The new device has been priced considerably lower than previous rumors suggested.

Huawei officially launched its newest Honor 7 smartphone. The handset features a 5.2-inch, FullHD display and is available in 3 versions. The lowest one offers 16 GB of storage space and LTE connectivity, the middle option comes with 32 GB and dual-SIM LTE. The top one also supports dual-SIM LTE and allows to store up to 64 GB of data.

The device is powered by Huawei’s own Kirin 930 processor with eight Cortex A53 cores, of which four are clocked at 2.2 GHz cores and the other four at 1.5 GHz for less power-hungry tasks. Graphics is taken care of by the Mali T628 GPU. Honor 7 is outfitted with 3 GB of RAM and a micro-SD slot allowing to expand the storage space by up to 128 GB. Battery capacity is 3100 mAh.

On the back, we’ll find a fingerprint sensor as well as a 21 MP camera utilizing a Sony IMX230 sensor and Phase Detection autofocus technology. The front shooter allows capturing 8 MP selfies. Honor 7 runs Android 5.1 Lollipop with Huawei’s Emotion UI 3.1.

The device will initially only be available in China, starting on July 7th. Users in other markets should expect it in the following months. Pricing has been set at $322 for the 16 GB version, $354 for the 32 GB and $402 for the 64 GB one.
