A post on Chinese social network Weibo gave as a glimpse of Huawei Honor 7i, a handset that comes with a quirky unique feature and is reported to be launching August 20th. Overall the device will be solidly spec'd, while its design sticks closely to what we would call "standard candy bar". However, this handset will have one aesthetic feature that makes it stand out... literally.The camera module is on a slider that locks into the body of the phone. The rear camera faces back, but the front facer is hidden on the front side of the slider. If you want to take a selfie, the slider moves up and reveals the front facing lens and LED flash. Firstly, we guess the slider will be automatic, but either way there is one big question regarding this sliding camera... why? Pointless gimmick aside, the Honor 7i features a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage, although a TENAA leak suggested 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage, meaning two versions may be launching.
