Take the Oppo N3 concept and place the camera on a more adjustable stalk and you have what Huawei are calling the new Huawei Honor i7.
Due to TENAA leaks the main surprise of the Huawei Honor i7, that being the camera is places on a adjustable stalk, was spoiled, but yesterday’s release did show us all just how mobile the camera is and how versatile the i7 could be.
Holding the Honor i7 in your hand you would be forgive that the device is just a normal Honor phone. If follows a similar design to the Honor 6+, but on closer inspection you can see that upper bezel has bee reduced slightly thanks to the lack of dedicated front camera.
To take selfies then the main 13 mega-pixel camera can be spun up and around to face the front. The concept is similar to the Oppo N3, but this time only a very small portion, enough for the camera and dual LED flash, turns.
If you are worried that the camera looks a little fragile then it might put your mind at ease that Huawei have designed it to withstand forces of 50kg, and guarantee the rotating mechanism for 2 years.
Looking past the adjustable camera, the Huawei Honor i7 also features a side mounted fingerprint scanner, 5.2-inch FHD display, and a Snapdragon 616 octacore chipset. The phone also has a 3100Ah battery which should be plenty for a 5.2-inch phone.
There are 3 versions of the phone available. The basic 1599 Yuan model will have 2GB RAM and 16GB memory but will only work for China Mobile networks. A full network model with 2GB RAM and 16GB memory will cost 1699 Yuan, while a 3GB RAM 32GB memory full network version is 1899 Yuan.
