Honor 7i

Huawei has announced its latest Honor flagship – the honor 7i, the first to feature a rotating-camera and fingerprint sensor on the side. Making its debut China-first, the honor 7i is also first with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 chipset.

Huawei has really upped the ante in terms of design and material build of late. The Honor, while positioned as a premium mid-range brand is getting uncomfortably close to its more expensive sibling – the main Huawei brand i.e. Huawei P8 and Mate 7. In fact, in terms of craftsmanship and hardware specs, it’s getting more indistinguishable. Which is a win for consumers, seeing that Honor devices cost less than the P or Mate series.

The honor 7i’s claim to fame is the new rotating camera module that lets you pluck it out from the back to become a front-facing unit for selfies. OPPO eat your heart out. It doesn’t quite work exactly like OPPO N3, but of similar concept.

The camera uses a Sony-sourced 13MP BSI sensor with a 28mm f/2.0 lens. The lens is made from sapphire crystal ensuring durability and scratch-free use. For better colour balance, low-light performance, details and less noise, the camera is supported with v3.0 of its Image Processing Engine.

The rotating mechanism is claimed to be robust, and Huawei says will last you two years if you flip it on average of 132 times a day. That’s over 96,000 flips in its lifespan. And that’s way too many selfies for you to take, my friends.

Honor 7iA Huawei-first is the fingerprint sensor on the side of the device. It’s claimed to be the smallest sensor on any phone and you can unlock the device using your thumb, or even take photos.

Like the honor 6 Plus, the honor 7i body is sandwiched with glass, encased in a 6061 aluminium frame that’s claimed to deliver better heat dissipation. It gets a 5.2-inch Full HD IPS display (423PPI) that has a 79.8% screen-to-body ratio, and sports the latest oct-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 chip. It comes with either 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 16GB of storage or 3GB LPDDR3 RAM and 32GB of internal storage; supports microSD expansion.

Powering it for a full-day is a 3,100mAh battery. It is a dual-SIM, dual-LTE device, integrated with an intelligent dual-antenna switch.

The honor 7i runs Android 5.1 Lollipop with Huawei’s UI layer EMUI 3.1 on top.
