The inexpensive Honor 7X will be getting Face Unlock functionality in Q1 2018

Honor announced yesterday the global availability of its View 10 and 7X smartphones, but it also introduced the limited edition Honor 7X Red, which will be available in limited quantities (20,000 units) in select markets.

Honor 7X Review


Huawei’s budget-friendly Honor sub-brand has released the follow-up to the 6X – its fiercely competitive mid-range offering – the Honor 7X. Now sporting a body constructed entirely of aluminum, the 7X steps up the class factor from its partially-plastic predecessor.

Throw in dual cameras and Honor’s typically quick performance, and you have a lean, mean $200 mid-range machine. But is it enough to knock off more recognizable and similarly equipped competitors?
