Huawei launches Honor 7A with Snapdragon 430 and Face Unlock feature

Now the firm is back at it again, giving birth to a new handset dubbed the Honor 7A. The display size itself is 5.7 inches and since Huawei needed to keep the pricing of the smartphone extremely low, it could not go for an OLED panel.

Processor: Honor 7A is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC, coupled with 2GB/ 3GB of RAM and Adreno 505 GPU. It offers 2GB/ 3GB RAM with 32GB of internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 256GB via microSD card.

Camera: Honor 7A comes with dual camera set up with its 3GB RAM variant. Up front, there is an 8MP selfie camera with LED flash and f/2.0 aperture. The device runs on Android 8.0 Oreo-based EMUI 8.0 out of the box. Along with that, the Honor 7A has a fingerprint sensor on the back along with a 3000 mAh non-removable battery capacity. While the base model is priced at CNY 799, the other variant is priced at CNY 999. The sale starts from April 3 i.e. from today in China. Huawei shipped 153 million smartphones (including its sub-brand Honor) in 2017, reporting revenue of 237.2 billion yuan ($36.4 billion), an increase of 31.9 per cent Year-on-Year (YoY).

As mentioned before, Honor 7A is a cheaper, downgraded version of the Honor 7X, so let's see how it compares with its bigger sibling. It comes in Magic Night Black, Platinum Gold and Aurora Blue colors. It is packed with 3000mAh battery. It features a 5.7-inches TFT LCD HD+ screen with a resolution of 720 x 1440 as we mentioned earlier. If that isn't to your liking, you will also be able to use a more traditional means of unlocking the phone, with the rear fingerprint reader. The 2GB RAM variant of Honor 7A smartphone has a single camera with a 13MP CMOS sensor. It also comes with triple card slot for adding two SIM cards and one MicroSD card. The Honor 7A will be available to buy from tomorrow at JD.com, TMALL, and the Huawei Mall. In terms of connectivity options, the Honor 7A includes Micro-USB, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with hotspot, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS, GLONASS, and 3.5mm headphone jack.
