Honor 7X, unveiled globally by the Huawei-owned brand in October, will be launched in the Indian market in December. The brand’s Global President George Zhao said in an interview with IANS that it will introduce the Honor 7X at an “unbeatable price”, such that it will have no competitor in that segment. This is part of the company’s plan to become the country’s top smartphone brand within the next three years. Honor 7X will be available both online and offline as the company aims to improve upon its offline retail channels and boost the marketing in order to become the leader.
Reportedly, Zhao also said that Honor was aiming to increase its position in the Indian market through the release of powerful handsets at low costs, and, of the Honor 7X specifically, said it would have such “a price that it will have no competitor in that segment.”
The Honor 7X smartphone has a 5.93-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio and full-HD+ (1080x2160px) resolution, and dual cameras on the back. It runs the Android 7.0 Nougat-based EMUI 5.1 custom skin, and is powered by the octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 659 SoC, with 4GB RAM. Keeping everything running is a 3340mAh battery. The handset features a duo of 16-megapixel and 2-megapixel rear cameras, and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera.
It comes in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB storage variants, which are priced at CNY 1,299 (roughly Rs. 12,890), CNY 1,699 (approximately Rs. 16,850), and CNY 1,999 (about Rs. 19,820), respectively.
