Honor is in full swing in their return in the Philippines. To even add to their existing SKUs in the market like the Honor 10, they have officially announced the Honor 7A and 7S in the Philippines.
Both the Honor 7S and 7A are aimed to a more budget-oriented smartphone compared to the Honor 10. Despite that, however, both smartphones still pack specifications that won’t disappoint its users.
Both smartphones come with an 18:9 HD+ 1440 x 720 screen with the only difference being their size. The Honor 7A has a larger 5.7-inch display while the Honor 7S has a comparatively smaller 5.45 screen.
The Honor 7A has a 13MP + 2 MP rear camera setup while the Honor 7S comes with a 13MP shooter. The former, however, has a more powerful 8MP f/2.0 LED flash while the latter has a 5MP rear shooter.
The Honor 7S has a more impressive 24MP on its China release. Since this is a global release, we’re stuck with a smaller 5MP shooter.
As far as processing power goes, the Honor 7S comes with a MediaTek MT6739 quad-core Soc with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The Honor 7A, meanwhile, has a more traditional Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. Here are the full specifications of both the Honor 7A and Honor 7S:
