Huawei Honor 7i phone has a single swivel camera and unique fingerprint sensor
The demand for good front-facing cameras is rising due to the selfie craze and manufacturers have this demand in mind. Many smartphones already have impressive front cameras but Huawei has a different take on the rear and front-facing cameras. They have come-up with a smartphone that has one (instead of two different) swappable camera that solves all your photography cravings.
In Beijing, Huawei released Honor 7i smartphone which has a sapphire-protected Sony lens having 13-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 aperture and a unique 180 degree swivel mechanism that lets you toggle between shooting a selfie or conventional photos with utmost ease. The LED flash is also a part of the swiveling part and how Huawei managed to get that done is par excellence. They claim that even if you swivel the camera back and forth 132 times a day for 2 years it won’t affect its hardware.
There is a fingerprint scanner positioned on the left side which is a first ever for smartphones. That means you have just move your left hand thumb on the side to securely lo-in to the phone. Pretty interesting it is infact.
Apart from these two standout features, the 5.2-inch IPS screen phone has features like an eight core 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 616 processor mated to a 2GB/3GB RAM.
Huawei Honor 7i will run on Android 5.1 Lollipop OS and is backed by a 3100 mAh battery. There are two variants of the phone, 16GB and 32GB with the capacity to increase storage using microSD card. The phone will roll out for sale on September 1 with a price tag of 250 USD for the 16GB model (2GB RAM) and 300 USD for the 32 GB version (3GB RAM).
