The smartphone comes in three options in terms of internal storage — 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB, and also supports storage expansion through microSD card up to 256GB.
Honor 7X comes with dual-camera setup, featuring a 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.
In India, the phone is expected to be available in Gold, Aurora Blue and Black colours. The company has also planned for several offers for the users who have registered to buy the smartphone.
On the landing page for the phone, Amazon India mentions that Honor will be giving away 150 power banks of 10,000mAh capacity and 850 earphones with a mic, to select registrants. The winners for the same will be announced on January 8, 2018.
