So finally after a series of leaks and speculations, the Honor 7C has been officially launched at an event in China today morning. The Honor 7C is a midrange device from Honor and following the current trend, the device sports a full-screen display and a dual rear camera setup (In fact, all of the devices from Honor will now be on 18:9 display).
Talking about the display, it is a 5.99 inch HD display with a resolution of 1440*720 pixels and with the 18:9 aspect ratio. Though this is a midrange device, it has been powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 Chipset and is coupled with 4GB of RAM. Actually, there is also the other variant of the device which comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, whereas the 4GB variant comes with 64GB of RAM. Now getting in detailed regarding the dual camera setup, it has got two different sensors.
One is a 13MP primary sensor and the other one stands out to be a 2MP depth sensor. For all the selfie freaks out there, there is an 8MP front camera which has been placed right on the top. Talking about some juice, the device is equipped with a 3000 mAh battery and out of the box the device runs on Android Oreo 8.0, and yes it does come with EMUI on top of it.
Though Honor has been highlighting the face unlock feature, it is totally depended on the front camera. Officially the device will be on sale right from tomorrow that is 13th of March. The 4GB variant of the device is priced at 1299 Yuan and the 3GB variant retails at 899 Yuan.

HTC U12 Plus Launched! Comes with Quad Cameras & No Notch!
HTC has been always one to do something special with their phones- whether it’s the ‘Squeeze’ function or the all-glass body. The company has now launched its latest flagship with a lot of stuff that you guys out there will love. Let’s get on to the stuff.
Flaunting an elegant 6 inch QHD+ screen with the standard 18:9 aspect ratio, and a pretty glass finish, this little piece of hardware is bound to turn many heads. And if you were wondering, yes the phone looks exactly like the one we saw in the leaks earlier.
HTC hasn’t launched any U12 before the phone. The company has termed the reason as because they didn’t want to mislead people into thinking that there’d be a better plus version of the phone 6 months down the road.
The phone is IP-68 rated for Water and Dust resistance. Moreover, it comes with HTC’s well known Boom-sound speakers.
Also you’ll notice that the phone doesn’t come with a notch. Well done HTC.
Moving to the optics, the phone comes with a dual camera setup both at the front and rear. The rear setup has 12 Megapixel and 16 Megapixel sensors placed horizontally. The 12 Megapixel camera with an aperture of f/1.75 is supposed to handle low-light while the 16 MP sensor comes with 2x optical zooming. On the front, you get two 8 Megapixel sensors. Both have an aperture of f/2.0. While there’s OIS and EIS on the rear, the front cameras come with no such luxury. It pretty much means that you can shake your phone for no reason at all when taking photos with your rear cam.
Even though it comes with a Glass back, the HTC U12 Plus doesn’t come with Wireless Charging. However, it comes with a 3500 mAh battery which is sure to last you all day. Now lets jump to the performance department.
As expected, the U12 Plus comes with a Snapdragon 845 SoC and 6GB of RAM for the highest variant. The lower variant comes with 6GB of RAM and 64 GB of Storage at a price of 800 dollars. Or you can put some more money for buying the 128GB version. However, my money is on a microSD card.
HTC U12 Plus Specifications
- 6 inch 2K display (18:9)
- Snapdragon 845
- 6GB RAM
- 64/128GB internal storage
- 12MP (f/1.8, 1.4µm, Dual Pixel PDAF) + 16MP (f/2.6, 1.0µm), phase detection & laser autofocus Dual cameras
- Dual 8MP front cameras
- 3500mAh battery
