Rumor: Huawei Honor 7 to have multiple versions; both will be unveiled on June 30th
The Huawei Honor 7 has been the subject of quite a few rumors recently. But all of this is about to end on June 30th when the handset is expected to officially be unveiled. With the clock running down toward Wednesday's new product announcement, the rumor mill has been working overtime. The talk now revolves around a pair of different variants of the phone

The low end of the Huawei Honor 7 will feature rounded corners and a metal frame. The high-end variant will have an all metal build according to the latest buzz around the water cooler. One difference between the two models, which we have already mentioned to you, is that the low-end Honor 7 will come with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The pricier model will carry 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

Both versions will be equipped with a 5.2-inch screen featuring a 1080 x 1920 resolution, and the pair will each feature the home-grown Kirin 940 SoC. This chipset is rumored to come with four Cortex A-53 cores, two Cortex A-72 cores and two Cortex A-57 cores. To prevent things from getting too hot, the cores will have a clock speed of 1.9GHz. The units will also share a 16MP rear camera which does come with OIS. And a 3280mAh battery will keep the lights on in both variants of the phone. A fingerprint scanner appears to be placed on the back of the Honor 7, although it isn't clear if that will be seen on the low and high-end variants of the device.

The basic model of the Huawei Honor 7 is rumored to be priced at the equivalent of $322 USD. If you've been following our coverage of the Huawei Honor 7 from the beginning, you should be getting excited. We are just days away from learning everything about the Huawei Honor 7.

Great specs and battery for a $322 phone. If the metal variant will have a good price, then I will forget lenovo vibe shot and huawei p8.

If the spec given here is true, P8 sales will be hampered by Honor 7.

Well, Honor 6 has also better specs than P7 last year, so I guess they don't see any problems with it. Besides, the Honor brand (only sold online I believe) is still unknown to a lot of "normal" consumers. The general consumers don't know that the Honor brand is from Huawei.
