In the search for the first position in the market worldwide, the children of Huawei they have only that final push that the Huawei P20 range will look for this year, although the truth is that 2018 is being a pretty prolific exercise both for the Chinese giant and its brand spin-off , Honor, who has not stopped growing his catalog either exponentially.
A few years ago, following Samsung’s catalog was almost mission impossible. Today the Korean firm has significantly reduced the number of Android smartphones in its ranks, although it seems that Huawei has taken a liking to that strategy of competing against itself saturating the market with more and more models each one more similar to the previous one.
The last to arrive is this Honor 7A that does not have the aspirations of Huawei P20 Pro Obviously, it has not received any recognition from Huawei or from Honor itself, which has presented in China by surprise and with a very low profile.
Arrives for compete in the mid-range but in a lower range of prices and benefits of what we are used to seeing lately in this type of devices, especially those that like this arrive from China, and will complete the Honor 7 family standing just below the Honor 7X Y Honor 7C that we already knew.
The Honor 7A is a mid-range smartphone by definition, although we could even include it among the phones of medium-low cut , because the enormous competition that exists between the most compensated devices in terms of their price / performance ratio has greatly narrowed margins and differences.
However, and despite his modest aspirations, has not renounced the identity of the rest of Honor 7 , and that the “all-screen” design once again features an optimized front that stretches its panel to a 18: 9 format . Nor does the double camera , and much less the latest version of Android, the 8.0 Oreo, which as always will be masked by EMUI.
The lines are identical but not the target audience, and that is This Honor 7A and its colorful plastic housing will look for younger users with more affordable prices, eliminating the cost of installing the metal housings of the Honor 7X and 7C.
Does not change the disposition of the cameras in the upper left corner of the back neither the focused and quite ergonomic position of the fingerprint reader, nor the clean front with the Honor logo on the bottom frame, and that rounded corners design to the iPhone sure you will like it In addition, the plastic lightens its weight to an incredible 150 grams in a phone of almost 6 inches.
As for its hardware section, Honor forgets its own-made HiSilicon chipsets, and will mount a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 solvent that has more solera in international markets, also avoiding saturating the semiconductor manufacturing plants that Huawei owns.
A chipset that joins eight-core processor and Adreno 505 GPU, and that supported by 2 or 3 GB of RAM according to models he will be more than capable of moving his 5.7 inch screen and HD + resolution , 1,440 x 720 pixels in 18: 9 format.
What does the Honor 7A offer us? Well, here goes the complete list of specifications of the new low-end smartphone from the Chinese manufacturer:

In fact, while on the front we find a modest 8 megapixel sensor with aperture f / 2.2 that has its own LED flash, in the back we will have a system of double camera with 13 and 2 megapixel sensors, f / 2.2 aperture and blur effect , obviously with its LED flash and ability to record video in FullHD.
You will not miss the double SIM or the LTE connectivity, nor the FM Radio that fortunately is present, but yes to the chip NFC – your lack will prevent us from paying with your mobile -, and also to the USB Type-C connector, which in this case leaves ground to the microUSB v2.0.
It will arrive with the system facial recognition Huawei fully functional, and we also have the port in the upper frame 3.5 mm audio-jack to connect standard headphones.
At the moment the international availability of this model has not been announced, but having in our borders practically all the catalog of Honor available in its official store will most likely end up arriving in Spain. Where it is not expected in any case is in Latin America.
