Launched: Huawei Honor 7 full specifications


huawei honor 7

Huawei have just wrapped up the launch of the new Huawei Honor 7, revealing that there are 3 models available with pricing set lower than rumours had initially suggested.

Huawei released the alloy bodied Huawei Honor 7 today, in fact there are 3 different versions of the phone, with pricing much lower than we had been lead to believe.

Pricing for the mini Mate 7 (the Honor 7 looks like a smaller version of the famous Huawei Phablet) starts at just 1999 Yuan for the standard LTE model with 16GB internal memory. 2199 Yuan gets the same memory but dual 4G LTE SIM support and 2499 Yuan gets the top end Huawei Honor 7 with 64GB internal memory.

Other than the details mentioned above the specifications of the 3 phones are the same across the board.

The alloy phone boasts a 5.2-inch 1920 x 1080 display with a pixel density of 423ppi, similar to the Vivo Xhshot that was released last year. Above the display is an 8 mega-pixel front facing camera, with fixed focus and F2.4 aperture.

Turn the phone over and a Sony IMX230 sensor is revealed. This is a 20 mega-pixel rear camera with Phase Detection Auto Focus for fast 0.1 second focus. The sensor has an F2.0 aperture 6 lens stack and sapphire glass protection against scratching.

Beneath the camera is a touch fingerprint sensor. This sensor is the more useful version with a one tap unlock feature. The security measure has also been built-in to some apps on the Honor 7 for banking and payments for added security.

Huawei provide the horsepower for the phone with the octacore Kirin 935 chipset running at 2.2Ghz. The processor uses 4 x A53 2.2Ghz and 4 x A53 1.5Ghz cores in a big.LITTLE arrangement and uses a Mali T628 GPU. As with all current Chinese flagships there is 3GB RAM and internal memory starts at 16GB rising to 64GB for the top of the range version. The good news is that the phone also packs a SD card slot for 128GB cards.

Connectivity comes in the form of NFC, WIFI 802.11a/b/g/n/ac (2.4-5Ghz), Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, GSM, WCDMA and LTE. Supported networks for the Huawei Honor 7 (Chinese version) are FDD-LTE B1/B3 and WCDMA 850/800/1900/2100.

Other details include a 3100mAh battery with a fast charge time of just 1 hours and 25 minutes for a full charge and 30 minutes for a 50% charge, and Huawei’s own EMUI version 3.1 based on Android 5.0 Lollipop. Dimensions of the phone are 143.2 x 71.9 x 8.5mm at a weight of 157g.

So those are the official Huawei Honor 7 specifications. What do you think of the latest Huawei flagship?

    Kirin 940 would have been better .
    For everything else its great…….
    But missing the RBGW sensor in P8 .

    • Cpaun
      June 30, 2015

      I was not impressed by the RBGW sensor. I mean from all the P8 reviews and camera samples I noticed that the colors were good, low lights were pretty ok, but in all the cases the detail level was pretty low (even in daylight shots). Could be an aggressive postprocessing, and not the sensor itself though… Of course, this doesn’t mean that this 20Mpx sensor would be better 🙂

      • NightFelix
        June 30, 2015

        I wonder the P8 have OIS right, I wonder this Honor 7doesn’t have OIS. 🙁 Well is just minor flaw but not dealbreaker.

        • Cpaun
          June 30, 2015

          I don’t know about OIS. It’s not mentioned in Honor 7 specs. It’s kinda’ important to me.

    • NightFelix

      Someone pointed out only 2199Yuan and above only have DualSIM LTE. The entry 1999Yuan doesn’t have. Correct me if I’m wrong.

    At 1999CNY the price is too high. The gap between this and the highest possible specs is big. Last year with 1080p and this perf it was ok, now it should be 1499CNY.
    We’ll see what Meizu does very soon (their event is ongoing), i know people expect 1799CNY but i expect 1499CNY to at least compete with the cheaper LeTV and the MI 4

    Huawei also has a little round watch Honor Zero (kinda funny) but no details just an August launch timing
    the screen seems BW, the back doesn”t seem to have a heartrate sensor and the design is too feminine for men

      Considering this is Huawei’s brand to compete with Xiaomi’s Mi and One Plus models the price is just right. And for what they are offering it is a good price. I cant see the Meizu being that cheap either, 1799 is the right price. Meizu isn’t trying to compete with Mi4, that is what the MX4 was for. They will be competing with the Mi5 when it releases.

      • realjjj
        June 30, 2015

        No it’s not priced right at all ,last year a MT6595 was far more competitive and 1080p was still high end, now it’s not.This is a midrange device now not mid high end like Honor 6 or the MXX4 were last year.

        The MX5 looks like it won’t be at 1499 since they use AMOLED and that helps make it thinner but is still rather costly.
        Edit: the Mi Note is 1999CNY now too but that one is also priced too high given the specs.

        • Faux-News
          June 30, 2015

          what in Honor 7 is not high end ? Only the GPU is not a game beast, but otherwise it is high end in all respects. QHD display over a 5.2icnh screen is dumb, not high end.

          Meizu and other players are still incapable of launching big outside China and their prices blow up outside China, while Honor 7 this time is releasing globally in partnership with several online stores worldwide.

            At the end of the day, he still won’t gonna buy even though the price really at his “expected” range. Hater gonna hater, keyboard warrior gonna sitting in front of pc typing..

            Meanwhile, this Honor 7 are amazing to me, gonna buy this because I been waiting for Huawei Mate 7 “Compact” edition.

            the only parameter he uses to determine the price of a phone is its SoC.

            it doesn’t matter if you put dual sim, amoled display, ir blaster, bigger battery, wireless charge, fingerprint sensor and so on…

            according to him a packet of cigarette with a Helio x10 in it should cost 1499 yuan

            • balcobomber25
              June 30, 2015

    I like the compact design, especially considering the fact that is has a 5,2″ screen. Most 5″ competitors are bigger in size. I do however hope to see FDD-4G support for the 800 & 1800 MHz bands will become available for the European version…

    It looks really nice! Love the silver one. Price is tempting, for such specs.

    I wonder if new huawei needs a micro sim or a nano sim. I have checked some sites and some of them say that needs a micro sim and others say that a nano sim. Can you tell me what kind of sim does it need??
