Huawei Honor 7 now available to order globally for under $500
While the Honor 7 isn't officially available outside of China, customers around the world can now get it thanks to retailer OppoMart (which usually sells many China-made devices). Of course, the handset is more expensive at OppoMart than it would be if you'd buy it directly from China, costing $429, plus about $20 for shipping, depending on exactly where you're based.
The Huawei Honor 7 that can be ordered from OppoMart only supports LTE band 1 and band 3, which means it is compatible with LTE networks in some European and Asian countries, but not in North America. That aside, the smartphone's features include a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a 64-bit octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 935 processor clocked at 2.2 GHz, 3 GB of RAM, microSD card support, a 3100 mAh battery, and Android Lollipop. The new Honor also has a fingerprint scanner, a 20 MP rear camera with phase detection auto focus, and an 8 MP front-facing camera.
Later this year, the Honor 7 should be officially released in Europe. Huawei didn't say if it's also planning to sell the device in North America, but we'll let you know when we find out.
