Huawei has just launched its latest mid-range smartphone and it’s gorgeous. The Honor 7X, which is the successor to the Honor 6X, brings a ton of improvements over its predecessor. Firstly, the phone just looks gorgeous with its polished metal body, which comes in various colors namely Blue, Black, and Gold. I especially love the Blue finish on the Honor 7X as it just pops and is extremely eye-catching.

However, the biggest upgrade for me is the inclusion of an edge-to-edge bezel-less display which is a beauty to behold. The phone has no side bezels and even the top and bottom bezels are extremely minimal. The display is a 5.93-inch 18:9 IPS panel with a Full HD+ resolution coming at 2160×1080.

You can check out the full specs of the Honor 7X below:

On paper, the Huawei Honor 7X seems to have nailed everything when it comes to physical build quality and raw specs but real-world performance can only be assessed after we have tested the device. That said, keeping the track record of Huawei in mind, I am not concerned about real-world performance either, as Huawei phones are generally very well optimized and perform and age well over time.

Honor 7X Price and Availability

If you are impressed by Honor 7X and want to buy one, you can register for the pre-order right now at Amazon India website.

The Honor 7X should compete with the Mi A1 and on paper, both the phones match up pretty well. However, the 7X does have the advantage of an 18:9 display. Well, I think it’s a great buy, but if you want to be cautious, you can always wait for our full review.
