The Honor 7’s fully metallic body is air-brushed with a ceramic coating, offering an unmistakably premium finish. The device’s 5.2-inch encasing and carefully positioned buttons and sensors allows for an ergonomic single-handed operation like never before. Honor 7 is aimed at digital natives, purpose-built for single-handed use and includes a host of innovate smart functions and multimedia capabilities operated through its dedicated smart button and gesture-enabled fingerprint reader.
Two months ago the Indian government sent a directive to all smartphone manufacturers to include a panic button or a SOS feature in all its smartphones. Honor India was the first mobile handset brand to incorporate a pre-embedded SOS feature in the phone. The SOS feature will be an application which can be configured by the user as per her or his convenience. It can be activated by pressing power button and shaking the phone as well as other combination of buttons. This feature will be made available in the first batch of Honor 7.
The Honor 7’s frame-free metallic fingerprint reader allows for rapid 360-degree fingerprint authentication from various angles and even boasts a self-learning capability that allows scanning accuracy to be enhanced through the subtle re-recording of registered fingerprints during use. The reader also supports intuitive gesture control that enables users to do everything from answer calls to take photos to check notifications. The fingerprint technology integrates dual hardware security defense systems, protecting your private data through the safe, app lock and visitor mode. It provides a solution that requires a smaller fingerprint touch area and screen unlock within shortest at 0.5 seconds. When you swipe down on the fingerprint sensor it opens the notification panel and double-touch on the fingerprint sensor lets you dismiss all notifications.
