A new device manufactured by Honor, dubbed the Honor 7X, has now been spotted on Geekbench and some of the key specs of the device have now ben displayed. The company has already announced that it will launch a new device on October 11. The Geekbench listing has also shown off 4GB of RAM as well as the in-house developed HiSilicon 659 SoC. The listing also means that the device may soon be on the verge of launching.
A new smartphone called the “Huawei BND-AL10” was first spotted on the very popular benchmarking site. Apparently, the new phone has been codenamed ‘Bond’. The device’s 3C certification reveals two model numbers: BND-AL10 and BND-TL10. The Geekbench listing also shows off the fact that the Honor 7X will run on the not-too-updated Android 7.0 Nougat. It will be powered thanks to an octa-core processor which will work in tandem with 4 GB of RAM. We have received previous reports which suggest that the in-house developed HiSilicon Kirin 659 chipset will power the Honor 7X.
The test scores are revealing. On the single-core test, the handset boasts of 909 points while the multi-core test has thrown up a score of 3159. All taken together, we believe that this will be a thoroughly mid-range phone. The Kirin 659 which will be at the heart of this device is a more powerful version of the Kirin 658 which powers the likes of the Huawei P10 Lite and the Huawei Nova Youth.
Huawei has launched a few new phones in recent days. It has, for example, launched the all-new Huawei Honor 9i (also known as Maimang 6 or Nova 2i in some areas), and which also boasts of power being provided by the Kirin 659 chipset.The Kirin 659 is based on a 16nm chipset manufacturing process and it has four Cortex A53 cores running at 2.36 GHz while the remaining four cores of Cortex A51 are clocked at 1.7 GHz. This chipset will also have the Mali T830 MP2 graphics.
Expect the new budget-friendly Huawei Honor 7X to have dual rear cameras. It will be a good competitor to the likes of the Xiaomi Mi 5X. Also, rumors allege that like the Honor 6X, the new 7X too will be sold outside China, the country of origin.
