As expected earlier, Honor has launched two new smartphones at its 2017 global launch event held in London today. The smartphone, which delivers full-screen viewing experience, will retail at AED 999. The Honor 7X features a 5.93-inch Full HD display with 18:9 aspect ration and a pixel density of 407ppi.
It's also great to see the octa-core Kirin 970 processor carried over, as it is Huawei's latest chip and a powerful alternative to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 in most other high-end Android phones this year.
Huawei's Honor sub-brand is created to cater for younger people. The Honor 7X is an Amazon exclusive smartphone and will go on sale starting December 7th for the price of INR 13,999 (4GB + 32GB) and INR 15,999 (4GB + 64GB).More news: Apple agrees to pay Ireland €13bn in back taxes after European Union challenge

Honor View 10 delivers revolutionary mobile AI and ultimate performance, Zhao told reporters here. Although China now makes up 85 per cent of Honor's global revenues, Zhao said that the aim is to shift this over the next five years so that by 2022, 60 per cent of revenue will come from outside of China. While the Honor 7X is fueled by a 3,340mAh battery, the Xiaomi Mi A1 comes with a 3,080mAh battery, whereas the Moto G5S Plus comes with a 3,000mAh one.
The big twist is that the fingerprint sensor has been incorporated into the glass, snuggled under the narrow bezel.
The View 10 will use the 13MP front facing camera for facial unlock. The memory is expandable up to 256GB via microSD. Honor claims that its fast charging technology can charge the battery up to 50 percent in just 30 minutes. The device will be available in Navy Blue, Midnight Black, Beach Gold, Aurora Blue and Charm Red colour options. In the United Kingdom it's priced at £449, in the euozone it's €499.More news: Google launches two-wheeler mode in Google Maps for India
