Honor has launched two new budget smartphone offerings in India dubbed the Honor 7A and the Honor 7C. Since these devices previously launched in China a couple of months ago, we were already aware of pretty much all that these handsets had to offer. Even though both of these devices are budget offerings from the Huawei sub-brand, they come with top-tier specs such as edge-to-edge displays, facial recognition for security and a dual-camera setup at the back.
The two Honor 7 Series smartphones launched are very similar to each other, with slight differences in display size and processor. Both smartphones have a dual camera setup at the rear, same front camera resolution, same screen resolution, same battery backup, and both also run EMUI 8.0 based on Android 8.0 Oreo.
Honor 7C Specifications and Features
The Honor 7C boasts better specifications when compared to the Honor 7A. It flaunts a 5.99-inch HD+ display with a resolution of 720 × 1440 pixels. The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC, which works in tandem with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. There could be a 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage option, or Honor could launch a 3GB RAM and 64GB storage variant in India. A microSD card comes into play for storage expansion.
The USP of the Honor 7C is the dual rear camera setup of a 13MP primary camera and a 2MP secondary depth sensor. The phone offers Portrait mode. An 8MP selfie shooter is on the front, which might also offer a Portrait mode. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth and a micro USB port for data transfer & charging. It’s backed by a 3000mAh battery and doesn’t come with fast charging technology. Honor has placed the fingerprint scanner on the rear side within reach of the index finger. It boots Android 8.0 Oreo-based EMUI 8.0 out of the box.
Honor 7A Specifications and Features
The Honor 7A comes with slightly less powerful specifications as compared to the Honor 7C. It rocks a 5.7-inch HD+ display with 720 × 1440 pixels resolution. Internally, it has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset, coupled with 2GB/3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The 2GB RAM variant comes with a single 13MP camera on the back, whereas the 3GB RAM variant comes with dual camera setup of 13MP and 2MP sensors. Both the variants feature an 8MP selfie shooter.
