Honor's OnePlus 5T Killer Arriving Jan. 8

Honor 7X

The display, again, is 5.93-inches diagonally with 1080 x 2160 pixels across it.

The mid-tier device is powered by the Kirin 659 chipset, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB storage (expandable up to 256 GB), and features a dual-camera with 16 MP and 2 MP sensors.

The Honor 7X comes in three forms, with prices starting from US$199.

For photography, all the three smartphones feature a dual-camera setup at the back, which for all of them have been their talking points.

There's also a gesture trigger option so you can take selfies simply by waving your hand in front of the camera.

Honor 7X will be exclusively available on Amazon India from December 7.

Honor says that the V10 will be released in the U.S., as well as some other major markets like United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain on January 8, 2018.

It's available in midnight black and navy blue, but isn't as notably stunning as other flagships this year, or even compared to the older glass-backed Honor 9. And the phone's 13MP front-facing camera uses AI to take self-portraits. Honor View 10 has a special Gaming Suite which significantly increases performance of mobile games. While we expected the company to launch the Honor V10 as Honor 9 Pro in the global markets, the company instead launched a new View series.

Let's get down to the pricing and availability for the Honor 7X.

The worst thing you could say about the design is that it's a little derivative - a potential nitpick which also applies to the OnePlus 5T and Honor 7X.

It's also great to see the octa-core Kirin 970 processor carried over, as it is Huawei's latest chip and a powerful alternative to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 in most other high-end Android phones this year. Besides, the smartphone has a Hybrid Dual SIM tray, 4G LTE with VoLTE, WiFi (a/b/g/n/ac), Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C port and NFC.

Regarding the Honor View 10, the device is priced at 499 Euros globally, and there is no official price tag for the Indian market. The phone draws power from a non-removable 3340 mAh battery. In the United Kingdom it's priced at £449, in the euozone it's €499.

While the Honor View 10 joins the growing list of new phones launching with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, the Honor 7x has to settle for Android 7.1 Nougat. The phone also can be charged up to 50 percent in 30 minutes. There are dual rear cameras (16MP +2MP) with PDAF and portrait mode an 8MP front facing camera also with portrait mode, beauty mode, and amusing filters.
