Fingerprint scanner for Huawei Honor 7 confirmed by TENAA

Fingerprint scanner for Huawei Honor 7 confirmed by TENAA
Back in April, we passed along leaked images of the Huawei Honor 7 that showed the handset carrying a rear mounted fingerprint scanner. Confirmation of the scanner's existence came from the phone's recent certification by TENAA. The Chinese agency managed to release its usual low-res photos, and these pictures taken of the Honor 7 match perfectly with the leaked images we alluded to earlier, fingerprint scanner and all.

Besides the scanner, TENAA's photos confirm a metal build for the Huawei Honor 7. While not much information about the unit was released, the agency did say that the handset will support TD-LTE, FDD-LTE, TD-SCDMA, WCDMA, CDMA2000, CDMA 1X and GSM connectivity.

Based on some earlier leaks, there should be two variants of the phone. Both will feature a 5-inch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution, and both will be powered by the home grown Kirin 935 chipset. The two versions of the Honor 7 will each feature a 13MP rear camera and a 3280mAh battery. The standard model will come with 3GB of RAM and include 16GB of native storage. The premium version will feature 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage.

Huawei is holding an event on June 8th which might be related to the Honor 7. Meanwhile, rumors suggest pricing for the phone will start at the equivalent of $322 USD.

Back looks similar to Mate 7 with protruding camera and depressed fingerprint. But speaker seems to be moved from back to bottom. Front looks a bit of honor 6 moving towards Xiaomi. Despite being dual sim, only one slot in image. Need slot of SD card too. Maybe the single slot has some tricks on it to fit all of them.

Fingerprint scanner on the back means the next Nexus, which will probably be made by Huawei will have its scanner on the back. Lol, just throwing that out there. We'll see if it sticks.
