can identify the user and get unlocked in a lightning speed of 0.5 seconds. Users can save upto five different fingerprints on the device. Huawei claims that this fingerprint scanner is one of the best and is alleged to be self learning. Assuring greater accuracy over a period of time.
The phone supports the regular connectivity features including dual 4G networks, NFC, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, GSM, WCDMA and LTE.
The price listed for 16 GB single SIM is Rs 20,515/-, 16 GB dual SIM - Rs 22,577 and for 64 GB dual SIM - Rs 25,645.
Our take on the specs:
A front-mounted fingerprint sensor has always voted to be convenient and sensible, allowing you access to the phone even without holding it. Lets see how the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor is welcomed by the users.
The Sapphire glass protected lens is an added advantage to the camera. With the 64-bit Octa core HiSilicon Kirin processor with 3 GB RAM, the phone will provide you with a powerful, lag-free performance.
Taking into consideration the pricing nature followed by Huawei so far, the Honor 7 seems to be slightly over-priced since the 16GB single SIM variant is offered at Rs. 20,515/-.
