When it comes to smartphones, Huawei is a company known for creating affordable and generally good value for money products. While they have created some pretty powerful handsets, it has never really reached the kind of cult status that Apple’s iPhones and Samsung’s Galaxy S-series have attained.
However it looks like they could be well on their way with the Huawei Honor 7. The Honor 7 was announced a couple of weeks ago and according to Huawei, it turns out that the handset is a hit, so much so that the company is boasting that they have received as many as 9 million pre-orders of the phone to date.
What makes this even more impressive is the “limited” launch of the handset which is currently only available in China. “The smartphone honor 7 was launched in China last week and has already received orders for 9 million units, just one week following the launch. This makes it the first Honor product to generate the highest demand in such a short time,” reads Huawei’s press release.
As a quick recap for those who missed the announcement, the Huawei Honor 7 is Huawei’s latest smartphone. It features a unibody made out of aluminum alloy and will sport a 5.2-inch 1080p display. It will be powered by Huawei’s own Kirin 935 chipset and will come with a 20MP rear-facing camera, an 8MP front-facing camera, a 3,100mAh battery, a fingerprint scanner, and all of this will be priced starting at a very affordable $320.
