Huawei's Honor 7X India launch: Check out specs, price and features

Huawei sub-brand Honor continues to rollout noteworthy handsets don't break the bank, and now they are launching their recently announced Honor 7X in a new market.

It's even more impressive that the Honor View 10 is priced at a very affordable £449.99 (for comparison, the Mate 10 Pro is priced at £699). The Honor 7X is set to continue that tradition, and it's nearly unbelievable that Huawei can offer a device like this at the specified price tag. So it's just a flat piece of metal on the back.

These AI-based features on the Honor View 10 include Facial Unlock technology, which is said to support payment-level authentication, and unlock in 400ms.

In addition, you are not tied to any particular carrier, and are free to jump from carrier to carrier if you choose. However, you can purchase the smartphone using 24-month special financing direct from Apple.

Honor View 10 is equipped with a high-definition 16MP + 20MP dual-lens camera with F/1.8 wide aperture and 2-in-1 PDAF automatic focusing, enabling users to take professional photos.

Now we haven't spent a ton of time with the camera yet on the Honor 7X, but it does appear to be pretty good. The Honor 9i has a single variant that is priced at Rs. 17999, taking it to another range, but it has the advantage of a great selfie camera combination.

While the Honor View 10 joins the growing list of new phones launching with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, the Honor 7x has to settle for Android 7.1 Nougat. It gets a 6-inch (2160 x 1080 pixels) Full HD+ display with 18:9 aspect ratio. The combination of two lenses enables depth-of-field/bokeh effects along with other nifty effects. Once again, it was deja vu in today's launch presentation, where Honor president George Zhao talked up the chip's AI motion detection features, which it's claimed can reduce motion blur with moving subjects. Since the company isn't shy about making comparisons to the $499 OnePlus 5T, we expect the View 10 to launch at a competitive price. It includes a feature to stop it working when your eyes are closed, so no one can open your phone in your sleep.

Cougars face Michigan State in Holiday Bowl
The response came one day after Mark Dantonio was asked about the bowl destinations for his Spartans and the Wolverines. A win in the Holiday Bowl over WSU could give Dantonio his 100 career win at Michigan State (he's now 99-45).

But if the global pricing remains competitive, the Honor View 10 loooks certain to give the competition a run for its money. On the front, the device sports an 8MP secondary camera.

The price is what makes these phones entirely different. Honor is calling the Honor 7X the "best budget smartphone of 2018", while it is a bit pre-mature for us to agree with Honor there, it is definitely a contender for that title. In the United Kingdom it's priced at £449, in the euozone it's €499.

Apple Pay Cash service now activated for most users
Last week was a really bad week for Apple , with both iOS and macOS falling victim to high profile bugs. You're better off using a debit card to avoid the standard 3% fee you'll pay with a credit card.
