Huawei is quietly working to add two new models to its Honor series of smartphones. The purported Honor 7 phones will be released in two variants – regular and high-end. As per the rumours, the regular version of the Honor 7 will be released in June while the high-end version will be released in July.
Both new Honor 7 series variants have been built using the aircraft grade metal to wrap the powerful hardware inside. The two Honor 7 variants pack same hardware except the difference in storage and RAM.
The Honor 7 devices will have a 5-inch 1080p display powered with home-grown Kirin 935 mobile chipset. The regular variant will pack 3GB of RAM and 16GB of on-board storage, while the high-end one packs 4GB of RAM and 16GB of on-board storage. There’s no clarity yet on the presence of a memory card slot.
At the back will be a 13 megapixel camera with LED flash and optical image stabilization. Both devices will run Emotion UI 3.0 based on Android 5.0 Lollipop and pack 3,280 mAh battery.
Although the images show a fingerprint sensor slot under the rear camera, there’s no confirmation on whether it will exist at the release. Expected to be launched next month, the regular version is said to be priced at CNY 1,999 ($322), while the high-end variant will go for CNY 2,699 ($435).
