Honor, the Huawei sub-brand, was teasing the Magic 2 earlier this month, and now the device is officially official.
Smartphone manufacturers fell in love with the notch pretty quickly, but some companies are trying to avoid the design decision altogether by going a different way.
Hot on the heels of the Honor 9N launch, Honor has now launched another smartphone in India: the Honor Play. The handset sits a notch above the Honor 9N and will take on the upcoming Mi A2 from Xiaomi.
Huawei’s online-only brand Honor has been on a roll in India. After making inroads into the Indian smartphone market with the likes of the Honor 7X and Honor 9 Lite earlier this year, the company has now unveiled its latest budget wonder: the Honor 9N.
Yesterday, Honor unveiled the Honor 9N in India. Priced around the Rs 12,000 range, the Honor 9N launches in an extremely competitive and crowded smartphone category in the country. Despite Honor’s marketing claims, the Honor 9N is just a tweaked Honor 9 Lite with just a few differences here and there.
Honor today launched the Honor 9N in the crowded mid-range smartphone market of India. The handset sits below the Rs 15,000 price range and competes against Honor’s own offerings like the Honor 7X, Honor 9 Lite, along with the massively popular Redmi Note 5 Pro.
The months and years roll by and Huawei and Honor smartphones evolve… slowly. Each is – genuinely – better than the last, but the glossy mass of glass, the avalanche of Emotion UI and bundled software, the dual camera ideas, much also stays the same. Is there enough new for the Honor 10? Actually yes, mainly through the AI in the camera, though there are quirks, plus a surprisingly low price point.
Attending Honor’s big event this week in London, I couldn’t help shake the feeling that despite their claims about innovation, and a few software tweaks aside, all they really did was copy what has already been done and make it cheaper to end users. From the 2:1 display – understandable – to a new, upcoming front camera projector and ID system, teased for 2018, that’s set to be a carbon copy of what the iPhone X does – complete with Animoji. However, like most of us, I’m all for making things cheaper, and I loved last year’s Honor 6X – really decent specs and capabilities in a premium-feeling phone that cost around £220 or so. Amazing. Can the 7X live up to the same billing?
After a soft launch last month, Huawei today unveiled the Honor 7X at an event in London. The successor to the popular Honor 6x from last year, the Honor 7X continues to feature a dual-camera setup at its rear.
Huawei today unveiled its new mid-range Honor handset, the Honor 7x. The handset is the successor to the Honor 6x from earlier this year and comes with a 5.93-inch 18:9 Full Screen display with FHD+ resolution.
