Honor 7X surfaces on Geekbench ahead of launch

Honor 6X

After launching highly successful Honor 6X, the budget-smartphone division of Huawei is gearing up to launch Honor 7X. The alleged smartphone has surfaced on Geekbench and exposes the specifications. Touted as a successor to the Honor 6X, the Honor 7X will be probably equipped with Kirin 659 processor and 4GB RAM. Moreover, the phone is rumored to ship with a 5.5-inch bezel-less display.

With model number HUAWEI BND-AL10, the 16nm-based processor integrated with the upcoming Honor 7X will ship with one processor and 8 cores at a frequency of 1.71GHz. Moreover, the motherboard model is mentioned as BND-AL10.

The capacity of the RAM is mentioned as 3725 MB. It is to be noted that the RAM and storage capacities will be mentioned less than the normal level when it comes to Geekbench specifications.

Regarding the performance, there is not much to cheer about the Honor 7X. While the phone grabs a single-core score of 909, the multi-core score is tagged at a higher level at 3159. We expect that the score to improve when the phone will be made available for release and sale.

We can easily speculate about the camera specifications. The Honor 7X will have dual camera sensors and a front camera similar to that of the current counterpart. There is a possibility for a sharp increase in the sensor capacities.

Even after Google pushing Android Oreo, Honor still has integrated Android 7.0 Nougat. However, the company will likely promise Oreo update. When the company released Honor 6X they had assured of Oreo update and it has reached the handsets of customers. The phone will ship with EMUI 5.1, which is expected to provide enhanced performance.

In all probability, the company will release both 3GB and 4GB variants with 32GB and 64GB storage capacities. We will continue to keep track of the developments. Stay tuned with NetAns.
