Tag: Honor 7X India

The Honor 7X is an entry-level phone, available now for a price of €299 (£269) while the Honor View 10 is being billed as the first AI (Artificial Intelligence) phone and will cost €499 (£449) when it launches in January 2018. This is something that was previously on the Huawei phones that have Leica-branded cameras, so this is a good feature to bring to the Honor 7X. The V10 will be launched in India soon and dates are yet to be announnced. There's also a function for users to take a photo of a sign in another language, which can be translated to English - a similar function to Google Lens. The AI-powered Portrait mode for selfies is also being outed. So the Honor 7X is actually the same size as the Honor 6X which had a 5.5-inch display. There are three variants to choose from - 4GB RAM with 64GB internal memory and 6GB RAM plus 64/128GB storage. Indeed, like most in vogue smartphones today, the Honor 7X also boasts a bezel-less (5.93-inch) display with 18:9 aspect ratio.

We went hands-on with the Honor View 10 at the London launch event, and these are our first impressions.

All of the above is powered by a 3,340 mAh battery and the device packs in dual SIM support with two SIM slots. There is an octa-core Kirin 659 processor under the hood, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of built-in storage.

The rear camera setup on the Honor View 10 sports two sensors - one 16-megapixel RGB sensor and the other a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor, complete with an f/1.8 aperture, PDAF, dual-LED flash. Cameras are the major difference between the Honor 7X and Honor 9i as the latter comes with dual selfie cameras.

Honor is promoting AI on the View 10 which at this time is primarily focused on machine learning functionality, such as with the camera application.

Honor is really emphasizing the AI capabilities of its device with the Kirin 970 chip, and the phone features facial unlocking, intelligent display rotation (so the phone doesn't change orientation if you're using it in bed for example), and an intelligent notifications lock. The Honor 7X is shaping up to be a great smartphone, especially for those that don't want to spend a ton of cash. The storage facility comes with 2 variants that include 32 GB and 64GB. The secondary sensor adds depth information to the images.

The presentation also showcased impressive low-light shots taken in full auto mode, not manual mode, and this is where the Honor View 10 could pull ahead of many other phones in its price category.

The handset runs Android 8.0 with EMUI 8 to keep things refreshed.

One nice touch is the arrival of "Supercharge", which will charge the battery to 50 per cent in 30 minutes.
