Huawei Honor 7A unveiled: Oreo on an 18:9 screen and a modest budget

Peter, 02 April 2018

Huawei unveiled the Honor 7A, a phone built in the spirit of the View 10. It is an affordable entry-level device, however, launching in China at CNY 800 ($130/€105) for the 2GB/32GB version and CNY 1,000 ($160/€130) for the 3GB/32GB version. It will be available tomorrow at Huawei Mall, Tmall and JD.com.

Huawei Honor 7A unveiled: Oreo on an 18:9 screen and a modest budget

The phone boasts an 18:9 screen, 5.7” in size and with 720 x 1,440px resolution. Good thing too, as the Snapdragon 430 chipset doesn't have the best GPU. Anyway, a fingerprint is still available, though on the back instead of below the screen.

The dual camera on the back is has a 13MP main sensor and a 2MP assistant (used for AI-enhanced bokeh effects, of course). The main camera can capture 1080p video. Around the front, there’s an 8MP selfie shooter with a dedicated LED flash. It can be used for face unlock too.

The good news on the topic of connectivity is that this is a dual-SIM phone – with a separate spot for a microSD card. It has a 3.5mm jack too (backed by Huawei's Histen tech) and FM radio out of the box (something flagships don’t promise these days).

The Huawei Honor 7A is built on a metal frame sandwich between curved glass. The glass has a high gloss finish and is available in Magic Night Black, Platinum Gold, Aurora Blue. There's a 3,000mAh battery inside, no word on fast charging.
