Huawei's Honor brand is all set to announce its latest mid-range smartphone - Honor 7C - at a launch event in China. The company posted the official invite for the event that will be held on March 12. The invite reveals that the latest budget phone from Honor, a toned down version of Honor 7X, will feature a dual camera setup, face recognition technology with image beautification, dual SIM support, and a 5.99-inch display. The phone was also spotted on certification website TENAA, late last month.
A report by GizChina has outed the official invite for the Honor 7C launch in Beijing next week. It is claimed that the upcoming smartphone will be priced comparatively to the recently launched Xiaomi Redmi 5, which suggests an expected pricing of around $249.99 (roughly Rs. 16,300). The report states that the smartphone will feature a metal body with a three-stage antenna design. While the invite mentions just a few hints about the phone, a recent TENAA spotting listed most of the Honor 7C's specifications.
The smartphone is expected to sport a 5.99-inch HD+ (720x1440 pixels) display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, a 1.8GHz octa-core processor, 3GB/ 4GB of RAM, a dual camera rear shooter (20-megapixel + 13-megapixel), and a front camera with an 8-megapixel sensor. Additionally, the phone is also said to have a 2900mAh battery, and run Android Oreo out-of-the-box.
Connectivity options on the Honor 7C are suggested to include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 4.1, and GPS. Dimensions of the upcoming phone have been listed as 158.3x76.7x7.8mm and weight will be 164 grams. Further, we can expect the Honor 7C to be available in Black, Gold, and Blue colour options.
