Honor has officially launched the new 7A and 7S—midrange smartphones that carry flagship features.

The Honor 7A has a bezel-less display, facial recognition technology, real-time headset monitoring, a “Party mode,” dual Bluetooth connection, three-card slots (dual SIM plus dedicated microSD slot), and a high-volume function. Its “flagship-level” cameras—13-megapixel on the rear and 8-megapixel on the front—have a variety of shooting modes: Beauty, Capture Smiles, Ultra-snapshot, Food, Watermark, and AR Lens. It also has a built-in Selfie Toning Light.

The Party mode allows nine smartphones to connect together via Wi-Fi and play the same music simultaneously. The 7A’s high-volume technology uses a smart amplifier chip and high-sensitivity speaker components to raise the volume to as high as 88dB while ensuring sound quality. It also features a real-time headset monitoring, which works like the in-ear monitors used by musicians during live performance.

The Honor 7A also has an independently developed facial recognition system analyzes 1,024 separate facial features and delivers accurate results within moments. The Face Unlock function uses 1,024 sets feature dimensions to capture the face and encrypt the data via local Trust Zone in order to increase accuracy and security.

It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor with EMUI 8.0 skinned over Android 8.1 Oreo. It is powered by a 3,000mAh battery, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB internal storage (with microSD expansion up to 256GB). The Honor 7A  is available on Shopee and retails for P6,990. It will also be on flash sale on July 14 and 30 on the app for P5,990.

Meanwhile, the Honor 7S features the full-view display, LED flash on both front and back cameras, smart battery management, and dual SIM and microSD slots (which supports up to 256GB extra storage). It has an 18:9 widescreen HD display and 1,440×720 resolution.

This also has a “Loud Voice Call” function so you can listen to phone calls better, even in a noisy environment. It has a 3,020mAh battery and runs on a MediaTek MT6739, 2GB of RAM, Android 8.1 Oreo, and 16GB internal storage.

The Honor 7S is now available in select stores for P5,490.
