Honor, the affordable smartphone manufacturer, has just unveiled the latest Honor 7X as a way to help everyone join the new 18:9 display revolution, without breaking the bank. The Kirin 970 SoC as mentioned earlier will be paired with 6 GB of RAM. It is the successor to Honor 6X which was released back in 2016.
In a recent chat with IANS, Honor's Global President George Zhao said the phone will be launched at such a price that "it will have no competitor in that segment". The company says that it has done serious work on reinforcing the corners, however, so that even though the screen extends close to them, a drop won't mean game-over. The official teaser of the Honor V10 hints that AI powered Kirin 970 will be powering it.
The 5.93-inch Full HD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) display is squeezed into a refreshingly compact body measuring 156.5 x 75.3 x 7.6 mm. You can either use a second SIM card or can use a microSD card to expand the phone's memory upto 256GB. At the back, Honor V10 will come with a dual camera setup that comprises of 16-megapixel and 20-megapixel sensors. It is expected to be available in 64 GB or 128 GB storage variant.More news: We can refuse Trump nuke order, says United States commander

The Honor 7X smartphone also features a Fingerprint Sensor but there is no any NFC Chip so you would not be able to send out payments through various wallet apps such as Android Pay and other. Over at the front, there's a single 13MP camera which is a slight bump over the 8MP unit on the Mate 10 series. The absence of a USB-C port - the Honor 7X gets microUSB instead - feels backward, and there's no waterproofing either. And the good news is that, according to 9to5Google, the phone will also be coming to the US. Stay tuned with us for more useful updates!
While the exact price is yet to be declared, the phone was earlier launched in China at a starting price of 1,299 yuan (approximately Rs 12,800).
