A new Enhanced Edition of the Honor 7 has just been announced, which boasts additional internal memory and Huawei’s Android 6.0 based EMUI 4.0 OS right out of the box. The announcement comes hot on the heels of news that the Honor brand will enter the US market at CES 2016.
The internal memory upgrade sees default storage increase from 16GB to 32GB. There’s also a 128GB microSD card slot on both handsets, if you have a large media collection. The phone also features fast charging and a 9 volt 2 amp charger included in the box, and has a shortcut smart key that be customized with various functions. There is also a voice-activated assistant included with the Enhanced Edition, which is powered by Baidu and Huawei.
Other than that, the internal hardware remains the same. The Honor 7 Enhanced Edition features a 5.2-inch 1080p display, octa-core Kirin 935 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 20 megapixel camera based on a Sony IMX230 sensor and an 8 megapixel front facing camera. The phone also comes with a 3,100mAh battery, 4G compatibility, and a fingerprint scanner on the back.
The Honor 7 Enhanced Edition is already available in China with a price tag set at 1999 Yuan (approximately $310), while the regular model has seen its price drop to 1799 Yuan ($278). We will hopefully hear additional details about a wider roll out in the near future, possibly at CES 2016 in January.
