For starters, the Honor 7 gets an aluminium alloy shell for both front and back which not only gives it better durability but it also helps to improve thermal efficiency. The front gets a slightly larger 5.2″ Full HD display, which is similar to its current Huawei P8. Powering the device is their top of the line Kirin 935 64-bit Octa-Core processor which utilises 4x A53 Cores @ 2.2GHz + 4x A53 Cores @ 1.5GHz. This is mated to 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM and depending on variant, you get either 16GB or 64GB of on-board storage. The Honor 7 is also a dual-SIM 4G LTE device and the secondary SIM slot also accepts microSD expansion up to 128GB.
