After weeks of teasing, Huawei subsidiary Honor is all geared up for the global launch of the company's brand new mid-range Honor 7X series on December 5.

The company is hosting the Honor 7X unveiling event in London and the keynote speech is slated to kick-off at 14:30 GMT (8 pm IST). It has also made arrangements to webcast the entire programme online on its official YouTube channel (link below) for fans, who can't make it to the venue.

Since Honor 7X is already released in China, the device specifications are already in the public domain, but the price and the global availability details are yet to be ascertained. But, we don't have to wait much longer, as it will be revealed later tonight including for the Indian market.

For those unaware, Honor 7X comes with lots of upgrades over its predecessor Honor 6X both in terms of exterior looks and internal hardware.
