9 million Huawei Honor 7 smartphones have been pre-ordered in one week

9 million Huawei Honor 7 smartphones have been pre-ordered in one week
Officially announced at the end of June, the Honor 7 could become one of Huawei's most successful smartphones to date. The company today said that it received 9 million pre-orders for the Honor 7 in one week in China. According to Huawei, this is the first time when a Honor smartphone attracts so many customers in such a short time.

Chinese customers can order a Huawei Honor 7 for as low as $322 (16 GB model), or for about $400 if they want the 64 GB model. The new device runs Android Lollipop (with Huawei's Emotion 3.1 UI on top), and is made out of aluminum, being the flagship of the Honor series.

The Honor 7 sports a 5.2-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, and is powered by a 64-bit octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 935 processor (the same that's found inside the Huawei P8max). The handset also features LTE, a fingerprint sensor, a 20 MP rear camera with Phase Detection auto focus, an 8 MP front-facing camera, 3 GB of RAM, and a 3100 mAh battery.

Huawei hopes that, later this year, the Honor 7 "will see a great response from users in Europe, too." The company didn't say if it's planning to launch the new Honor in North America, but we'll let you know as soon as we hear something about this.

Not best SOC and not good GPU. It got the best camera though. But at that price, very good phone. I wish the phone would have came up with Kirin 940/950.

Well, we can't say that unless there are reviews that will prove you right.

Huawei P8 uses it and GPU is pretty slow indeed plus it's not very efficient.

Best camera sensor, not exactly image processing. Sample pictures are not very appealing.

Looking at that price, specs, and design. I can see why Samsung has a hard time against Xiaomi and Huawei. I can easily get 2 of these Honor 7 phones for almost the price of a Galaxy S6.

Dear PA! It is time to rearrange the brands here http://www.phonearena.com/phones/manufacturers I guess some "new" brands fit more to "most popular" than some old... What do you think guys?

I agree. Top 10 smartphone brand should be on top (Xiaomi, lenovo/motorola/zuk, huawei, zte) should go along with apple, samsung, lg, etc. new/intresting & rising brand should be on second row oneplus, asus, google, etc Microsoft & Blackberry is not top 10 again should go to third group.
