Huawei has finally made the Honor 7 official at a dedicated press event in Beijing.

It’s the company’s brand new flagship device that sits just below competing devices like the Samsung Galaxy S6 and LG G4. The only difference is that it costs about £250 less. The company also unveiled two accessories to accommodate the launch: an obligatory smart wearable device called the Honor Band Zero and a Bluetooth headset called the Honor Whistle.

Big specs for a small price

The Honor 7 boasts some fantastic specifications for the price, making it great value for money. It sports an all-metal body, putting it in line with the HTC One series. Its processor is the new octa-core Kirin 935 processor, which competes fairly well with the high-end Snapdragon chips. It also has a 5.2-inch display, 3 gigabytes of RAM and a large 3,100 mAh battery. The rear camera uses a 20-megapixel Sony sensor and a sapphire lens which improves scratch resistance and clarity, while the 8-megapixel front-facing camera offers plenty for selife enthusiasts. Like Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy S smartphones, it also comes with a fingerprint sensor.

Much like the Honor 6 and 6+, this device will likely be online only. That means you shouldn’t expect to see it in the shops anytime soon.
