Honor has announced the new Honor 7 smartphone at a event in London, with the European launch of the device only a few months after the launch in China.



The Honor 7’s has a solid feel, the handset’s rear camera lens in Sapphire Crystal in a bid to protect it from scratches


It features a nifty “smart key.” The smart key is a physical button on the phone’s side that can be configured to open specific applications or services when pressed.

One other nice touch is the inclusion of a microSD card slot. The slot will let users add a further 128GB of storage to the Honor 7’s in-built 16GB of space.

The Honor 7 comes with a dual nano SIM tray meaning either two SIM cards or a SIM and microSD can be used, which is a smart bit of dual purposing in its own right.
