Announcement. Honor X7b 5G is a simple global smartphone with a good battery and a bunch of relatives

Honor has announced (and globally)a smartphone called Honor X7b 5G (and this is not at all the same as the Honor X7b 4G announced in December). I will get confused about the family connections of the new device a little later. First, let me briefly tell you about its characteristics.

Honor X7b 5G is made on a not very vigorous MediaTek Dimensity 6020 chipset (~400K in AnTuTu).

There is a decent amount of memory. 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage (apparently, only one modification will be sold). It is unclear whether memory cards are supported.

The screen is not outstanding. IPS matrix with a slightly increased (up to 90 Hz) refresh rate. The diagonal is large, 6.8″ (111 cm²). Standard resolution, 1080×2412 (389 ppi).

The battery is excellent - 6000 mAh. Charging is slightly accelerated - 35 W.

Cameras. 8 MP front, 108+2+2 MP rear. Not a particularly impressive set.

There is a fingerprint scanner. The NFC module is not mentioned in the description.

It is not yet clear how much the Honor X7b 5G will cost.

Now about relatives.

From its brother Honor X7b 4G, a newcomer, of course,differs in chipset (the 4G version uses Qualcomm Snapdragon 680, ~300-350K in AnTuTu). Suddenly, the Honor X7b 4G has a simple wide-angle camera, which is missing in its newborn brother. (Honor X7b 4G can now be purchased for RUB 13,650 ($148) for the 8+128 GB version).

The next relative is a recently spottedFrance Honor 90 Smart. It has less memory (4+128 GB) and, oddly enough, a slightly less capacious battery – 5330 mAh. With exactly the same declared weight and the same dimensions. Otherwise the performance characteristics are identical. The price is not particularly humane, by the way. For such and such amount of memory. €249.90 (₽24900, $269).

Two more close relatives are the “Chinese” Honor Play 8T (formally it has a slightly different chipset) and Honor Play 50 Plus. Both have a simpler main camera – only 50 MP.
