Last month, Huawei’s sub-brand Honor launched the Honor Play 7C in China. While the phone went on sale in China from 13th March, the Flame Red color variant was not available for purchase. Today, the company has announced that the Flame Red color variant of the Honor Play 7C will be available on sale from 17th April.
The 3GB RAM and 32GB storage model is priced at 899 Yuan (approximately $143) while the top-end variant with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage cost 1299 Yuan, which roughly converts to $207. Apart from Red color, the device is also available in Black, Gold, and Blue color options.
The Honor 7C sports a large 5.99-inch TFT LCD IPS display with 1440 x 720 pixels screen resolution. Under the hood, the device is powered by Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 450 14nm octa-core chipset clocked at 1.8GHz, with integrated Adreno 506 GPU.
The processor is paired with 3GB of RAM on the standard version and there’s also another version which packs 4GB RAM. The 3GB RAM version houses 32GB of storage while the 4GB RAM model comes with 64GB of internal storage. Both models come with a microSD card slot, allowing users to expand the phone’s storage capacity up to 256GB.
The smartphone features a dual camera setup at the rear, which is located on the top left corner and is aligned horizontally with an LED flash on the inner edge. It comprises a 13-megapixel primary + 2-megapixel secondary camera sensors. The secondary camera is a bokeh camera which should create vivid shots with blurred background. On the front side, there’s an 8-megapixel selfie shooter with the display acting as a smart soft light when taking selfies.
There’s a fingerprint sensor on the back and the phone comes with the face unlock feature. The device is running the latest EMUI 8.0 custom interface which is based on Android 8.0 Oreo operating system. The phone packs a 3,000mAh battery which the company claims is optimized to provide longer battery life.
