Going with a aluminum alloy finish, the Honor 7 also sports a 360-degree fingerprint sensor which can be accessed at any possible angle, claims Huawei. All the rage on new smartphones, your fingerprint can now be used for purchases and payments and also for added security with apps.

The Honor 7 sports a 5.2-inch 1080p Full HD IPS LCD display. It runs a 64-bit octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 935 CPU clocked at 2.2 GHz with 3 GB RAM. It is available with 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB ROM options but only the 16 GB version will be available in India for now. They do give you the option to upgrade to 128 GB via microSD card though.

The front camera is a 20 Megapixel (Sony’s IMX230 sensor, f/2.0 aperture, 6P lens) that comes with dual-tone LED flash, Phase Detection auto focus and the lens is covered with sapphire glass protection. For the front, there is an 8 Megapixel selfie-snapper with a 26 mm wide-angle lens. The device runs on Android 5.0.2 Lollipop with Huawei’s Emotion 3.1 UI that comes with a number of new features to make it more productive and user friendly.

Honor 7 supports a single SIM with 4G support in India. Huawei claims the 3100 mAh battery present on this device is capable of fast and reverse charging and can offer 1 hour backup in five minutes of charging. However, the Fast charger is not included in the box and will have to be purchased separately.

Huawei have partnered with online retailer Flipkart to sell the phone in India. Available in Mystery Gray and Fantasy Silver, the 16 GB Honor 7 is priced at INR 22,999 and will be up for purchase from the 15th of October.

Along with the flagship device, Huawei launched its first wearable in India named the Honor Band Z1.
