Through a tweet earlier today, Huawei’s sub-brand, Honor, has officially confirmed long-standing rumors that its latest mid-range smartphone, the Honor 7X, will be launched in India on December 5th, with retail sales beginning on December 7th. The device will be sold exclusively on Amazon in India at an “unbeatable price” if recent teasers from the company is anything to go by.

The Honor 7X was recently unveiled in China as the successor to the popular Honor 6X handset from last year. While the 7X comes with a lot of under-the-hood improvements, what really sets it apart from its predecessor visually is its display panel that comes with an elongated 2:1 (18:9) aspect ratio. Another notable difference is the positioning of the fingerprint scanner that has now moved to the back to accommodate the bezel-less design.
