Huawei has updated its Honor line of smartphones with the Honor 7. In the camera department, the new model offers a 20MP sensor resolution combined with a 6-element lens featuring an F2.0 aperture and a protective sapphire glass cover. For increased autofocus speed and accuracy the Honor 7 camera employs a phase-detection system, similar to the 'focus pixels' in Apple's latest iPhone models. At the front an 8MP module is installed for selfie-capture and video chats and a dual LED flash helps in dark environments.

The display measures 5.2 inches and offers a 1080p resolution. Android 5.0 is powered by a 64-bit Kirin 935 chipset and 3GB of RAM. A 3100mAh battery with fast charging technology should make sure you don't run out of juice anytime soon and the fingerprint sensor, which looks a lot like the unit found on the Huawei Mate 7, is on board as well.

The Honor 7 will come in three versions, all of which use the specifications described above and a metal body. The most basic model comes with 16GB of storage and LTE connectivity. There is also a dual-SIM version and the top-model offers 64GB of internal storage and dual-SIM. MicroSD-support is available on all three variants. The Honor 7 will be available in China from July 7 and cost you approximately $320 for the 16GB basic model. The dual-SIM version will be $355 and the 64GB model retails for $400. There is no word on availability outside China yet.
