Huawei Honor 7 and Honor 7 Plus release date, specs, rumors: June 8 release hinted at in official teaser

Huawei has been rumored to be developing a successor to its popular Honor 6 handset in the form of the Honor 7 and Honor 7 Plus. A new teaser now indicates that Huawei could introduce the Honor 7 and Honor 7 Plus on June 8.


According to earlier speculations, the Honor 7 is made of metal and sports a larger 5.5-inch FHD display as compared to that of the Honor 6. The device is expected to come with a dual-camera arrangement on the rear side along with an LED Flash. The Honor 7 is likely to be powered by one of Huawei's own Kirin 930 / 935 chips along with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage and is expected to run Android 5.0 Lollipop with Huawei's own EMUI on top.

On the other hand, the Honor 7 Plus is expected to sport a 5.5-inch, Quad HD (2,560 by 1,440 pixel) display and powered by the company's own octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 930 system-on-chip paired with 3GB RAM. The Honor 7 Plus will come with 16GB of internal storage, and also feature a 16 megapixel rear-camera with dual-LED flash, and a whopping 13 megapixel front-facing camera for selfies.

But latest reports had indicated that Huawei would release both the devices with a smaller screen without Quad HD display as it will be launching a Nexus device later this year and does not want the Huawei Honor 7 and the Honor 7 Plus to compete with one of its own smartphones.

The Huawei Honor 7 and Honor 7 Plus were expected to become available in June and July, respectively, but a new teaser indicates that both the devices could be introduced on June 8. Huawei's teaser image is quite cryptic, with the date being displayed on a galactic background and Albert Einstein's famous words "Imagination is everything" used as a caption on top.

The Huawei Honor 7 and Honor 7 Plus will reportedly sell for $320 and $435, respectively and become available on June 8. Stay tuned for the latest news and announcements.
