Honor has today shared a promotional image on their weibo page revealing the launch of a new handset, the Honor 7X.
The promotional image shows “7X” in very bold font, which stretches to the very edges of the poster. Underneath is a release date which points to October 11th as the official announcement.
The Honor 7 released over two years ago, so don’t expect it to be a follow-up to this. Confusing naming conventions aside, there’s some revealing information in the image which gives details about the device. Translated into English, the message reads:
“Want to see farther than ordinary people? Higher? Wider your head and the world”
The poster itself doesn’t really show much however the image seems to depict an epic landscape in the background. It’s also worth noting that the aspect ratio of the poster is 18:9… Combine this with the message and we’re probably looking at another handset with an 18:9 panel. Since the Honor 9 is the company’s current flagship, we would expect this to be more of a mid-range affair. Perhaps a direct competitor to the recently announced LG Q6?
While there’s nothing confirmed, speculated features include a Kirin 670 processor, 4GB RAM and a large 4,000mAh. This is in addition to that touted 18:9 panel, which is expected to carry a resolution of 2160×1080.
