Huawei sub-brand Honor has geared up to release Honor 7X in China. Honor confirmed on its website that Honor 6X successor will be officially announced on October 11. Honor did not share any concrete details in the invite, though. Meanwhile, some Weibo posts point out that the company has started sending out physical media invites for a presser next month.
As pointed out by the physical media invites, Honor 7X could feature a full-screen display on the front. Moving on to the back, the phone can be seen flaunting vertically aligned dual camera lenses next to a LED flash. It also seemingly features a rear-mounted fingerprint much like its predecessor.
According to reports, the full-screen display on Honor 7X is expected to be similar to that of recently unveiled Huawei Maimang 6. Powering the device could be Kirin 659 processor. There are speculations that it would come with no USB Type-C interface. The user also shared a camera sample taken from Honor 7X.
Honor 6X (Review), on the other hand, features a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080 x 1920 pixels) IPS 2.5D curved glass display and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies. It is powered by Huawei’s own Kirin 655 octa-core processor coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The handset supports microSD card expansion (up to 128GB).
The Honor 6X supports hybrid dual-SIM with 4G VoLTE. You can either use two SIM cards at one time or one SIM card and a microSD card. The handset measures 150.9 x 72.6 x 8.2mm and weighs 162 grams. It is backed by a 3340mAh Li-Ion battery with support for fast charging.
