Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has launched the Honor 7X in India at a starting price of Rs 12,999. Honor’s London event also saw the global launch of the AI centric Honor V10 which was launched in China a few days ago. While the 7X is set to go on sale in India on December 7, the V10 will be launching in the country on January 8.
Along with the new products, Honor also announced a renewed global expansion strategy at the event. The company plans on becoming a top 3 OEM globally by 2022. Currently, the company sells only 15 per cent of its smartphones globally – a figure it wants to increase to 60 per cent by 2022.

The Honor 7X is the successor to the popular Honor 6X and comes with dual cameras, an edge-to-edge display, an all-metal design and Android 7.0 Nougat with Huawei’s custom EMUI skin on top. The smartphone has an all-metal design and runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with Huawei’s EMUI 5.1 custom skin on top.
Huawei is backing on two features to set the Honor 7X apart from the crowd – the dual camera setup at the rear and the 18:9 display up front. With the Honor 7X, Huawei has embraced the bezel-less trend of 2017 and equipped the smartphone with a 5.9-inch FullHD+ display which flows from one edge to the other.
The dual camera setup at the rear consists of a 16MP primary sensor paired with a secondary 2MP sensor, the sole job of which is the capture of depth data. The 7X comes with a 8MP sensor at the front for selfies. The smartphone is powered by Huawei’s custom Kirin 659 processor paired with 4GB of RAM and a 3340mAh battery.
