Huawei has launched the Huawei P8 to overwhelmingly positive reviews, but the Chinese company aiming for U.S. popularity is not done yet. Although we’re looking forward to the Mate 8, too, it looks like another new device is on its way to the American market. The Huawei Honor 7 has shown up render images and leaked photos, and it looks like the first month of Summer will mark its advent. The Huawei Honor 7 release date is pegged for the first half of June, although the company itself has not disclosed official information about the new smartphone yet.
Still, there are already a handful of reporters getting excited about the Huawei Honor 7, and with good reason. According to the leaked information and images, the Huawei Honor 7 will feature pretty neat specs that are between mid-range and high-end and will be able to compete with smartphones from Asus, HTC and even Microsoft.
According to the benchmark information that was leaked this week, the Huawei Honor 7 Plus will feature a powerful MediaTek processor, 4 GB RAM, 128 GB internal storage, a 5.5 inch 1080p display, 13 MP dual-lens rear camera complete with optical image stabilization, a 5 MP front camera and a pretty big 3280 mAh battery. It is said that the Huawei Honor 7 price is set at about $450 unlocked, but there’s another model of the phone in the works, apparently.
The cheaper Huawei Honor 7 variant will sport a 5 inch display, with a slightly inferior MediaTek Kirin processor, the same 13 MP camera but with no dual-lens setup and a price of about $300. The Huawei Honor 7 Plus might also feature a fingerprint scanner, according to more recent rumors, which would not be that surprising.
Huawei is moving towards the American market with a lot of novelty and is probably planning to take on both large and smaller smartphone manufacturers like Blu, Samsung, Asus and Acer as well. Since the information that we have about the Huawei Honor 7 and Honor 7 Plus doesn’t come from the company, we would advise you to take it with a grain of salt. The specs do sound rather realistic for the price, given the fact that we’re looking at MediaTek as the processor make, so we’re confident that at least 60 % of this information is correct. We just have to wait until next month to find out for sure.
