With Meizu launching its own flagship which is MX5 today, Huawei has also choose this lucky day to launched their next smartphone in Honor series, the Honor 7 (coincidence? May be). Both firms are based in China and it’s not surprising seeing them launched their device same day at roughly same time. Seems like our prediction earlier is true, ofcourse, second-quarter of 2015 ends today.
The Huawei Honor 7 as announced comes in two storage variants, splitted in different models. The 16GB version with 3G-only is priced at $322 USD, 16GB version with LTE at $355 USD, while the 64GB version with LTE support is priced at $400 USD, all versions storage are expandable via MicroSD card. The smartphone will first go on sale in China before it rollout globally while the exact day it will start shipping is not mentioned.
