Huawei released the unique Honor 7i smartphone with a flip-up camera module earlier today. The phone is particularly targeted at the young crowd with powerful camera features. It comes with a 5.2-inch FHD display and Snapdragon 616 underneath with 3GB RAM, 32GB storage and a 3100mAh battery. The camera at the back is of 13MP with f/2.0 large aperture and SLR grade ISP. So, you can expect to take beautiful pictures even in low light.
Now, we take a look at the overall design of the device, which is somewhat similar to Honor 7. But, that’s actually a good thing as the Honor 7i looks extremely well built and premium despite its affordable 1599 Yuan price tag. Take a look at the Honor 7i hands on pictures below, to see the handset in its full glory!
Honor 7i Hands On Pictures:
If not for the flip-up camera, from the front, the Honor 7i and the Honor 7 look identical. The body is quite thin at 7.8mm, even thinner than Honor 7’s 8.5mm profile. It weighs just about 160 grams.
The camera can be flipped up to act as the front facing shooter. As you can see, even the dual LED flash comes on top.
The unique grip pattern continues from the back to the front.
Down below, you can see the fingerprint sensor. Its a side mounted sensor instead of a traditional rear placed one that we saw on the Honor 7. The fingerprint recognition speed is said to be just 0.5 seconds.
As you can see below, the pattern is particularly visible on the Champagne Gold version.
Although you can see two speaker grills at the bottom, they are not dual speakers. [source]
