Although Honor has not announced the pricing of the handset in India but looking at the price of the device in China, the 32GB base variant is expected to be available 12,999/-, the 64GB variant at 15,999/-, whereas, the 128GB variant is expected to price around 17,000/-.

The biggest strengths of Honor 7X are, it’s bigger 18:9 ratio full HD+ display, metallic body and premium design, dual rear camera setup and last but not the least its performance. However, battery, front camera, and few other aspects need to be tested before a final verdict.
