As announced last week, Huawei's Honor -- in collaboration with e-commerce partner Amazon India -- is hosting the Honor 7X RED limited edition sale on Friday afternoon.
Honor 7X RED will be available exclusively on Amazon at 1:00 pm. It will be available in two configurations — 3GB RAM+32GB storage and 4GB RAM+64GB storage — for Rs 12,999 and Rs 15,999 respectively, same as the original series.
Though new variant has identical internal hardware and design language as other color options (blue, black and gold), it looks stunning in the bright crimson shade, an apt Valentine's Day gift for your loved one.
Considering its price and specs, Honor 7X is the most cost-effective mid-range mobile in the market right now. We reviewed the device and we are quite impressed with its dual camera, FullView display, build quality and the full-day battery life.

Honor 7X sports a high-grade metal-clad body with a bigger and gorgeous design language, having a 5.93-inch FullView display with 18:9 aspect ratio, which offers a rich cinematic viewing experience.
Under the hood, it comes packed with the proprietary HiSilicon Kirin 659 octa-core processor with 4GB RAM, 32GB/64GB storage and a 3,450mAh battery, which is more than enough to keep the phone running for more than a day under mixed usage.
The Honor 7X also boasts a 16MP+2MP dual snapper with portrait mode capability, which allows users to create the Bokeh effect with blurred background, and a decent 8MP selfie camera on the front.

In a related development, Honor, in what seems like a reversal of sales strategy, is foraying into offline space by making Honor 7X available in brick-and-mortar stores in India from February 9 onwards.
For those unaware, Honor was carved out of Huawei as an online-only brand. But, probably to give stiffer competition to fellow Chinese brands such as Xiaomi, Vivo and Oppo, Honor has partnered with prominent retail chains to sell its device off the counter as well.
