Honor 7X billed for October 11 launch
Huawei is set for the launch of its new mid-range device, the Honor 7X, with a poster released by the company teasing an October 11 launch.
The Honor 6X was released in October 2016 to a mostly positive reception, as it managed to offer an experience similar to that gotten on the Mate 9 at a much cheaper cost. The Honor 7X will be looking to continue that tradition and, if done right, should stand out as one of the best choices in its segment.
Not much is known about the 7X at the moment but leaks have touted it to feature dual rear cameras like its predecessor, a full-screen display like those on the upcoming Mate flagships, a metallic body, and USB Type-C. We expect it to be similar to the Mate 10 Lite that was launched as the Maimang 6 in China last week, albeit with slight differences. That means we may be getting an 18:9 display and the mid-range Kirin 659 on it.
The company also released a sample photo alongside the poster but it's nothing exceptional. Huawei devices are known for having good cameras, though, so we can expect something decent from the Honor 7X.
We'll be sure to keep you updated on this.
