Huawei Honor 7 specifications
Design and Build
Its elegant design at the very first glance will catch your eye. An all-metal unibody design has been provided to the Honor 7 which is major departure from the prior carbon fiber design used in the Honor 6 Plus. In addition to the non-metallic rear cover it has an additional textured strips of metal on the top and the bottom edges, the sides of the phone are also nicely furnished, thus giving the phone a good mix of matte and glossy finish.
Weighing around 157 grams and measuring 8.5mm thick, it is one of its own kind. The rear side has a square-shaped fingerprint scanner on the top, which is just below the 20MP rear camera. The phone has a 5.2-inch full HD display. The bezels at the top and bottom and the sides are thinner as compared to the previous generation of Honor phones.
A Smart Key hardware button is provided on the left-hand side programmed to perform certain tasks on single or double clicks. It has a single nano SIM card slot on its above side. The top has an IR blaster and a 3.5mm audio jack. It provides a volume rocker button on the right-hand side which is the followed by the power/standby button. A microUSB port surrounded by speaker grilles on either side forms the base.
Despite the metallic build it doesn’t slip, moreover there are no sharp edges, although we can feel the volume rocker button, in total, it looks good in hands.
A 5.2-inch full HD display with good sunlight legibility, it comes with an IPS panel ensuring good viewing angles with vibrant colours and sharp text. There is an unsurety whether the phone has a Corning Gorilla Glass protection on top of it, so a little wait and patience would be required till we have more reviews.Huawei Honor 7 specifications
Chipset, RAM, Storage
The Huawei Honor 7 also houses its proprietary Kirin chipset, just like its predecessors. Considering it to be the latest Honor phone, the flagship Kirin 935 SoC has an octa-core processor with one quad-core Cortex A53 cluster clocked at 2.2GHz and the other quad-core Cortex A53 cluster clocked at 1.5GHz supported by Mali T628 MP4 graphics solution. Paired with 3GB RAM, the phone comes in 16GB and 64GB storage variants. You can also expand the storage by adding on a microSD card.
What can be better of having an Android 5.0 Lollipop with the Emotion UI 3.1 user interface on the top. It is no more different than the Emotion UI 3.0, much refinement such as an SOS app, better power management features have ben added. The camera app has been upgraded with few additions and filters .
On the connectivity side, a single nano SIM card slot which supports 4G SIM cards , there is Wi-fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS, Stereo FM radio as well. A standard set of sensors such as an accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity sensor, compass and so on will enhance the connectivity.

Unlike the previous flagship, Honor 7 features a big 20 MP camera on the rear side, while the later featured two 8 MP Cameras on the back side. It is capable of taking high-end pictures even in low light conditions, where most of the devices fail. With the auto-focus and phase-detect, it becomes much easier to take pictures on-the-go.
The camera interface of the Honor 7 is inspired from the previous flagship, in addition, you get two modes, Good Food Mode which increases the quality of food pictures (mainly colors enhancement) and the other one is Light Painting Mode, just like Doodle mode where you can write on captured pictures.
