Honor launches Honor 7A and Honor 7C phones that won’t break the bank
Honor has today launched not one, but two affordable handsets.
The Honor 7A and 7C are each very similar, with the main differentiation being screen size and a slightly different chipset and memory specification.
Overall, the basic premise is the same on both models. A glass-fronted, aluminium chassis design, sporting the FullView display you now come to expect from the brand. That’s an 18:9 ratio display that reduces the top and bottom phone bezels to a minimum.
The Honor 7A comes with a single 13-megapixel rear camera, while the 7C comes with a dual 13+2-megapixel camera on the back. Each have a 8-megapixel camera with LED flash at the front.
Fingerprint security is provided via the sensor on the rear, and face unlock is another feature that gets carried over from other recent Honor models.
Both phones are 7.8mm thick, contain a 3,000mAh battery and use a hybrid SIM-tray, to allow for two SIM cards and a microSD card at the same time.
There’s also Android 8 and EMUI 8, a microUSB charging port (boo!), and an 3.5mm headphone socket (yay!).
The Honor 7A (£140) comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 SoC with Adreno 505 GPU. Internal storage is 16GB and the phone has 2GB of RAM.
The screen is a 5.7-inch HD+ (720×1440 pixel) FullView display.
The Honor 7C (£170) bumps up the specs with a 5.99-inch HD+ FullView display, a faster and more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC with Adreno 506 GPU, plus 32GB storage and 3GB of RAM.
The Honor 7A and 7C sit below the Full HD+ (1080×2160 pixel) Honor 7X (£270), which now gives users a wide choice of phones to suit all budgets.
And let’s not forget the Honor 9 Lite too at £200, which comes with a dual-camera setup on the front and rear.
