Honor 7x, Honor 9 Lite similarities

  • HiSilicon Kirin 659
  • Fingerprint scanner, Face ID
  • Dual-sim slot
  • Full HD+ resolution displays

The Honor 7X and Honor 9 Lite was introduced to us last year with dual rear cameras and a similar specification with HiSilicon Kirin 659, 18:9 display and Full HD+ resolution displays. Honor 7X is a bit larger with 5.93″ than Honor 9 lite with 5.65″ which makes it less dense compared to Honor 7X.

For the optics, Honor 9 lite is equipped with company’s first ever quad-camera. A front and back 13MP + 2MP sensors. The Honor 7X doesn’t have that feature but it has a dual rear camera with 16MP + 2MP sensor and 8MP for a front-facing camera.

Both handsets have a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and a face unlock for security features. Also, 7X has a bigger battery juice of 3340mAh compared to Huawei 9 Lite with 3000mAh for battery capacity.

Now that you’ve seen their similarities and differences, which do think will make it on your pockets?
