Huawei is launching its new Honor 7 high mid-range smartphone today and it will arrive in three different variations. The premium looking device will be available in China this summer and consumers can choose between three versions, with connectivity and storage options defining each variant.Before getting into the shared specs, we will discuss the difference between the three Honor 7 models. Firstly there is the entry level 16GB model comes with LTE connectivity, then there is a version with the same storage but also Dual SIM-standby LTE, and lastly a flagship worthy model with 64GB of on board storage. The things all devices share in common make any version of the Honor 7 a compelling mid-range choice. Firstly, it looks stunning and the aluminum alloy body only lends to the very premium aesthetics of the handset. Under the hood the specs are excellent, and include a 5.2-inch 1080p Full HD screen with a pixel density of 423ppi. Huawei's own 64-bit Kirin 935 chipset runs the shot; that?s the one that is clocked at 2.2 GHz maximums for four Cortex-A53 cores, and 1.5 GHz for the other A53 quartet. The chipset has been coupled with 3GB of RAM, while there micro SD card slot to expand memory, and a 3100 mAh juicer that Huawei will fully charge (zero to 100%) in one hour and twenty five minutes. There is also a fingerprint sensor included just under the camera module on the rear. The cameras on the Honor 7 are very impressive. Around the back the main lens is 20 megapixel effort that comes with such goodies as Phase Detection Auto Focus, F2.0 aperture, 6-lens module, and sapphire glass. The front facer continues the impressive trend, an 8 megapixel shooter with wide-angle lens. A splendid package we say, the Huawei Honor 7 will arrive with Android Lollipop out of the box with the company's own Emotion UI 3.1 running over the top. Last but certainly not least is the price, and this is arguably the most impressive part. The Honor 7 will $322 for the 16GB model, $355 for the Dual SIM version, and $400 for the 64GB variant.
