The Enhanced Edition also comes with more internal storage than the original.
Huawei just became the second manufacturer (after HTC) to announce a smartphone that runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow and isn’t a Nexus device: the Honor 7 Enhanced Edition. It’s not that surprising considering Huawei made the latest Nexus flagship, and the fact that it has simply decided to bring out an upgraded version of a previous phone.
The Enhanced Edition of the Honor 7 also comes with more internal storage – 32GB instead of 16GB – but doesn’t bring any other changes. The specs include a 5.2-inch Full HD LCD display, an octa-core Huawei Kirin 935 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 20-megapixel rear camera, an 8 MP front-facing camera, a microSD slot, LTE connectivity, and a 3,100 mAh battery. On top of Android 6.0 lies the company’s EMUI 4.0 user interface.
Huawei hasn’t said when it plans to update the original Honor 7 to Marshmallow, but it is likely to take until next year before rolling it out given updates for existing devices have to go through various testing procedures and carrier approvals. The Honor 7 Enhanced Edition is now available in China for a price of 1,990 Yuan (roughly $309).
