Honor 7C official, low cost smartphone with facial recognition

The Chinese company is about to launch on the market the Honor 7C, low cost device but with facial recognition, three SIM slots and dual rear camera

Honor bets on low cost smartphones and does it in its own way: with facial recognition and dual rear camera. Honor 7C will be an elegant device with several mid-range features but at a low cost, 179 euros.

This is, at present, the only smartphone under 200 euros equipped with a dual rear camera and, above all, the technology that allows facial recognition. The smartphone from the Chinese company affiliated with Huawei will therefore be able to unlock simply with our face, in addition to the fingerprint sensor.  In addition, the phone will have three slots: two for SIM cards and one for microSD card. In this way we will not have to choose between dual SIM and additional memory. Honor 7C therefore is suitable for those who use the smartphone for work and need memory but also to diversify their phone agenda. The body is made of metal with a 5.99-inch FullView screen.

Technical data sheet Honor 7C

Under the 5.99-inch FullView display (resolution HD+ (1440×720), 18:9 form ratio and 2.5D curved glass) we find the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset supported by 3 or 4 gigabytes of RAM depending on the model you buy. The smartphone runs Android Oreo 8.0 which, like all Honor devices of late 2017 and early 2018, will be customized with EMUI 8.0. The phone also has dual Bluetooth support: this means that you will be able to connect two devices via Bluetooth technology at the same time. The 3000mAh battery guarantees a day of autonomy even in case of intense work.

As already mentioned, on the back of the Honor 7C we find two photo sensors: the main 13-megapixel and the secondary 2-megapixel. The front camera, on the other hand, is 8 megapixels, more than enough to ensure facial recognition of the user and allow unlocking the device. In addition, the user will be able to take advantage of the selfie softlight function, which helps improve selfies even in case of low light conditions.

Honor 7C, Italy availability and price

The Honor 7C will be released in Italy on April 23, 2018 and you can buy it directly on the website of the Chinese company. There are three colors available: blue, black and white. The price of the device, as mentioned, is 179 euros.
