Honor 7A Prime: new but a bit outdated

In a number of Russian online storesappeared model Honor 7A Prime. It seems to be new. At first sight. On the second it turned out that not at all. In fact, this is a re-release of Honor 7A - a model introduced in Russia since 2018. Unless the drive capacity was increased and a new color was added.

The color of the season is green. In the case of Honor 7A Prime - emerald green. There is also a black version. Whether this list is exhaustive is not yet clear, official information about the model is not available.

If you take the black version, then the 2018 modelHonor 7A Prime can be distinguished by the absence of a thin strip at the level of the camera module. This is where the visual differences end. Substantial ones come down to doubling the capacity of the internal drive: Honor 7A has 16 GB, Honor 7A Prime has 32 GB. Everything else is inherited unchanged.

The inheritance is not rich: weak hardware MediaTek MT6739, little RAM - 2 GB, stale OS, no fingerprint scanner. The standard battery is 3020 mAh. The screen is small 5.45 ″, with a TFT-matrix resolution of 720 × 1440 pixels.

The issue price at the start of sales is ₽7990 ($ 103). DNS is cheaper, ₽7499 ($ ​​96.5), but so far the option is only black. In any case, the device has not yet been sold; the exact date has not been determined.

Update: A replica of the Honor 7A Prime was found - Huawei Enjoy 8e Youth. Released on the Chinese market in May 2018.
