Honor 7 China release - white, gold and silver

Honor 7 is heading to Europe

The Honor 7 is set to be released in Europe soon, after being unveiled in China. The forthcoming smartphone has an extremely impressive set to specs, capable of going head-to-head with devices like the Samsung Galaxy S6 and LG G4.

Despite matching the specs of more illustrious Android smartphones, the Honor 7 is likely to be priced considerably lower.

The Honor 7 is not only designed to compete against rivals from Samsung, LG, HTC and Sony in terms of specs, but the new device will also offer up a premium metal build.

Powering the Honor 7 will be a 64-bit octa-core Kirin 935 processor from parent company Huawei, with two of the cores clocked at 2.2 GHz, and the other two clocked at 1.5 GHz. Other specs include storage capacities between 16 GB and 64 GB, 3 GB RAM, a Mali-T628 MP4 GPU, microSD card expansion slot, 20-megapixel main shooter and 8-megapixel front-facing camera.

At 5.2 inches, however, the display is smaller than some of the other smartphones in Honor’s line-up, although it is a similar size to flagships from rival manufacturers.

The 1080 x 1920 resolution is lower than is offered on the Samsung Galaxy S6 and LG G4, although it is the same as is used on HTC and Sony’s flagship smartphones.
