Honor 7X to launch today, watch live webcast here

Today in London, Huawei announced the Honor View 10, a new flagship device from the company that will be offered alongside the more budget-friendly Honor 7X. Huawei sub-brand Honor has been tackling that in the United States for almost two years and has now brought a third iteration into its "X" series of devices to step on the gas. Fortunately, the buyers who had registered for it already on Amazon.in can win freebies in undeclared amount later.

Honor V10, a dual sim phone, runs on Android 8.0 and is powered by a 3750mAh non-removable battery. The India launch was confirmed when e-commerce giant Amazon started taking registrations of the handset last week, revealing that the Honor 7X will go on sale on December 7 at 12PM. There is only one camera on the front panel and the dual cameras on back are horizontally placed.

There is a thin bezel design with 18:9 aspect ratio, that gives the 5.93-inch screen a wider and highly immersive feeling to the phone. It has resolution of 2,160×1,080p. It is powered by a Kirin 970 processor and comes with the Neural Processing Unit (NPU) for improved artificial intelligence.

Driving test changes 2017 - what's new?
The independent driving component is being doubled to 20 minutes and candidates will have to follow directions given by a sat nav. Another new addition to the test is the addition of extra "show me" and "tell me" questions.

■ Huawei has clubbed the processor with 4GB RAM in both 32GB and 64GB storage variants. 7X users who want more storage can add up to 256GB more via microSD cards. It will succeed the Honor 6X, which was launched in February 2017 and is now retailing at Rs13,999.

Honor is toting the 7X's display as a major upgrade, and it's certainly impressive that the company has managed to squeeze an nearly 6-inch display into a body that would traditionally accommodate a 5.5-inch screen. There is no word on the release of the Oreo update for the phone at this point. With Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) and the latest algorithms, the Honor 7X enables focusing in 0.18 seconds. It runs on Android 7.0 with Emotion UI on top. That means that you'll see a lot of the same features, such as the ability for the camera to know what it's looking at, such as if it's a plant, flowers, the sky, a dog, or a cat.

On the bottom edge of the device is a 3.5mm headphone jack, which is welcome if you use wired headsets.
