Photo Announcement. Honor X7a - an inexpensive smartphone with a capacious battery for Malaysia

Honor has announced another low-cost smartphone - Honor X7a. At the current time, the device is presented only in Malaysia. But, of course, most likely, it will appear in other countries.

An interesting moment. The Honor X7a is made in the same case as the Honor Play 40 Plus sold in China. Identical screens, batteries. But the sets of cameras and chipsets are different. And generally speaking. Honor Play 40 Plus has support for 5G networks, but our Malaysian does not. So I decide not to consider these two smartphones as close relatives.


Honor Play 40 Plus

About characteristicx.

The chipset is a humble MediaTek Helio G37. We are waiting for a little more than a hundred thousand parrots in AnTuTu. Budget level, nothing more.

6 GB RAM. Permanent memory - 128 GB. Support for memory cards is available.

The screen is rather big, 6.74" (110 cm²). The refresh rate can be increased up to 90 Hz. But the resolution is quite low, only 720x1600 (260 ppi).

The battery is excellent, 6000 mAh. Charging is fast, though not outrageously, like modern flagships. But still, 22.5 W is very, very good.

There are many cameras, but the set is trivial. 8 MP front, 50+5+2+2 MP rear (main)Clear, wide-angle, macro, depth sensor).

In what LTE bands our Honor can work is not reported.

There is no NFC module. There is no gyroscope either. But there is Type-C and dual-band Wi-Fi. The fingerprint scanner is located on the side.

The Honor X7a will cost RM799 (₽13,200, $188) at launch.
