Huawei has posted a video to YouTube, highlighting the tremendous accomplishments they’ve made with the Honor 7 already. In the video, Huawei has also outlined plans to expand the handset’s availability to get in more consumers’ hands.
The video reveals some interesting statistics: the device had over 2 million pre-orders in just 12 hours, and 9 million pre-orders in its first week. At its core, it’s a testament to how well Chinese manufactures have the potential to do in the market. Most devices out of China are cheap knock-offs, however, Huawei has made a big leap offering such a high-powered device like its Honor 7.
In the video, Huawei has also announced that the Honor 7 will be coming to Europe, which is a sensible move after seeing such great success already.
The device comes in a few variations, however, all of them are sporting a gorgeous 5.2-inch 1080p display, 3GB of RAM, a 20-megapixel rear camera, and fingerprint scanning technology. Its most impressive model features a quad-core 2.2GHz Cortex-A53 CPU and a quad-core 1.5GHz Cortex-A53 processor, powered by a 3,100mAh battery.
The Honor 7 is also running Huawei’s Emotion 3.1 launcher atop of Android Lollipop. Pricing in China starts at CNY 1,999 or $320 USD.
Now there’s only one question: when will Huawei bring this device to the United States to properly compete with big players in the market, such as Samsung and Apple?
