The Huawei sub-brand, Honor has announced the availability of its entry-level smartphones – Honor 7A and 7C – in the Indian market, today. This is coming after the Chinese company mid-range flagship – Honor 10 – was also launched in the same market.
The announcement which was made in partnership with Reliance Jio, revealed that the Honor 7A would be available on Flipkart stores as from May 29, while Honor 7C will make its debut on Amazon two days after Honor 7A.
Honor 7A will be sporting a 5.7-inch display with 720 x 1440 screen resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. This is quite similar to what is found on Honor 7C, except for the display size which is 6-inch. The Honor 7A will run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.
