Honor 7X spotted on Geekbench, Kirin 659 outperforms the Snapdragon 625
The upcoming Honor 7X has been spotted on popular benchmark platform Geekbench with specs that mostly conform to the leaked details.
The Honor 7X is to be a successor to the immensely successful Honor 6X that was released much earlier in the year. It's expected to sport a massive 5.9-inch FHD display, probably with an 18:9 aspect ratio, dual rear cameras, up to 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage, and a 3240 mAh battery. There's also a chance that it features a full-screen display similar to what we'll be getting on the new Mate 10 flagship.
The Geekbench listing was nothing out of the ordinary for the most part, with a 909 single-core score, and 3159 multi-core score placing the Kirin 659 aboard the Honor 7X on roughly the same performance range as Qualcomm's Snapdragon 626. The listing also shows the Honor 7X running on Android 7.0, which is indicative of EMUI 5.1. We expect the device to get EMUI 6 in the coming months, though.
The Honor 7X is expected to come with a price tag in the region of US$300.
