Honor 7A: Budget phone with mass appeal


Honor Malaysia today unwrapped its latest smartphone to the Malaysian market – the uber affordable honor 7A. Partnering Shopee, the honor 7A and Phantom Green colourway of the honor 10 will be officially launch during the Super honor Day sale, happening on 8 June 2018. The sale will see discounts and bargains of up to 30 percent on all honor products storewide. It will also be the first time Shopee is running a brand takeover on its mobile app.

The partnership between Shopee and honor has so far been fruitful, kicking off with the honor 9 Lite and flagship honor 10. The honor 10 was a runaway hit and became the fastest-selling smartphone on Shopee after its launch.

Honor 7A

The new honor 7A is a super affordable device targeted at the mass audience. It sports a 5.7-inch 18:9 FullView HD display, and is powered by the Snapdragon 430 chip. It is offered in two configurations: 2GB RAM + 16GB of storage and 3GB RAM + 32GB of storage. The Redmi 5 has some real competition now.

In terms of optics, the honor 7A packs a 13MP rear shooter and an 8MP selfie camera with selfie toning light. Impressive at its price point, the device supports Face Unlock, complementing other authentication methods including Fingerprint Unlock.

There’s a triple slot so you can use two nano-SIMs and a microSD card simultaneously.

With a 3,000mAh battery, it will last an entire day of use. Honor is rather proud of the honor 7A’s speakers which is supported by a high-power SMART PA amp delivering audio as loud as 88dB.

For karaoke lovers, the device offers real-time audio monitoring through earbuds and supports SWS3.1 virtual bass. This lets you replicate a studio recording experience and hear your own voice while you record your singing.

The honor 7A runs EMUI 8.0 based on Android 8.0 Oreo.
