Honor has just presented a brand new smartphone: the Honor X7, which will be available from May 16 in France at a price of 219 euros. A classic technical sheet at the rendezvous, but the recipe should work.

This phone runs on Magic UI 4.2, an operating system based on Android 11. However, we can hope for an update to Android 12. Note that this phone is not 5G compatible.

A 6.74-inch display with a 90Hz refresh rate

Note to big screen lovers, you’ll be served: the Honor X7 has a platter ready for you full view 6.74 inch LCD. This screen can display 16.7 million colors but comes with TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light certification to protect your eyes. Honor goes up to 90 Hz in this price range and is still part of the modern age. But on the other hand, the resolution is only 1600 x 720 pixels.

The associated battery

In its press release, Honor focuses precisely on the battery of its new entry-level smartphone, as it will have a capacity of 5,000 mAh. In “practice”, the brand announces 20 hours of video streaming and 49 hours of calls.

On the charging side, the Honor X7 will be equipped with the SuperCharge of the brand with a power of 22.5 W.

A Snapdragon 680 for the Honor X7

On the hardware side, inside the Honor X7 we find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor, the same one we find in the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11. It is engraved in 6 nm and has eight cores. For the GPU we find a chip Adreno 610. On the RAM side we have 4 GB, but Honor indicates that it can be expanded by an additional 2 GB with Honor Ram Turbo technology, by inserting part of the flash memory into the ROM is moved. This Honor smartphone has 128 GB of memory, which can be expanded by up to 512 GB with a micro SD card.

To unlock the screen, we are entitled to a fingerprint sensor located on the power button.

Four sensors on the back, but two 2MP sensors

What we immediately see when looking at the phone are the four sensors on the back: a priori something to dream about. These sensors include:

  • The main sensor with 48 MP f/1.8
  • A wide angle of 5 Mpx f/2.2
  • A 2 Mpx f/2.4 macro sensor
  • A 2MP f/2.4 bokeh detection sensor

If we refer to what we saw on the Redmi Note 11, the last two sensors will probably not be very good. The main sensor offers up to 8x digital zoom; its maximum resolution is 8,000 x 6,000 pixels.

On the front of the Honor X7 there is an 8-megapixel sensor with an f/2.0 aperture and an image resolution of up to 3264 x 2448 pixels.
