According to an official teaser published by the Chinese company on Weibo, the Honor Play 7C will be officially announced on March 12. The post contains an image with several objects in a smartphone-shaped arrangement, and these objects are suggesting several important features of the phones. The camera and lens at the bottom suggest that this device will have a pretty innovative camera department, even though it is expected to be an affordable device. In fact, this handset is tipped to come with four cameras, two on the back and two on the front side.
Given that there is a mask in the teaser, we guess that Honor Play 7C will support facial recognition, and there will also be an enhanced beauty mode for selfies. It is not mentioned whether the facial recognition feature will rely on a depth sensor or will it be just like the software-based Face Unlock which has recently arrived on some Huawei devices through an update. A depth sensor like the one of iPhone X would surely make the facial recognition more secure and difficult to bypass but that’s unlikely considering its budget placement. The display will have a size of 5.99 inches with an 18:9 aspect ratio and narrow bezels. There are two SIM Cards and a micro SD on the top of the image.
This means that the phone will have a dual SIM dual standby slot, and maybe even a micro SD dedicated slot which will not prevent the users from using both the SIM Card slots. About a month ago, an alleged Honor Play 7C was officially certified by TENAA in three variants with the model numbers LND-AL30, LND-AL40, and LND-TL30. In the renders surfaced it had a full metal unibody design an 18:9 display, a fingerprint reader placed on the back and four cameras.
