Huawei, one of the biggest smartphone manufacturer from China, has announced the new Honor 7i.
The key feature of this phone is rotating camera module that can be plucked out and pointed forward to take self portraits. Using the main camera for self portraits will result in much higher quality images and the rotating camera also allows taking photos from different perspective by simply pointing the camera module instead of turning the entire phone.
How about realibility? Huawei claimes it will last for two years even if you open it 132 times a day. Seriously, it is a lot. Powering the camera is a Sony 13 megapixels BSI sensor with 28mm f/2.0 lens.
The Honor 7i is also the first phone to have fingerprint sensor on the side of the phone. The sensor is on the left of the phone and Huawei claims it is the smallest sensor on any phone. It can be unlocked the phone and take pictures by touching with your thumb.
As usual Huawei always put a good taste on build quality. The same as Honor 7i, it has an aluminum frame on the side with glass on the back and 5.2-inch 1080p display on the front side. It will be powered by Snapdragon 615 with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage with another variant of 2GB RAM and 16GB storage. Both variants have a microSD slot. Powering it is EMUI 3.1 and a 3000mAh battery.
