Huawei’s sub-brand Honor is planning to launch Honor 7X smartphone in the Indian market by the end of December. While the launch date is not yet confirmed, the company has opened registrations for the device on its own website and on Amazon India. The company has said that the smartphone will be exclusively available online via Amazon India.
Amazon has already created a landing page for the Honor 7X, without explicitly mentioning any details about its price or availability. The terms and conditions page of the registration campaign reveals that the smartphone will go on sale sometime in the last week of December, following the closure of the registration window.
Honor is also giving away 150 power banks of 10,000mAh capacity and 850 earphones with mic to select registrants, and the winners for the same will be announced on January 8, 2018. While not yet official, this could be the date from when the Honor 7X will go on sale in India.
The company said that there will be twenty winners who will receive Honor 7X devices after taking part in the ‘Amazon Registration and Amazon App Event’. For the bumper prize, seven registered users will win holiday packages from Yatra worth Rs. 75,000.
Honor 7X features a 5.93-inch Full HD+ full-screen display with thin-bezels and 18:9 aspect ratio with a screen resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels. It is powered by an octa-core Hisilicon Kirin 659 chipset, along with 4GB of RAM. The phone comes in three options in terms of internal storage — 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB, and also supports storage expansion through microSD card up to 256GB.
It sports a dual-camera setup with 16-megapixel and 2-megapixel sensors on the rear and an 8-megapixel camera sensor on the front. The smartphone packs a 3,340mAh battery and runs on Android 7.0 Nougat-based company’s own EMUI 5.1 custom skin.
Earlier, Honor’s Global President George Zhao said that the phone will come with an “unbeatable price”, but refrained from confirming any exact price information. In India, the phone is expected to be available in Gold, Aurora Blue and Black colours.
The 32GB storage model of Honor 7X is priced at CNY 1,299 (~$200) in China, while the 64GB model is priced at CNY 1,699 (~$260) and the top-of-the-line model with 128GB storage costs CNY 1,999 (~$304).
