Huawei Honor 7A leaks with a tall screen and dual camera, short on CPU power

The Honor 7 family is growing another letter as China Telecom briefly let an Honor 7A peek out from under the covers. The phone should be made official this Friday at a price of CNY 1,500 ($240/€190).

It has all the trappings of a modern smartphone, including an 18:9 screen and a dual camera. The screen is reasonably big at 5.7”, but not too sharp – 720 x 1,440. The processing power is modest too, with a Snapdragon 430 chipset (not even a 450). The memory situation is pretty good at 3GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage.

The dual camera has a 13MP main shooter and a 2MP helper. With that resolution, chances are this will be used for bokeh effects.

The Huawei Honor 7A will launch with Android 8.0 Oreo. It is powered by a 3,000mAh battery and measures 152.4 x 73 x 7.8mm and weighs 150g.
