Huawei Honor 7 available in Europe at a super-price

Huawei Honor 7 was launched in Europe earlier this week and it seems like a smartphone with a deal. For the first few days you can get one for under £250, but the price will go up 20 to 40% in the future.

This Chinese smartphone is part of the Honor brand, a line that became rather popular in Europe since it launched last year. You can also find Honor phones in the US and other non-European areas but without this brand

Huawei Honor 7 specs and details

 

Honor 7 has a premium-looking metallic body and is available in White,Black and Gold versions. The device presents a nice fingerprint sensor on the back of the device, just below the camera. The rest of the specs are as follows:

  • 5.2-inch 1080 x 1920 p (`424ppi)
  • quad-core 2.2 GHz Cortex A53 and Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex A-53
  • 3GB RAM

It appears that Huawei Honor 7 is indeed a quality phone that offers customers value for money. It looks decent, has medium-range specs that work for it and it could change the way people buy phones. The device stands out for the price-range and it also presents features usually seen in more expensive flagships.

 

The device costs 1,999 yuan in China, around $325, and in the US and other non-EU or Asian countries you can get it for a much pricier ~$500 from importers on Amazon and other similar virtual shops.

Panasonic’s LUMIX Smart Camera DSC-M1 is a camera-smartphone hybrid

Panasonic is following on Samsung’s steps and launches its own super-camera ready to mount on a phone. We are talking about the LUMIX Smart Camera DSC-M1, a little point and shoot camera that compresses an entire Android phone on its back.

The smartphone face of the camera is a high-end device with a 2.3 Ghz Snapdragon 800 processor and 2 GB of RAM, a 4.7” 1080p display and a stock version of KitKat. It appears that the camera sensor is one of the best around, with its 1” length and 20 MPs. It is found behind the Leica F/2.8 28 mm lens with a manual focusing ring.

The device has physical buttons that allow users to engage with the camera app and make it resemble a full-on camera. The device presents manual controls for aperture, exposure, aperture and ISO 4K video shooting in full DSLR style.

Lumix Smart Camera phone is a bit thick for its overall appearance at 21 mm, even if it is a little small for a camera, by comparison. It also has a microSD slot and is powered by a 2600 mAh battery and its only weak point could be the one intended to be its most powerful one: the lens doesn’t move so users will not be able to zoom in or out on their subjects.

LUMIX DSC-CM1 has a nice metal and faux leather body and it will go on sale starting November in Germany and France. It appears the device will be sold for around $1164 (900 euro). The device will propagate on the European market, but AndroidPolice thinks it will never reach the US market.
