Huawei has extended its portfolio of 18:9 smartphones by launching a new device in China today. Dubbed as the Huawei Enjoy 7S, it is the successor to the Enjoy 6S which was launched last year. Last week couple of images of the device were leaked from China Telecom website. The device will be available in Black, Blue, Gold, and Rose Gold colour options.
The Huawei Enjoy 7S comes with a metal unibody design which follows the Huawei Honor smartphones look. At first sight, the rear of the Enjoy 7S almost looks like the Honor 8 Pro and the recently launch Honor 7X but the 7X had a slimmer bezel and bigger display. The smartphone features a 5.65-inch FullView display with Full HD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) resolution. The display comes with 18: aspect ratio and contains virtual on-screen navigation buttons. The right side contains the power button and the volume rocker.
The Enjoy 7S will be powered by a 64-bit Kirin 659 Octa-core processor clocked at 2.36 GHz along with Mali-T830 MP2 GPU on the graphics department. It offers two memory variants: 3 GB RAM + 32 GB internal storage and 4 GB RAM + 64 GB internal storage. Both the variants offer expandable memory option upto 256 GB with a micro SD card.
The Enjoy 7S like the Honor 7X comes with dual camera setup on the rear consisting of 13 MP and 2 MP camera sensor while the front offers an 8 MP camera for selfies and video calling. The device will run on Android 8.0 Oreo-based EMUI 8.0 out of the box and is backed by 3,000mAh non-removable battery with no fast charging support. The 7X goes 0-100% in about 2 hours and runs a day with moderate use. We can expect the same from the 7S.
The device comes with a hybrid SIM slot means you can’t use two SIM card along with a micro SD. But it comes with Huawei’s in-house Histen sound algorithm for offering Hi-Fi sound output. There is also a circular fingerprint sensor on the rear. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, FM Radio, GPS, A-GPS, 3.5 mm Audio jack, MicroUSB 2.0 port and 4G LTE.
About the pricing, the Huawei Enjoy 7S comes with a price tag of 1499 Yuan (Rs 14,500) for the 3 GB RAM + 32 GB ROM variant and 1699 Yuan (Rs. 16,500 approx) for the 4 GB RAM+ 64 GB ROM variant. At this pricing the device will be competing against the likes of Honor 7X, Moto G5s Plus, Xiaomi Mi A1, OPPO A73 and the Vivo Y75, the later two being launched today. The device is available for registration but will be available from December 22. There is no word about the global release yet.
