Huawei has just announced a rather unique new smartphone that can swivel out up to 180˚ degrees of the camera, Huawei Honor 7i. This actually reminded me of the rotation camera smartphone that Oppo N1 & Oppo N3 has. This allows you to take various other angles for creative shots and as well higher resolution of selfie.
The Huawei Honor 7i is not a flagship device instead a mid range camera-centric smartphone. It also feature the first fingerprint scanner that embedded neatly on the side of the phone by using the smallest fingerprint sensor.
The sleek aluminum body has a 5.2-inch Full HD IPS display and powered with Qualcomm new SoC, Snapdragon 616 and mated with 3GB of RAM.
Mentioned about the camera, it uses SONY 13 megapixels f/2.0 with 28mm wide lens that protected with sapphire glass. It also equipped with dual LED flash.
With the new placement of the fingerprint sensor and no more front camera, the Honor 7i designed out with excellent screen-to-body ratio of 79.8%
The Huawei Honor 7i will available in China starting 1st September thru online flash sales. It will be priced at RMB 1,899 (approx RM 1,223) and comes with 2 colours Silver or Champagne Gold.
