On April 2nd, Huawei Honor held a small product launch at its offline experience store in Suzhou. It officially released the new Honor 7A with a starting price of only 799 yuan ($127).
Just like the Honor 7C released recently, 7A also uses a 5.7-inch, 18:9 full-screen display with a resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels. It is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor, available in 2GB RAM + 32GB ROM and 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM.
In the camera department, the 3GB/32GB version is equipped with 13MP + 2MP rear-facing dual cameras that support real-time background blur, while the 2GB/32GB version still uses a 13MP single-camera with a 8 MP front lens that has three manual selfie modes.
In addition, Honor 7A also added the face recognition feature, while the 3GB/32GB version is also equipped with the rear fingerprint recognition feature. At the same time, the Honor 7A uses a new generation of intelligent audio chips and highly sensitive speakers to ensure speaker volume. The speaker volume is now 80% higher than the previous 6A generation, which is equivalent to adding an additional speaker. Furthermore, it also supports Huawei’s Histen sound effects which enhances the overall sound performance.
Honor 7A has pre-installed the EMUI 8.0 user interface that is optimized based on the Android 8.0 system. It has built-in 3000mAh batteries, supports Honor series’ exclusive party mode, and uses a triple card slot design that works with all 4G networks. Users can insert dual SIM cards and another removable memory card of up to 256GB at the same time.
Honor 7A comes in three colors: Magic Night Black, Platinum Gold and Aurora Blue. The 2GB/32GB version is priced at 799 yuan ($127) and the 3GB/32GB version with dual cameras and fingerprint recognition is priced at 999 yuan ($159). They are now available for purchase.
