Huawei managed to get a lot of press exposure last year thanks to the company’s really solid smartphone offerings. The Ascend Mate 7 and Ascend P7, in particular, were very popular, and the company has already released a number of devices this year. Huawei has announced the Huawei P8 line of devices, which includes the company’s flagship for 2015, the Huawei P8. They have also announced some mid-range smartphones and tablets. That being said, Huawei is going to launch another high-end device on June 24.
This Chinese smartphone manufacturer has announced yesterday that the much-rumored Huawei Honor 7 will see the light of day on June 24, a handset which has been leaking like crazy over the last couple of months. We’ve already seen both this device’s looks and specifications in previous leaks, and the device was also certified by TENAA (China’s equivalent to the FCC). Well, another leak appeared in China, and basically confirmed Honor 7’s specifications.
According to this listing, the handset (PLK-AL10) will feature a 1080p (1920 x 1080) display up front, and it will be 5-inches in size, even though that part isn’t mentioned here. Huawei’s HiSilicon Kirin 935 64-bit octa-core processor will power this thing, and Android 5.1 Lollipop will come pre-installed here with Huawei’s Emotion UI (EMUI) 3.1 installed on top of Google’s OS. Two versions of this device will be available, and the only differences between them will be RAM and internal storage count. The standard version will ship with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of in-built storage, while the high-end version (which is listed in the image below) will sport 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
Based on the previously leaked info, the Huawei Honor 7 will also sport a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, and will be made out of metal (unibody design). The 13-megapixel camera will be located on its back, and the phone is expected to ship with 3,280mAh battery on the inside. 4G LTE connectivity will also be a part of this package, and the pricing info has also leaked a while back. According to the available info, the standard version of the device will cost 1,999 Yuan ($322), while the high-end variant will set you back 2,699 Yuan ($435).
