The upcoming Honor 7A is expected to launch on April 2, since a few fresh reports revealed images of the media invites that Huawei's subsidiary has already sent out. Its specs and features are said to include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, a 13 MP + 2 MP dual camera on the back, a 3,000 mAh battery, and EMUI 8.0 based on Android 8.0 Oreo on top.

Huawei is very busy these days in all areas of the markets, and the P20, P20 Pro, or the almighty Porsche Design Mate RS managed to surpass the expectations of all mobile photography fans. Now, we hear that the company's subsidiary, Honor, is ready to launch another affordable handset with a 5.7-inch display and a dual camera.

The Honor 7A is rumored to feature the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor as the recently released Huawei Y7 Prime (2018), as well as the same amounts of memory and internal storage space (3 GB and 32 GB). Indian website MySmartPrice also mentions a screen resolution of 1,440 x 720 pixels, a main camera setup with 13 MP + 2 MP sensors, an 8 MP selfie shooter, and a 3,000 mAh battery. The operating system is — unsurprisingly — EMUI 8.0 on top of Android 8.0 Oreo.

Since the upcoming Honor 7A shares a lot of specs and features with the Huawei Y7 Prime (2018), it is rather safe to assume it will come with 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, and GPS with A-GPS support. By the looks of the leaked images, however, it seems that the fingerprint reader is missing.

The price of this handset might be a problem since the unconfirmed rumors mentioned by MySmartPrice say CN¥1,499, which is the equivalent of US$238. For this amount, one can easily find a more powerful handset that uses a HiSilicon Kirin 659 or a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, for example the Honor 7X or the Xiaomi Mi A1.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
