Honor 7X and View 10: Specs, Price, and Availability Details

Honor 7X to launch today, watch live webcast here

The Honor 7X is a successor to Honor 6X smartphone, which was launched in India earlier this year. It also features similar specifications as the Honor 9i, which is priced at Rs 17,999 in India.

It's the first time the View branding has been used outside of Asia.

HONOR HAS announced the much anticipated Honor View 10, the first global launch for the View series. Since we haven't had it long enough for a review just yet, that will be coming soon enough though.

Honor has formally announced the Honor V10, its AI-injected smartphone that's set to attack at a price point comparable to the OnePlus 5T. A recent report stated that the handset maker would release the device in India in January 2018.

Apart from India, the device will be launched in France, Germany, Italy, Britain, the US, Spain and Russian Federation.

It sports a 5.93-inch full-HD+ (1080×2160 pixels) 18:9 resolution IPS display. We were able to get some nice shots out of the Honor 7X outside at night, and even in some brightly lit places as well. Honor View 10 has a special "Gaming Suite" which significantly increases performance of mobile games. A 16MP primary RGB sensor, along with a secondary 2MP sensor is present at the back of the phone.

Honor 7X Review: An 'Honor'able mention

Elsewhere, the View 10 is almost as well-equipped as the leading Android handsets.

"Honor View 10 marks the beginning of a new AI era, enabling a productive, entertaining and fun lifestyle for users", he added. The device has been priced starting at CNY 2,699 in China. It is priced at €499 (£449) and will be available in Midnight Black and Navy Blue (no word on U.S. pricing or any future launch for the Gold or Red versions just yet, sorry!). It combines the best features of the Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, but there are some omissions, too. Let us know in the comments! Then again, if you are actually looking to upgrade to this phone (which is undoubtedly a mid-range or a budget device) then your current phone likely is micro USB as well.

Optics wise, the Honor 7X features dual rear camera setup.

Slimmer than the iPhone 8 Plus by 2.7mm, the Honor 7X incorporates a 3340 mAh battery which Honor claims can last 22 days in standby mode and 12 hours in video playback mode. The phone is powered by HiSilicon Kirin 970 octa-core processor which runs on the latest Android 8.0 Oreo along with EMUI 8.0.

The View 10 has what the company describes as "fast and secure facial recognition", which faltered under the bright lights on stage at the event, but we will see how it performs in our full review. The fingerprint has been shifted to the back below the camera.
