Honor launches Honor 7C in the UK.
The £ 169 device comes with a 13MP + 2MP dual camera and a 5.99-inch Full View display.
Face recognition will be added in the May OTA update.
Honor brings a fully equipped and affordable smartphone with the Honor 7C to the UK. The successor to the Honor 6C, which was launched in China last month, is expected to hit the market at GBP 169.99 by the end of April.
The Honor 7C is a metal unibody design with 2.5D tempered glass and a total thickness of only 7.8 mm. It also has a 5.99-inch Full View display with an aspect ratio of 18: 9 and a resolution of 1440 x 720. Affordable phones are offered in China in gold, but British consumers can only get phones in blue or black.
On the back is a dual camera with 13MP and 2MP combo and phase-detection autofocus, which supports large-aperture bokeh images, panoramas, and HDR. The front camera, on the other hand, is an 8MP shooter located next to the “smart soft light” LED, which allows you to take a selfie at night with up to three brightness settings.
Another important selling point of 7C is that it includes Honor face recognition software to unlock your hands-free phone. In honor of the technicians, it examines 1,024 elements on a person’s face and it only takes 0.87 seconds to unlock the phone. Unfortunately, this feature is not available at the time of release and will instead be available in the May OTA software update. The back of Honor includes a fingerprint sensor as a backup.
As for the rest of the specifications, the honor 7c display is powered by a Qualcomm Octacore Snapdragon 450 SoC processor with 3 GB of RAM and a 3,000 mAh battery. The 32GB internal storage can be expanded up to 256GB thanks to three card slots with space for two SIM and microSD cards. In addition, the 7C runs on the Android Oreo EMUI 8.0 platform right out of the box and supports dual Bluetooth connectivity.
Honor has been incredibly busy in recent months and there are no signs of slowing down. The Huawei sub-brand today announced the wider availability of the 7C model along with the cheaper Honor 7A. His latest flagship, Honor 10, will break the cover in May.
As for the 7C, it’s hard to complain about a phone under £ 200 with two cameras and (ultimately) face recognition. There may be some delays due to a lack of NFC and USB-C (7C has a common USB 2.0 port), but 7C is a mid-range device with a set of features and decent specifications. It should please the person you are looking for.
Stay tuned for news about the growing international availability of 7C and update this post as more details become available. What do you think of Honor 7C? Let us know in the comments.
Looking at these two devices from the outside, the Honor View 10 and OnePlus 5T design approaches are very similar. It’s not hard to tell which one inspired you, but it’s a very attractive and well-designed smartphone. Honor View 10 and OnePlus 5T feature an all-metal body, smooth surface, rounded corners, and similarly arranged plastic antenna lines.
The only major difference from their design is that the Honor View 10 has a perfectly flat back, while the OnePlus chose a stone shape with a curved back on the 5T. Honor View 10 and OnePlus 5T feel premium in hand, but with a number of 5T curves, they are a bit more comfortable and ergonomic. Thanks to the narrowed back edge, the phone is thinner to the touch than it really is.
The arrangement of the buttons and ports between them is also quite similar. The power and volume buttons are on the left or right. Most inputs and outputs are at the bottom, including 3.5 mm headphone jacks, USB Type-C ports, and individual speakers. The View 10 and 5T is not necessarily the most interesting and unique, but it does not undermine the fact that it is functional and aesthetically pleasing.
Front View 10 and 5T are equipped with a large display with an aspect ratio of 18: 9, which gives it an almost frameless appearance. The View 10 display measures 5.99 inches with a resolution of 2,160 x 1,080 or Full HD +. The 5T display has only 6.01 inches of hair with the same resolution of 2,160 x 1,080. Both devices maintain an asymmetrical look with a very thin side frame and minimal top and bottom frame that surrounds the display.
The main distinguishing factor is the display technology used. The View10 uses an IPS LCD panel, while the 5T is an AMOLED display. However, if no one tells you, it can be difficult to say that it was not AMOLED because the View 10 display is incredibly vivid and has a great viewing angle.
