Metal-made Huawei Honor 7 could be launched in June
It looks like Huawei's Honor 6 and Honor 6 Plus will soon get successors which might (unsurprisingly) be called Honor 7 and Honor 7 Plus.

According to Chinese website Mobile-dad, the Honor 7 will be released starting late June. A model with 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory should be available for around $320 (1,999 CNY), while a more premium variant, with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage space, is expected to cost around $435 (2.699 CNY). The latter might be available starting early July.

Reportedly, the Honor 7 is made out of metal, runs Android Lollipop, and sports a 5-inch 1080p display. The handset may also feature a fingerprint scanner, a 13 MP rear camera with OIS, an octa-core Kirin 935 processor, and a 3280 mAh battery.

As for the Huawei Honor 7 Plus, this could have a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a Kirin 950 processor, and a dual-lens rear camera. The handset might not be launched before the fourth quarter of the year.

While there are several photos that allegedly show the Huawei Honor 7 and Honor 7 Plus (see below), for now we can't confirm their authenticity.

The honor 7 is going to be better than the p8 and cost less.

On quality of build & camera, the P8 would remain slightly better than Honor 7.

4gb Ram, why not also give the option for 6gb Ram. Also a better advanced CPU and GPU.

I recently got an iPhone 5. Yes, it is a 2012 phone but it is really slick. Design is good and iOS 8 is a beauty on it.

I like the design of the ip5s more than the ip6. Its not slick, it would've been lick if it was rectangular, like the Z1 or Lumia 925.

Yeah, I agree with you. I tried the iPhone 6 Plus and it felt like as if you get the feeling of fear of dropping it. And the texture of the aluminum feels somewhat inferior to the aluminum found on the 6 Plus.

I mean the aluminum on the 6 Plus feels inferior to the one found on the 5

honor 7 should have kirin 940 minimum and kirin 950 for the plus model. Pls keep plus model the same size, you guys already got a flagship phablet.
