Huawei Honor 7i is the latest smartphone in town courtesy of the Chinese giant, Huawei.

This smartphone comes in with a spotlight on its camera, thanks to its 13MP snapper that can actually flip.

When you look at it, the camera is just like any other rear camera of a smartphone. However, there is more to this Honor 7i snapper as it can rotate at an angle of 180 degrees such it can now be used as a front snapper. Isn’t that amazing? Furthermore, there is room for you to adjust to certain weird angles, for instance, 90 degrees, just for taking experimental shots.

Huawei has decided that it won’t be left behind with the fingerprint technology as it has included it on this Honor 7i smartphone. This feature can be found on the left side of the phone and in addition to being a fingerprint sensor; it can also be used as a camera button.

Huawei not the first to install a rotating camera on smartphones

While the rotating camera feature of the Huawei Honor 7i might sound strange to many smartphone users, it won’t be the first time we will be seeing such an amazing creation.


Oppo has been at it at some point, rolling out a number of smartphones that feature rotating snappers. Even though Huawei have come in with a rather similar concept, the implementation in the latest case is quite different.

Other features of Huawei Honor 7i

The rotating camera is not the only eye-catching feature of the Honor 7i. There is more to this mid-range smartphone as it comes with features and specs that are more of like a high-end smartphone.

The size of the display alone will leave many of those looking to buy the latest Samsung Galaxy S6 thinking twice as it features a slightly larger screen of 5.2 inches. However, the resolution is a bit lower when compared to Samsung’s flagship as the Honor 7i only manages 1080p.

Inside the Huawei Honor 7i you will find an older Qualcomm chipset, a Snapdragon 616 SoC. Samsung dropped the Qualcomm chipsets, with some pundits citing the issue of overheating as a major contributor to this move. However, HTC kept faith with this U.S. Company when rolling out the latest HTC One M9. If you love to play games and run lots of applications on your phone, the Honor 7i will also be a perfect match for you with its 3GB of RAM.

Huawei Honor 7i has two variants

The aspect of rolling out several variants of a smartphone seems to be exciting many manufacturers and not just Samsung and Apple. Huawei is among the debutants in this niche and with the Honor 7i you can have a variant with 16GB of internal storage and is equipped with a RAM of 2GB and a variant with 32GB of internal storage and a RAM of 3GB.


There are also two color variants where you can choose from gold and silver. The battery unit of the Huawei Honor 7i is quite decent, standing at 3100mAh. This Huawei smartphone has two Nano SIM slots.

Price of Huawei Honor 7i

The Honor 7i has not hit the U.S. markets yet. In China, however, it currently exchanges hands at about $250 for the 16GB variant and $300 for the 32GB model. The company has not spoken a word on its availability in the U.S. and other parts of the world, but it won’t be very long.
