After being teased the past couple of weeks, the honor 7X is officially launched in Malaysia today. The successor to the honor 6X boasts a big “Full View” display packed into a compact body. The affordable mid-ranger hits retail stores starting 22 December 2017 for MYR1,099. But, here’s a little surprise. For one hour o 18 December, you’ll be able to own one for just MYR999.
The honor 7X features 5.93-inch “Full View” Full HD+ 18:9 display, a first for the honor line-up of devices. In terms of design and build, it’s pretty close to its cousin—the Huawei nova 2i.
It’s got a superfast fingerprint sensor mounted on the back, which unlocks in just 0.25s.
Under the hood, the honor 7X is far from shabby. It rocks an octa-core 16nm Kirin 659 processor with a Mali T830-MP2 GPU, mated to 4GB of RAM and ample 64GB of onboard storage.
It packs a dual-lens 16MP + 2MP rear shooter with PDAF and Portrait mode. Honor says the 7X offers ultra-fast focus time as well as a “bokehlicious” Portrait Mode. The front gets a capable 8MP shooter with Portrait Mode.
The device gets a large 3,340mAh battery that charges up via a conventional micro-USB port.
It runs EMUI 5.1 based on Android 7.0 Nougat.
The honor 7X is available in Blue, Gold and Black.
Pricing and availability
The honor 7X officially retails at MYR1,099. As mentioned, honor is offering a one-hour flash sale on 18 December 2017, at 3-4PM, where you’ll be able to purchase the device for just MYR999. This is available exclusively on Vmall.my and Lazada.
Buyers will also receive a limited edition free case from IGG (IGotGames).
