Huawei’s Honor 7i is the weirdest selfie smartphone we’ve seen yet

Huawei Honor 7i : Now Available Only In Huawei Authorized Dealer Idris Electronics Raipur


Huawei promised it would reveal the unusual Honor 7i smartphone near the end of August, and here it is. Rather than featuring a sliding camera module as was speculated, Huawei has taken a page from Oppo’s book, and the rear camera on the Honor 7i — or the Honor Glory 7i, according to the Chinese website — flips over to become the front facing selfie camera. This also means it can be positioned to take photos from otherwise awkward perspectives.

Produced by Sony, the 13-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash has an f/2.0 aperture and a 28mm wide-angle lens, plus it’s covered in sapphire crystal to keep it scratch-free. Flip it over, and the camera adapts for selfie use, with not only auto face recognition and auto smile shutter, but also the ability to use the fingerprint sensor to snap your photo — a great way to stop any last second camera shake.

The fingerprint sensor isn’t fitted to the rear or the home button, but to the side of the Honor 7i, a placement we’ve never seen before, but makes good sense. In addition to unlocking the phone and activating the shutter, the sensor can lock files away safely, be configured to allow multiple users, and used to secure apps.

A 5.2-inch, 1080p screen is mounted in the metal chassis, and the thin bezels give it an impressive 79.8-percent screen-to-body ratio. An octa-core Snapdragon 616 processor with 2GB of RAM should prove plenty powerful enough, and there’s 32GB of internal storage memory, plus a MicroSD card slot too. Other features include 4G LTE, a 3100mAh battery, and Android 5.1 with Huawei’s own EMUI 3.1 skin over the top.
