Honor 7

Unveiled in China last month, the Honor 7 is set to make its way to the UK in August. Honor is holding a press event in London, where it will announce further details regarding the launch of the Honor 7 in the country. Not much is known at this point, other than the fact that the phone will indeed be available in the country as promised.

While last year's offering featured a metallic-looking plastic design, the Honor 7 is clad in aluminum alloy. Specs include a 5.2-inch full-HD display, Huawei's own Kirin 935 SoC with a 64-bit octa-core CPU (four Cortex A53 cores at 2.2GHz with four Cortex A53 at 1.5GHz), Mali-T628 GPU, 3GB RAM, 64GB internal memory, microSD slot, 20MP camera (Sony IMX230 sensor) with phase detection autofocus, 8MP front shooter, LTE, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, GPS/ A-GPS and a 3,100mAh battery.

Software-wise, the Honor 7 features EMUI 3.1 atop Android 5.0. There's also a fingerprint sensor that sits under the rear camera sensor, allowing you to unlock the phone with a single tap.

We'll know more about the Honor 7's UK availability and pricing in August. Based on the specs on offer, who's excited?
