The Honor 7X is now official, with Huawei’s subsidiary launching the handset on October 11 just as rumours predicted. The Honor 7X features an 18:9, 5.93in full-front display with a 1,080 x 2,160 pixel resolution at 407ppi.

The camera is another standout feature; a dual-sensor primary appears to be using a similar setup to what will show up on the Huawei Mate 10 Lite; a 16MP and 2MP combo, plus a solo 8MP secondary on the front.

In the CPU department you’re looking at a Huawei homebrew Kirin 659 octa-core chip, with eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores and a Mali-T830 MP2 GPU, plus 4GB of RAM. Storage options include 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB, and it supports microSD expansion. Meanwhile, the battery is rated at 3,340mAh.

The software package is Android Nougat 7.1 with Huawei’s Emotion UI on top, build EMUI 5.1.

At the moment, the Honor 7X has only been confirmed for the Chinese market, where it will hit retail on October 17, however, we have a strong suspicion it will become more widely available. Based on the Chinese prices, it may retail in Europe for €170 (32GB), €220 (64GB), and €260 (128GB).

In addition, we’ve heard word that another Honor handset is being launched on December 5. Honor has begun issuing invitations to an event in London on that date, with an image which clearly shows a full edge-to-edge, bezel-less display and the slogan “Max Your View”. The hashtag in the bottom corner also seems to be used for devices with dual-sensor cameras.

Huawei is currently preparing to launch one of its lead models; the flagship grade phablet known as the Huawei Mate 10 on October 16 – it’ll come in four variants, Huawei Mate 10, Huawei Mate 10 Pro, Huawei Mate 10 Plus, and Huawei Mate 10 Lite. However, Huawei also has a subsidiary firm that produces the Honor brand of smartphones, and a follow-up phone to the Honor 6X is being readied for a launch in October as well.

October 11, specifically, will see the Honor 7X launching, the company confirmed the event in a post on Chinese social network Weibo. The banner features a slogan, which naturally is in Chinese; a rough translation reads “Want to see farther than ordinary people? Higher? Wider? Everywhere is your world.”

This could be referring to enhanced camera capabilities, which may or may not involve the Leica branded camera hardware seen on the Huawei Mate and Huawei P flagships.

Alternatively, it may be a reference to the firm’s EntireView display brand also seen on those flagships, which is an edge-to-edge 18:9 aspect ratio display keeping up with the trend laid by Samsung, LG, and now Apple with the iPhone X.

Rumoured specs for the Honor 7X include a 5.5in display and Huawei’s own Kirin 670 processor, along with 4GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage. Typically Honor devices are kept relatively low cost, as the target demographic is decidedly younger; a rumoured RRP bracket in Chinese Yuan translates roughly to between $220 and $270.
