Honor 7S announced, promising premium features for under £100

The Honor 7S has just been announced for the UK and it’s a true entry-level phone when it comes to price, as it’s just £99. That's even cheaper than the Honor 7A.

The handset, which landed in Pakistan last month, packs in a surprising number of features for such a low price.

Highlights including a 5.45-inch 720 x 1440 screen with a trendy 18:9 resolution, combined with bezels that are apparently ‘barely-there’, though they’re certainly bigger than on most pricier phones.

The Honor 7S also sports an LED flash on both its 13MP rear camera and its 5MP front-facing one, with the latter flash doubling as a ‘Selfie Light.’

And there’s a ‘Loud Voice Call’ feature, which uses a powerful receiver to ensure calls are loud and clear, even in noisy environments.

Standard specs

The phone has a 1.5GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6739 chipset, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, so those parts of the specs are a bit more basic, but you do also get a microSD card slot and support for two SIM cards.

The battery is 3,020mAh and includes smart battery management to keep it going for longer, though when it does come time to plug in you’ll be doing so with micro USB rather than USB-C.

If you like the sound of the Honor 7S you’ll be able to pick it up from today in Argos, from Three, or direct from Honor’s store, and it’s available in blue, black or gold.
