What’s to love about the Honor 7X?
It’s better than Flowers or Chocolate
- If you want to make it a Valentine’s Day to remember, what better way to do it than mixing it up with a gift that keeps you connected. The red color will remind your loved one that they should have a phone that is as unique and special as they are.
Fashion Forward Design
- The Honor 7X is the first smartphone to feature the new Honor FullView Display; a 5.93 inch FHD+ display with 2160 X 1080 resolution and 18:9 ratio. The nearly bezel-less screen provides the broadest viewing range and highest screen-to-body ratio in its price class.
- An unequivocal viewing experience becomes a best-in-class entertainment and gaming experience. The FullView Display gives gamers a competitive edge with a broader viewing range than standard displays. An 18:9 screen ratio mimics the 21:9 ratio used in theaters to deliver a more cinema-like experience.
- The fun doesn’t stop there thanks to the spec’d out dual-lens 16MP + 2MP rear-camera with DSLR depth of field effects achieved with a larger aperture (F/0.95 – F/16). New Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) technology auto focuses in as little as 0.18 seconds. The 8MP front-camera provides custom features that are a selfie-lovers delight.
“Honor has a great opportunity to disrupt the U.S. smartphone market with premium unlocked devices at unbelievably low prices,” said Jean Baptiste Su, vice-president and principal analyst at Atherton Research. “An additional benefit of being an online-first brand is that Honor can quickly react to the changes and trends of its online user community and release limited editions of its smartphones – just like the Honor 7X Red for Valentine’s day – which is similar to what fast fashion brands such as Zara do in the apparel market.”
