Honor CEO Confirms Android Oreo Update for the Honor 8 & Honor 8 Pro, Explains why Honor 7X Launched with Nougat

Just recently, the Chinese variant of the Honor 8 Pro, the Honor V9, received a beta upgrade to Android Oreo alongside EMUI 8. Honor brought Project Treble support along to the device, which makes porting AOSP-based Android Oreo ROMs much easier for developers. Users who own the Honor 8 Pro can upgrade to the Android 8.0 Oreo beta after rebranding their phones unofficially through services such as FunkyHuawei, but it seems that won’t be necessary for much longer. The company’s CEO George Zhao, in an interview with technology site mondo, confirmed that both the Honor 8 and Honor 8 Pro will be receiving the upgrade to Android Oreo.

The Honor 8 Pro receiving the upgrade is not surprising news, because as mentioned before the Chinese variant has already received a beta upgrade that runs perfectly fine on the western version of the device, although after some unofficial software rebranding. EMUI 8 is a fairly incremental upgrade in terms of user-facing features, but all of the 8.0 specific goodies such as the Autofill Framework and picture-in-picture mode make it an update to look forward to. It remains to be seen if software support will continue past Android Oreo for the Honor 8 considering it launched with Android Marshmallow, but the Honor 8 Pro launched this year with Android Nougat on board so we hope software support extends past Oreo.

The interview also touches upon why the Honor 7X launched with Android Nougat instead of Android Oreo. Zhao stated in the interview that the Honor 7X launched with Android Nougat simply because Android Oreo was not ready yet when the device went into mass production. What’s more, apparently the Honor 7X will be receiving the upgrade to Android Oreo very soon. There is currently no time period given for the Android Oreo release on any other devices yet, however.

Android Today: Huawei Starts Rolling Out Oreo Update For Honor 9 and Honor V9, Asus ZenFone 4 To Get In December

After rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Mate 9, Mate 9 Pro and Porsche Design Mate 9, Huawei has now added two more smartphones to the list.

Today, the Honor 9 and Honor V9 are getting the Oreo treat in China. Huawei confirmed that the Honor 9 and Honor V9 users who were enrolled in the beta program will be getting the update first and it will then be coming to other users. However, it all is starting today therefore Android 8.0 Oreo will debut on every unit of Honor 9 and Honor V9 within this week in China.

For now, the update is limited to China, but a global push is expected to kick off by the end of this month. It’s worth noting that Honor 8 Pro users will also get the update as it is the global version of the Honor V9. Besides, Huawei’s Oreo update brings the software version to EMUI 8.0 from its Nougat-based EMUI 5.1 version. With Oreo update, the Honor 9 and Honor V9 (Honor 8 Pro) will get much-talked-about Oreo features like Autofill, picture-in-picture, redesigned Settings app, notification options, and more.

Asus ZenFone 4 to get Android 8.0 Oreo update in December

Following other OEMs, Asus is also gearing up to offer Oreo treat to its smartphones. Today, the company announced that it will be rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo update to its mid-range smartphone, the ZenFone 4. Eventually, all ZenFone 3 and ZenFone 4 will be receiving the update.

Earlier this week, Asus pushed ZenUI 4.0 to the ZenFone 4 Max. The company today announced that it will be rolling Android 8.0 update to its standard ZenFone 4 (ZE554KL) model in December. We don’t know the exact release date yet, but it will arrive sometime this month. For the rest of the ZenFone series phones (there are just so many!) we can assume that the update should arrive sometime next year.

Asus has been pretty discreet about the update timeline for the smartphones in the ZenFone lineup. The company has not made it clear how it is going to go ahead with the update cycle for the rest of the phones. As for the ZenFone 4, the update will first reach the unlocked version and will then move on to the carrier units.

Honor’s new View 10 phone brings iPhone X-style Animoji to Android


 

Huawei’s Honor brand on Tuesday revealed the Android-based View 10, a new flagship phone that features a direct imitation of the Animoji feature available on Apple’s iPhone X.

10fc8_23903-30747-dishonor-l Honor's new View 10 phone brings iPhone X-style Animoji to Android

The View 10’s equivalent is simply called “3D Facial Animation,” The Verge noted. Like Animoji, the technology pairs facial tracking with several animated characters, such as a panda with aviator goggles.

The phone also supports facial unlocks similar to the iPhone X’s Face ID, although the basic concept isn’t new and has previously been offered on some Android and Windows devices.

Huawei and fellow Chinese phonemakers Oppo and Xiaomi are expected to adopt 3D sensors on upcoming 2018 models, following in the footsteps of the iPhone X’s TrueDepth camera. That could mean that features like Animoji will quickly spread under different names and varying levels of quality.

Honor’s custom user interface also resembles iOS 11, but there are some significant differences in the View 10, which ships Jan. 8. While it has a large display, for instance, it isn’t completely edge-to-edge. At the bottom is a Samsung-style home button, whereas the iPhone X completely ditches a physical home button in exchange for touchscreen gestures, Face ID, and miscellaneous combinations of the volume and sleep/wake controls.

Honor 7X first impressions: A premium minimal bezel phone priced a fifth of the Apple iPhone X

Earlier this year, the $250 Honor 6X was launched in the US, which at the time was a third of the price of the iPhone 7 Plus. Today, we have the Honor 7X launching at just $199, one fifth the price of the Apple iPhone X.

Flagship phone prices have skyrocketed to starting levels of $1,000. In the past a sub-$400 Android phone was usually a terrible experience that got worse over time. That is no longer the case.

While Apple and Samsung have pushed the high end price and technology, Chinese manufacturers have significantly improved the mid to low end of the smartphone market and even regularly update these phones. You can now find compelling phones from $200 to $500 that provide nearly the same functionality as flagships with compromises usually taking place in camera performance and other advanced technology.

I’ve been using the $199 Honor 7X for several days and it’s rather stunning to me what you get for that low price. I definitely recommend it for a first phone or for someone who drops their phones a lot and wants a low consequence device.

Specifications

  • Processor: Kirin 659, octa-core with Mali T830-MP2 GPU
  • Display: 5.93 inch 2160×1080 pixels resolution 18:9 LCD (407 ppi) with 2.5D glass
  • Operating system: Huawei EMUI 5.1 based on Android 7 Nougat
  • RAM: 3GB
  • Storage: 32GB internal with microSD card slot
  • Cameras: Rear dual 16 megapixel and 2 megapixel cameras with phase detection auto focus and depth of field effects. Front 8 megapixel camera.
  • Battery: 3340 mAh
  • Wireless connectivity: FM radio, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1
  • Dimensions: 156.5 x 75.3 x 7.6 mm and 165 grams

The US model is L24. There are two other variants with more RAM and internal storage and with different operating frequencies.

There is no NFC chip so Android Pay cannot be used on this phone. It also supports the older microUSB connector for charging. There have to be some compromises for $199. The Honor 7X does have a 3.5mm headset jack though.

Hardware first thoughts

The evaluation phone was handed to me and I opened it up prior to revelation of the price. As I perused the aluminum unibody design, minimal bezels and 18:9 display, and dual rear cameras, my first thought was that this was going to be priced in the $299 to $349 range. The Honor 6X was priced at $250, with the 7X improving on the display, processor, and rear camera resolution so I thought it was natural to increase the price. $199 makes this phone tough to beat.

5e1ab_honor-7x-2 Honor 7X first impressions: A premium minimal bezel phone priced a fifth of the Apple iPhone X







The display looks great and as I have mentioned before, even on phones with higher resolution displays I reduce to 1080p since that looks the same to me as higher resolutions and it saves a bit of battery life. The Honor FullView Display with its 18:9 aspect ratio works well here and the sides, top, and bottom bezels are minimal. I enjoyed watching movies on the display and found the mono bottom speaker to also be quite loud and clear.

The Honor 6X had its dual cameras stacked vertically and the ones on the Honor 7X follow a similar design to the Honor 8 and Huawei P9. The secondary, low resolution camera is used to provide data to the camera software for wide aperture mode and portrait effects. I’ve only taken a few shots with the Honor 7X so far and will be spending more time with the camera over the next couple of weeks.

The rear fingerprint scanner works very well and has the additional functionality Huawei is known for with notification swipe, photo browsing, and more.

Software first thoughts

The Honor 7X runs EMUI 5.1, based on Android 7 Nougat. This version of EMUI provides a fairly stock Android experience with a few Huawei apps. These include Backup, Email, Calendar, FM Radio, Gallery, Health, Messaging, Mirror, Music, Notepad, Voice Recorder, Weather, Videos, and Themes. Most of these are utilties and other apps that enhance the stock Android experience. Unlike US carrier branded devices, there are no dumb games or excessive bloatware installed.

There are several different options for customizing your experience, including navigation button arrangement, detailed notification and status bar customization, smart assistance settings (double tap to turn on display is one option), and more. I also enabled the standard app drawer home screen setup on the evaluation device.

Daily usage, price, and availability

AppleCare for the new iPhone X is $199, so when you realize that you can buy an entire phone, the Honor 7X, for the price of just insurance on a $1,000 iPhone X it makes you think long and hard about the high cost of Apple’s newest flagship.

I’ve only been using the Honor 7X for five days, but haven’t noticed any lag in performance and haven’t had to compromise on any daily usage experience except for mobile photography. I already recommended the Honor 7X to a coworker whose wife is looking for a reasonably priced phone to use with Metro PCS and this is definitely a phone to consider.

Pre-orders for the $199 Honor 7X begin today with availability in mid-December. It will be available in the US in black and blue.

Honor View 10 (Honor V10) hands-on

Honor recently announced the 7X, its new hope for breaking into the U.S. market, but it’s got another device hitting the market that may pique people’s interest too.

This is the Honor View 10, also known as Honor V10 in China.

d140e_Honor-V10-Hands-on-19-of-25-840x473 Honor View 10 (Honor V10) hands-on

The Honor V10 could be thought of as the sibling to the Huawei Mate 10. It’s got a similarly sized low-bezel display, front facing fingerprint reader, the same Kirin 970 SoC, which comes with the cutting edge Mali-G72 GPU. Many of the internals of this device are the same, but it has some trade offs which make it unique, and much more affordable, than the Mate 10.

Unlike the Mate 10, this phone’s got a 1080p screen, akin to the Mate 10 Pro. Is this a bad thing?  Not at all. 1080p screens are still perfectly fine, and this particular 5.99″ FHD+ display looks big, bright, and beautiful. If you want a big display, this has one, and it maintains a form factor that fits comfortably in the hand.

d140e_Honor-V10-Hands-on-19-of-25-840x473 Honor View 10 (Honor V10) hands-on

Powering that enormous display is a 3,750 mAh battery, which is quite respectable for a phone this size. Sure, it’s not the 4,000 mAh cell powering the Mate 10, but it’s close. Honor didn’t give us any estimates as to how long this battery should last you. We think it will do quite well, though we’ll have to see how it fares in our full review.

The View 10’s Kirin 970 SoC puts it on par with phones running the Snapdragon 835. If anyone said this wasn’t a flagship, they’d be mistaken. This is the best processor Huawei currently makes.

d140e_Honor-V10-Hands-on-19-of-25-840x473 Honor View 10 (Honor V10) hands-on

The Mali-G72 is equally flagship-grade, with 12 cores to help it bust through graphically intensive tasks. We think you’ll see similar performance to Huawei’s Mate 10 series of phones, but time will tell once we get more hands-on time with this device. The specs are quite impressive, especially for a likely much cheaper device.

The Honor View 10 comes with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage standard— quite a lot for any device, especially as a baseline. You can expand that storage to 384 GB with a 128 GB microSD card too, so you should be able to fit (most of) your music collection on here locally. This configuration is usually only seen in the highest-end devices, and we’re really glad to see Honor playing hardball.

d140e_Honor-V10-Hands-on-19-of-25-840x473 Honor View 10 (Honor V10) hands-on

The phone’s got dual cameras on the rear, with 16 and 20 MP resolutions. These come with a wide aperture range as well, ranging from f/.95 to f/16. That’s pretty crazy wide open, and we’re excited to see just how much depth of field we’re able to pull out of such a small sensor. Smartphone cameras are not usually very good at that, but we’re hoping to see some interesting results.

These aren’t Leica cameras like you’d find in the Mate 10 or Mate 10 Pro, so you’re not going to able to brag about that. They do, however, have a lot of the same camera features as the Mate series. There’s a nice “pro” mode, moving picture, portrait mode, and yes, even monochrome. We were able to take a couple sample shots at the event. Take a look and let us know what you think.

The camera software I tested is probably not final. The images watermarked themselves “Huawei P9 Leica Dual Camera”, so take them with a grain of salt for now.

For you sound guys out there, the View 10 sports Bluetooth 4.2 as well as aptX and aptX HD support. You’re not getting the latest and greatest Bluetooth 5.0, but 4.2 does very well with power and with these codecs you’ll get you some great sound (assuming you’ve got headphones that support it).

EMUI 8.0 is the fork of Android powering this phone, and it’s based on Android 8.0 Oreo. This is nice to see, and you won’t have to wait months to get all the newest features Android has to offer. Whether this phone will be updated down the road is another question, but we have a long way to go until we see the next version of Android.

d140e_Honor-V10-Hands-on-19-of-25-840x473 Honor View 10 (Honor V10) hands-on

The device will come in Navy Blue and Midnight Black once it hits the US, but China will get additional Red and Gold color variants.

Honor V10 debuts with 18:9 display, Android Oreo, Kirin 970, and of course, it has ‘Animojis’

Honor is probably best know for its mid-range “X” phones, but today the company is unveiling a new flagship-level device in the Honor V10.


c2c39_giftguide_schoon_13 Honor V10 debuts with 18:9 display, Android Oreo, Kirin 970, and of course, it has 'Animojis'

The best gifts for Android users

The V10 was announced at an event in China (via FoneArena) and brings a pretty respectable package to the table. As you’d expect, this device follows the 2017 trend of ditching bezels to the extent possible in favor of including a larger, 18:9 display to give users a bit of extra space. Here, users get a 5.99-inch 1080p display with bezels that about as thin as the competition.

Under the hood, the Honor V10 brings Huawei’s own Kirin 970 processor, the same chipset found in the flagship Mate 10. That’s paired with the latest version of EMUI, 8, as well as Android Oreo out of the box, a first for the Honor brand. There’s also up to 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage depending on the model you pick up.

Aside from that, you also get pretty typical inclusions such as dual cameras on the back with a 16MP primary and 20MP monochrome, and a 13MP front-facing camera. The battery also lands at a healthy 3750 mAh with fast charging available.

One noteworthy thing Honor has done here, though, is copy the iPhone X. Up front alongside that camera, you’ve got an array of other sensors including a VCSEL Projector, IR camera, and two RGB LEDs. Of course, this can be used to unlock the phone with your face (although a fingerprint sensor is still on board and mounted up front), but that’s not where Honor stopped…

As WinFuture shows off, Honor also packed its own version of Apple’s “Animojis” into the Honor V10. The characters present here aren’t the same by any means (the one highlights here is literally a panda dressed like a pilot for crying out loud), but Honor does claim that its version is even better than Apple’s. How so? Well for one, it tracks your tongue too, because why wouldn’t that be a thing?

The Honor V10 will be available in China starting next month in four colors — Black, Gold, Aurora Blue, and a gorgeous Red. Pricing lands between 2699 yuan ($409 USD) and 3499 yuan ($530 USD) depending on the model selected.

Honor V10 unveiled in China with 18:9 display, Kirin 970 chip and Android 8.0 Oreo

5a646_Honor-V10-all-840x560 Honor V10 unveiled in China with 18:9 display, Kirin 970 chip and Android 8.0 Oreo

Honor has unveiled its latest marquee device, the Honor V10. The Huawei sub-brand debuted the phablet-sized device at an event in Beijing, giving us our first look at the phone’s design, spec list, and features ahead of an expected European launch on December 5th.

These days you can’t call yourself a proper flagship smartphone unless you’re packing slimline bezels, and the Honor V10 mostly delivers in this regard. As with Huawei’s Mate 10 family, the Honor V10 packs a “FullView” display with an 18:9 aspect ratio.

The screen itself is a 5.99-inch LCD panel with a 1,080 x 2,160 resolution (Full HD+). This isn’t a true bezel-less display though, in fact, the phone even has space to fit in a front-facing fingerprint scanner despite the relatively high screen-to-body ratio.

On the internal hardware front, the Honor V10 comes equipped with Huawei’s custom octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 970 chipset as standard. There are also three variants that mix up the RAM count and storage capacity. These come in at 4 GB / 64 GB on the base model and 6 GB / 128 GB at the top-end. Storage is also expandable up to 256 GB across all variants.5a646_Honor-V10-all-840x560 Honor V10 unveiled in China with 18:9 display, Kirin 970 chip and Android 8.0 Oreo

While it ditches the Leica branding, the V10 also features Huawei’s now-standard dual-camera suite. The module consists of a 16 MP color and 20 MP monochrome sensor pairing. Unfortunately, there’s no OIS, but it does have Real-Time Scene and Object Recognition functions thanks to Huawei’s AI tech.

This carries over to the 13 MP selfie snapper that is utilized for the phone’s facial recognition security mode. At the reveal event, Honor representatives reportedly claimed that the AI will notice when another person is using the phone and will obscure all incoming calls and notifications.

In addition, the V10 runs Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box with Huawei’s EMUI 8.0 skin over the top. It also packs a respectably-sized 3,750 mAh battery with support for fast charging (from zero to 50% in half an hour, Honor claims), and sticks with a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack.

What it doesn’t have, however, is waterproofing — a caveat that makes Honor’s decision to stage the V10’s first ever promotional video for the Chinese market in a swimming pool more than a little baffling. You can see this in action below.

Honor phones tend to have an eye-popping aesthetic that shuns subtlety for bright colors and brash design. The metal-bodied V10 tones this approach down slightly, but only if you’re looking at the Black version. If you’re looking to turn some heads, you’ll want the Aurora Blue, Gold, or Red model.

Consumers in China can pick up the device starting from CNY 2,699 (around $409) from December 5th. Chances are that’s also when we’ll hear Huawei’s broader release plans at an Honor-themed event being held in London, UK.

What do you make of the Honor V10? Let us know in the comments.

Honor V10 renders reveal “full-screen” handset with dual rear cameras

71411_honor-v10-leak-image-840x513 Honor V10 renders reveal “full-screen” handset with dual rear cameras

Honor is expected to unveil its latest smartphone, the Honor V10, in an event in China tomorrow. We caught a glimpse of what the new handset might look like in a leak last week, but thanks to Chinese communications commission website TENAA, we now have some renders to go on too.

The TENAA listing was spotted by WinFuture.de and it confirms the device design as well as its core specs. The V10 takes the Huawei Mate 10 design approach with a “bezel-less” display with the bottom mounted fingerprint scanner (which possibly doubles as a home screen button) — something that does once more bring into question how we use the terms bezel-less or full-screen.

Meanwhile, the render shows that the previously leaked image is also mostly accurate too — only it looks like the display isn’t going to bleed over into the top bezel as was hinted at.

71411_honor-v10-leak-image-840x513 Honor V10 renders reveal “full-screen” handset with dual rear cameras

As for its specs, the TENAA listing claims that the V10 will come with a 6-inch, LCD display with 2160 x 1080 resolution, Kirin 970 processor and 6 GB of RAM with 64 GB 0r 128 GB internal storage variants. There are also 20 MP + 16 MP camera sensors on the rear, a 13 MP camera up front, a 3,650 mAh battery inside and a slot for storage expansion via MicroSD Card. In addition, the device is expected to launch with Android 8.0 Oreo, and it’s set to be pretty slim at just 6.97 mm. The TENAA listing also confirms that the V10 will include a headphone jack.

The V10 will be unveiled in Beijing before it is expected to be announced in global markets in December; it’s arriving in black, blue, red, and gold, but we don’t yet have any details on its precise price or release date for you.

How do you feel about the Honor V10? Does it have the features you want from a smartphone? Let us know in the comments.

Honor V10 leak shows off near bezel-less display ahead of China launch

fd3e6_honor-v10-leak-image-840x513 Honor V10 leak shows off near bezel-less display ahead of China launchHuawei has enjoyed another busy year of releases in 2017 culminating in the launch of the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro just last month. The year’s not over yet though, and the Chinese giant is holding another launch event on November 28th in Beijing where it is expected to unveil the Honor V10.

While we don’t have too long to wait until the next device from Huawei’s consumer-conscious, youth-focused brand officially breaks cover, a freshly leaked image spotted on Weibo has already given us a good look at the phone’s sleek design.

As expected, the Honor V10 appears to adopt the slim-bezel design of Huawei’s recent Mate series devices to fit a rumored 5.99-inch “FullView” display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. If Huawei’s recent phones are anything to go by, the V10 is likely to output at a 2160 x 1080 resolution, or what the OEM likes to call “Full HD+”.

Recent leaks have suggested the Honor V10 will pack a dual-camera on the rear (16 MP and 20 MP), which unfortunately isn’t visible in the leaked image. We can see the front-camera, however, which has been pegged as a selfie-friendly 13 MP sensor.

While there’s very little else to glean from the image, a set of documents that leaked earlier this month hinted that the V10 will pack Huawei’s bespoke Kirin 970 chipset backed by 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB of internal storage. There’s also a good chance the device will run EMUI 8.0 or 6.0, both of which are based on Android 8.0 Oreo.

All-in-all, the V10 sounds and (judging by the leaked image) looks every bit the part of a just-shy-of-flagship phone. The kicker will be the price and Honor has a solid track record of offering premium specs for a reasonable price – the early word is that it will cost CNY 2,999 in its home region (around $453).

Huawei also has an Honor-focused event planned for December 5th in London where the V10 could make an appearance, potentially alongside the mid-tier Honor 7X.

Honor 7X preview: Performance and style for less | Android Central

Honor’s latest affordable flagship has an 18:9 display and dual-camera capabilities — for (probably) less than you’d expect.

Honor’s “X” series of phones has always toed a fine line in terms of hardware, feature set and price point. The Honor 5X was one of the first handsets to bring metal construction and fingerprint recognition to a cheaper price tier. And a year ago, the Honor 6X added a surprisingly competent dual camera rig to the experience.

As 2017 draws to a close, the Honor 7X makes things even more competitive. The new phone has been soft-announced announced today ahead of Honor’s full launch event on December 5, and assuming it keeps to a price point in line with its predecessors, it could be one of the most compelling sub-€300 phones we’ve seen.

Starting on the outside, the Honor 7X broadly resembles a mash-up between an Honor 8 Pro and a Huawei Mate 10 Pro. It boasts a new, taller 18:9 aspect ratio, with a 5.93-inch Full HD+ (2160×1080) LCD panel — a first for what we assume will be something priced similarly to the 6X.

And around the back, a brushed, anodized aluminum chassis that’s almost identical to the much more expensive Honor 8 Pro — including the signature navy blue hue that’ll be the main color for the UK. (There’ll also be a black model for the color-averse.)

You could argue about whether, like the 6X and 5X, the design is a bit derivative. What’s more important is that there’s nothing at all cheap-feeling about this phone. Around the front, the 2.5D glass of the display finally has an oleophobic coating, which sounds like a small thing, but is hugely important in stopping the screen getting gunked up by fingerprints. That’s aside from the tall aspect ratio that gives makes phone just as modern-looking as a OnePlus 5T or LG V30.

The premium design and brushed finish of the Honor 7X takes a step beyond 6X and 5X.

Fortunately, the flagship-like aesthetics of the Honor 7X don’t come at the cost of durability. While Honor isn’t advertising the phone as being drop-resistant in the same way as a Moto Z2 Force, the 7X does boast reinforced corners — the main impact point for any drop — to reduce the likelihood of permanent damage if it hits the floor. I haven’t put this to the test with my unit (yet), but I did witness the phone survive a few impromptu drop tests at a meeting in London ahead of today’s announcement.

On the inside, the Honor 7X runs the latest of Huawei’s mid-level Kirin chips, the Kirin 659 — an octa-core 16nm part, along with 4GB of RAM and (in the UK) 64GB of storage, plus microSD. Like many other dual-SIM phones, the 7X’s hybrid slot can support either a single SIM plus SD Card, or two SIMs and no SD card.

For photography, you’re looking at a 16-megapixel main camera with PDAF (phase-detection autofocus), backed up by a 2-megapixel secondary sensor for depth-sensing and portrait mode. (Unlike some Huawei-built phones, the secondary sensor doesn’t capture fine details, it just captures depth.)

75b2f_honor-7x-5 Honor 7X preview: Performance and style for less | Android Central

We haven’t spent a whole lot of time with the Honor 7X’s cameras just yet — look out for our full review for a more comprehensive take — but the handful of indoor shots I took in a dimly-lit breakfast bar looked decent. The Honor 7X’s photos looked a little smudgier than pics from a Huawei Mate 10 Pro I was also carrying — nevertheless, the cheaper device managed to hold its own.

Around the front, there’s an 8-megapixel setup that’s also capable of capturing portrait mode shots — a feature that’s only just starting to gain prominence in the Android world.

A solid loadout of specs — though you’ll be dealing with Android Nougat out of the box.

There are a few compromises hidden away in the 7X’s attractive chassis, though. It charges over microUSB, a decision which presumably saves money, but seems bizarre for any phone in late 2017. And quick charging is limited to 5V/2A with the built-in plug.

There is at least a 3.5mm headphone jack, which supports audio enhancements through Huawei’s HiSten tuning technology.

And the 7X promises at least decent longevity, thanks to the same 3,340mAh internal battery capacity that served the 6X well. That’s nothing to write home about in the flagship space, but should be plenty for a device like the 7X, running lower-powered silicon.

On the software side, the compromises of running a mid-range chip are also apparent: The Honor 7X runs the older EMUI 5.1, based on Android 7.0 Nougat, as opposed to the newer EMUI 8 found in Kirin 970-powered handsets. Visually, this doesn’t make a whole lot of difference, and Honor has even ported some of EMUI 8’s more useful features back to the older software. Apps that don’t support 18:9 natively can easily be scaled up to fill the full size of the display. And some messaging apps can (optionally) open messages in a split-screen view if you’re watching full-screen video.

75b2f_honor-7x-5 Honor 7X preview: Performance and style for less | Android Central

Besides that, this is EMUI 5.1 just as we’ve seen it on a number of phones over the past twelve months. It’s an improvement on what came before, with a clean blue-and-white color scheme, but there’s still some software weirdness, including a suboptimal lock screen notification system.

We’ll learn more about pricing and availability for the Honor 7X on December 5.

Any device shipping with Nougat at this stage is less than ideal, though in the case of what (likely) will be a cheaper handset, it’s not the end of the world. Honor says it’s planning to update the 7X to Android 8.0 Oreo and EMUI 8 in the first quarter of 2018, but it’s not going into specific dates just yet.

Honor isn’t announcing pricing details for the 7X until the December event, but considering the starting price of the 6X, and the hardware included in the new phone, you might expect a price comfortably within the sub-€300 ballpark.

Stay tuned for our full Honor 7X review, along with coverage from the launch event on December 5.

Honor 7X: First impressions of the sub-£300 Android mid-ranger

THE HONOR 7X has been announced officially, ahead of its launch in London on December 5th.

The “X” moniker is reserved for mid-range handsets, but that doesn’t mean that Honor has made too many compromises for a phone that costs…

…well, we’re not allowed to tell you that yet. Let’s just say it’s well under £300.

The Honor 7X continues the trend for 18:9 bezel-less 1080×2160 (quad HD – not to be confused with 4K or UHD) screens but its 6in screen is actually incredibly comfortable to hold, in spite of its dimensions and metal unibody. The screen is Gorilla Glass 4, so the whole thing is pretty sturdy.

To give you an idea of scale, here it is beside this year’s Honor flagship, the Honor 9, which has a standard screen and bezels (and a fingerprint sensor at the front) 

It is being offered in 32GB or 64GB versions (the 128GB is currently only slated for release in China) and offers a middling 4GB of RAM, powered by a mid-range Kirin 659 processor in BIGlittle formation with four cores at 2.36GHz and four at 1.7GHz.

The camera is pleasing – bringing a dual lens to Honor’s X range for the first time with a 16MP+2MP rear and an 8MP 1080p selfie lens, with lots of software jiggery-pokery for improved low light

Battery stamina is pretty good, and you can just about pound the streets for a day on the Honor 7X’s 3,340mAh battery.

There is a fingerprint sensor and it’s round the back this time which you’ll either love or hate. As ever with Honor pho, es it’s a dual SIM device but the second SIM slot will also take a microSD card of up to 256GB – because that’s the biggest anyone is making right now.

Slight downers are that (probably unsurprisingly) it will be running Android 7.0 Nougat, but we are told that Oreo will be here early next year. The Honor/Huawei standard EMUI skin is over the top which, again, you love or you hate.

But the most surprising and annoying omission is that there’s no NFC. OK, so perhaps not that surprising. With WeChat being the go-to digital wallet in China, its not seen as a high priority feature on cheaper phones, but for some of you who rely on Android Pay, it could be a deal breaker and could be seen as a little naive for a company desperate to break the US as well as Europe as a brand for Digital Natives.

At this point, we’d normally say “it’s a mid-range phone that punches about its weight for the price” and then tell you how much. But that information is classified ahead of the official launch on December 5th. But let’s just say that once again, Honor is smashing it out of the park in the sub-£300 category.

We can also confirm that the price ends in “and 99 pence”, if that helps.

It’s a phone built for snappers, with its full-screen display and twin-lens camera, and even has a graffiti/sticker option built into the editing suite, so it achieves its ambition there in spades, but you might find the 4GB RAM a little limiting (it’s nearly 2018, after all) and the lack of NFC frustrating.

European variants which will be sold through the Honor website are Black and the signature blue. There is also a gold version but that’s not current slated for UK release.

The good news is that if this isn’t your bag, a new incremental flagship, the Honor V10 has launched in China, and with a big event planned for the Honor 7X on December 5th (when the pricing will be revealed) then we have a hunch that London could see a double whammy for Christmas. µ

Any device shipping with Nougat at this stage is less than ideal, though in the case of what (likely) will be a cheaper handset, it’s not the end of the world. Honor says it’s planning to update the 7X to Android 8.0 Oreo and EMUI 8 in the first quarter of 2018, but it’s not going into specific dates just yet.

Honor isn’t announcing pricing details for the 7X until the December event, but considering the starting price of the 6X, and the hardware included in the new phone, you might expect a price comfortably within the sub-€300 ballpark.

Stay tuned for our full Honor 7X review, along with coverage from the launch event on December 5.
