Huawei Announces Honor 7i with Rotating Camera


Huawei has released a mid-range Honor 7i with an unusual camera design. The camera module rotates from back to front to act not only as a great rear camera but a fantastic front-facer. 

The Honor 7i uses Sony’s 13MP camera sensor with F2.0 aperture and the camera is covered in sapphire glass to prevent scratching. The phone is made out of aluminium and plastic that has been strengthened with glass fiber.

Inside there are a 64-bit Snapdragon 616 SoC, 2 or 3GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB of storage and a 3100mAh battery. The Honor 7i also has a fingerprint scanner on the side of the device, dual-SIM support and Android 5.1 with Huawei’s EMUI 3.1 user interface.

The rotating camera is not the first we have seen but it’s a little different compared to Oppo N1 that had a much wider rotating camera module that was also a part of the front and rear panels. The Honor 7i costs around $250 in China but availability in other markets is unknown.
