Honor 7X Hands-on Review

By 12:14 Wed, 18 Aug 2021 Comments


Huawei is the latest manufacturer to join the 18:9 ratio hype with its subsidiary brand Honor after plenty of companies haged introducing phones with tall screens. The Honor 7X was just launched in China and we already have first-hand impressions of the device.

Huawei has upgraded the chipset compared to the Honor 6X and there is a Kirin 659 ticking inside the recent device. It's not a high discontinue chipset, mind you. Performance-wise it should be quite similar to the Kirin 658 as seen in the popular mid-ranger Huawei P10 Lite.

The classy screen on the Honor 7X is also visibly different from the Honor 6X's - now it has 18:9 ratio and 2160 x 1080 pixels for resolution, or Full HD+ as some already call it.

The cameras are still dual but positioned in a horizontal setup. Some might say they even see like Minion eyes. Huawei is not rushing with ditching the headphone jack, it's still down there.
