Huawei Honor 7X goes official with 18:9 screen, dual camera

Peter, 11 October 2017

Huawei just introduced Honor 7X, meaning its sub-brand has officially entered the world of 18:9 screens (we’re not counting this one, which is sold under four different names).

The LCD measures 5.93” - about as wide as the 5.5” screen of the Honor 6X, but taller. It has 1,080 x 2,160px resolution (407ppi) and it sits below a 2.5D glass. The fingerprint reader on the 6X was already on the back, so no change here.

The camera has been updated, however. We’re now looking at a 16MP main camera with a 2MP secondary one along with an 8MP camera on the front.

The Honor 7X is powered by a Kirin 659 chipset – eight Cortex-A53 cores grouped in two clusters along with Mali-T830 MP2 graphics. The RAM is fixed at 4GB, but the storage ranges from 32GB to 128GB and there’s room for a microSD card on the hybrid dual SIM slot.

The phone will launch with Android 7.0 Nougat + EMUI 5.1. It has a 3,340mAh battery and a microUSB port (sigh). The phone’s metal body measures 7.6mm thick and weighs 165g.

@Fuji-san. Are you really that dense? You're comparing the wrong phones, fool! You're doing an apple-to-orange comparison between the S8 and the S7 Edge. You need to compare the screen size of the S7 to its successor the S8, and the S7 Edge to th...

It's not my problem if you're too blind and stupid to know how to make proper use of 18:9. The text wrap and web browsing works just fine for me. Bottom line is... the phone makers are moving forward in droves to make 18:9 phones that better suit M...
