Today, Honor has launched a new entry-level smartphone in India, called the Honor 7S. The device will be competing with the Xiaomi Redmi 6A which will be launching tomorrow in India.
As far as specifications are concerned, the device comes with basic specs and misses out the fingerprint sensor and Dual 4G functionality.
The Honor 7S comes with a polycarbonate unibody design and sports a 5.45-inch Full View display with HD+ (1440 x 720 pixels) resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, it comes powered by the MediaTek MT6739 quad-core processor clocked at 1.5Ghz and coupled with PowerVR GE8100 GPU. The device comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage with a dedicated MicroSD card slot for further expansion of storage.
Coming to the cameras, there is a single 13MP camera on the rear and a 5MP selfie camera on the front. Both the cameras on the Honor 7S are accompanied by a LED flash.
It runs on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box with EMUI 8.1 skin laid on top. The device also supports dual SIM dual standby but lacks dual VoLTE support. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 3.5mm audio jack, and MicroUSB 2.0 port.
It comes in Blue color and will be exclusively sold via Flipkart starting September 14th. Talking about the pricing, the Honor 7S will be costing Rs 6,999 in India.
So it’s a basic type of device with some basic specs but it misses out two important features and that are surely going to present on the upcoming Mi6A. In our view Honor 7S will face a very tough competition in the market.
