More details of the upcoming Honor 7 have been leaked yet again ahead of its unveiling tomorrow. According to this latest rumour, the Honor 7 will supposedly come in more than one variant with a starting price of 1,999 Chinese yuan, which comes up to about RM1,200. In light of this, the earlier rumour of a US$599 (about RM2,265) price tag could very well be the asking price of the highest-end model.
One of the biggest differences between two supposed variants of the Honor 7 is the construction. The lower-end model will supposedly only have rounded corners and a metal frame, whereas the highest-end variant will boast an all-metal construction. Other than that, the most affordable model will have 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. As the more premium offering, the highest-end model is claimed to come with 4GB of RAM with up to 128GB of internal storage instead.
Interestingly, both variants of the Honor 7 will be powered by a HiSilicon Kirin 940 processor instead of a Kirin 935 chipset as previously rumoured. It is said to be a 1.9GHz hexa-core processor that is built on a 20nm process. Other shared hardware of both models include a 5.2-inch 1920 x 1080 resolution display, a 16MP rear camera with optical image stabilisation, and a 3,280mAh battery. Of course, as these specifications are merely rumours to begin with, it’s best to take them with a pinch of salt.
Regardless, all will be made known once the Honor 7 is unveiled tomorrow. Interestingly, Meizu will also be launching its latest flagship tomorrow, the MX5. More likely than not, this is more than just a coincidence between these two Chinese companies.
