This week on GizChina – 07/03/2015

Huawei finally took wraps off of their Honor 7 smartphone earlier this week. The Honor 7 has a 5.2-inch screen, a 20 mega-pixel camera, and a Kirin 935 chipset.

2. Meizu MX5 launch

Meizu’s MX5 may sound a little underpowered for a flagship, but there’s certainly an MX5 Pro coming and the pricing isn’t too bad either.

3. 4300mAh battery powered Mlais  MX Base will cost just $99 for a month

Looking for a large-battery phone that doesn’t cost a bomb? Mlais may have an answer in the form of the Mlais MX Base which is a 4300mAh battery phone. Also, it’s only US$99 for the first month!
