Huawei Honor 7 exposed with fingerprint reader

Huawei has another big announcement coming on June 8, but the news may have leaked out early on Chinese mobile certification site TENAA. The rumored Honor 7 surfaced this week, revealing a few new details and potentially confirming one key feature.

The device sports what looks like a fingerprint reader on its back panel just below the camera. We saw the same design revealed in some recent leaked photos, but this TENAA filing is a pretty good confirmation. Overall, the Huawei Honor 7 looks pretty sleek, even if the rear camera bulges out a bit.

Huawei’s new phone is expected to feature an all-metal design along with some solid specs. That includes a 5-inch 1080p display, a 3280mAh battery, the company’s own Kirin 935 processor and a 13-megapixel camera. You may also get to choose between two different models: either one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, or 3GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.

We’re expecting Huawei to unveil the Honor 7 next week, though it’s possible the company could keep us waiting a little bit longer. As for the price, GizmoChina claims the device will start at 1,999 Yuan in China. That’s about $320, though there’s no guarantee this device is headed to the U.S.
