The Honor 7C has finally launched in China, bringing with it an octa-core Snapdragon 450 chipset and dual rear-facing camera. It is interesting to see that Huawei has chosen not to use its in-house Kirin processor for its latest Honor device like the rest of its family.
As could be expected, the phone comes with an 18:9 FullScreen display but with a rather poor HD+ resolution, which won’t appeal to many out there. There is an option between 3GB or 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of storage when buying the phone.
The dual rear camera setup is 13MP+2MP while an 8MP selfie camera is pinned to the front. The front camera supports face unlock. The Honor 7C have a dedicated dual SIM slot; a fingerprint sensor at the back, and a 3000mAh battery.
