Curves of the Honor 7 teased in a sneaky photo


Honor Malaysia posted yesterday showing us a glimpse of something in the works on their Facebook page. Speculators have come to a conclusion that it’s definitely an Honor 7 coming our way. A device that sold out (200,000 units) in just 2 minutes in China, it could possibly give other mid-range competitors a good fight locally.

Making an appearance in SIRIM Malaysia’s database as PLK-L01 as of yesterday, further fuels that the device will arrive soon enough, with no tentative date that we can tell for now. As a rough indication for European markets, there has been rumours that the device will make an appearance in September during IFA 2015.


Power-packed for its price the Honor 7 features a 5.2-inch 1080p Full HD display and retails (China market) in 3 versions. The lowest – 16GB internal storage and LTE, middle option – 16GB and dual-SIM LTE and the top end model – 64GB and the same dual-SIM LTE. No mention if these will be the same variants that make it to Malaysia but it’ll be a rough indication what to expect.

Aside from all the cellular and internal memory differences, all 3 share a Kirin 935 processor that has 8 cores: 4 high powered running at 2.2GHz and 4 efficient cores clocked at 1.5GHz. While, those on a strict budget can opt for the more affordable 16GB dual-SIM LTE model but make use of the MicroSD slot that is available on all variants.

Camera bugs who emphasise on pixels will be pleased with a 20-megapixel Sony sensor protruding out of the back of the smart phone, while a decent 8-megapixel shutter makes up the front. The Honor 7 will also come with a fingerprint scanner for biometric security functionality. 3GB of RAM gives the device ample memory to handle multitasking on the distinctive EMUI 3.1 overlay of Android 5.0 Lollipop. To cap off, juicing all these internals will be a 3100mAh battery that is non-removable.
