Huawei Honor 7X hits US shores as promised for $199

In November, Huawei announced Honor 7X, the successor of last year’s widely successful Honor 6X. Despite giving us information on the latest Honor creation, the company didn’t confirm plans to release the phone in the US territory, that is until today.

If you’re a US resident shopping for a new Android phone but are a bit strapped for cash, you’re in luck — Huawei’s latest incarnation of its Honor series, the Honor 7X, looks to offer a solid Android experience all around and won’t break the bank. Priced competitively at just $199, this budget offering from Huawei is one of the company’s first to travel to America, poised to blow other phone makers out of the mid-range category.

As a recap, here are some of the Honor 7X’s specifications beginning with the phone’s screen.

  • 5.93-inch IPS LCD with 2160 x 1080 pixel resolution (18:9 ratio)
  • Octa-core Hi Silicon Kirin 659 processor
  • Mali-T830-MP2 GPU
  • 3GB or 4GB RAM
  • 32GB or 64GB of storage (with corresponding RAM amount 32GB/3GB, 64GB/4GB)
  • Dual rear camera (16MP + 2MP sensors), single front camera (8MP)
  • 3,340 mAh battery
  • Android 7.1.1 Nougat, EMUI 8.0

As you can see, Honor 7 has a decent spec sheet for coming in at less than $200. It ticks a lot of boxes while keeping the price point low. While I personally have not had the chance to demo it, just looking at its price-to-performance ratio is impressive already, and I’m pretty sure a good number of people will agree that they are getting plenty of bang for their buck with this one. I only wish it shipped with Android 8.0 Oreo instead.

Let’s hope more Huawei arrivals continue to make way to the states, as the company desires. For now though, if you’re looking for a capable mid-ranger on a limited budget, the Honor 7X should definitely be on your shopping list this holiday season.
