Huawei sub-brand, Honor, in a quiet move, unveiled a new entry-level smartphone – Honor 7S in Pakistan, which is quite unlike the huge announcements made for Honor 7A and 7C. Most of the phone’s specifications and features appear to be similar to another recently released smartphone – Honor Play 7. The Honor 7S features an 18:9 display, MediaTek MT6739 SoC and LED selfie light.
The smartphone is powered by a 3020mAh battery which comes with smart management features and will run on Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box with Honor’s EMUI 8.1 skin. The smartphone will also feature a louder speaker which according to the company will provide a better listening experience in noisy environments and a 3.5mm audio jack.
The Honor 7S sports a 5.45-inch FullView HD+ 2.5D curved glass display with 720×1440 pixels resolution. The display features an eye protection mode that covers the display with a blue light filter for easy readability. Under the hood is a quad-core MediaTek MT6739 chipset with PowerVR Rogue GE8100 GPU, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage which is expandable to 256GB through the microSD card. In the camera section, the smartphone features a single 13MP rear shooter with PDAF and LED flash. A 5MP selfie camera can be spotted at the front. The phone comes with face unlock capability but it lacks a fingerprint scanner.The Honor 7S which exclusive to Pakistan, for now, is available at a price of PKR 14,499 (~N45,000). It comes in three different colour options – Black, Blue and Champagne Gold. The phone is also available on Honor global website, HiHonor.com.
Honor 7A and Honor 7C were released earlier this month, exclusive to India. The Honor 7A was made available only on Flipkart stores and the Honor 7C is exclusive to Amazon India. Like Honor 7S, both phones are also available on HiHonor.com.
