The Huawei Honor 7 may bear a surprisingly hefty price tag


Huawei's Honor series smartphones are known to pack a hardware punch in premium design packaging, all adorned with a midranger price-tag. For example, last year's Honor 6 Plus is powered by an 8-core Huawei-made Kirin 925 SoC and 3 GB of RAM, sports a 5.5-inch, 1080p display, has a 3,600 mAh, and a unique duo camera setup, yet it ended up costing slightly south of $400.

The Honor 7 is about to be unveiled at the end of this month and it too, according to leaks and rumors, is going to tote some pretty impressive hardware specs – the brand-new Kirin 935 SoC, 3 GB / 4 GB of RAM, and 16 GB / 64 GB of native storage. It will have only a single camera, with a 13 MP, OIS-assisted sensor. As per the rumors, this will all be powered by a 3,280 mAh battery. The Honor 7 is also expected to stay off the Quad HD bandwagon and maintain a 1080 x 1920 resolution across its 5” screen.

All in all, impressive specs – something we've come to expect from the Honor series. What comes as a surprise, though, is a reported price-tag, which puts the Honor 7's pricing out of midranger fields and straight into flagship land. Coming from Chinese blog MyDrivers, this rumor says that the new device will cost $599 – that's more than a $200 increase when we compare it to the Honor 6's release price, so we are prone to take this piece of information with a grain of salt.
