Other Features

Fingerprint sensor

The company has launched the Honor 7C in China. One feature that disguises this device from other Honor smartphones is the chipset. The Honor 7C is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset, like the Redmi 5. In fact, the specifications are almost identical to its Xiaomi counterpart.

This seems like an unusual launch for Honor which is known for using its in-house Kirin chipset. The design of the device resembles the Honor 7X with a metallic unibody and thin bezels. Just like the 7X, the bottom bezel houses the Honor branding while the fingerprint sensor is placed on the back. The primary camera setup, however, resembled the Honor 9 Lite.

Pricing and Availability

The Honor 7C is priced at CNY 899 (Rs 9238) for 3GB RAM and 32GB storage and CNY 1,299 (Rs 13348) for 4GB RAM and 64GB Storage. The smartphone will be available from the 13th of March in Black, Red, Gold and Blue colours. However, as of now, there is no information about the launch of this model in India.

Specifications of Honor 7C

The device has a 5.99 inch HD+ 1440 x 720 px IPS LCD display with a 2.5D curved glass finish. Under the hood, the smartphone has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 Octa-core chipset with 3/4GB RAM and 32/64GB storage. Similarly, the storage is expandable using a micro SD card up to 256GB.

The phone has a dual primary camera setup with a 13MP primary sensor and a 2MP depth sensor. There is an 8MP front-facing camera which. In fact, both the cameras support portrait mode with 1080p video recording capability.

Honor 7C

The Honor 7C runs on Android 8 Oreo with custom EMUI 8 on the top. The smartphone has a fingerprint scanner. Similarly, the device also supports Face Unlock.

Conclusion

The Honor 7C checks all the boxes. In fact, the device outperforms in some aspects like Face Unlock and Dual camera. However, the Redmi 5 is priced at CNY 7,99, which is 100 CNY less than the Honor 7C’s pricing.
