Huawei Honor 7S Design

The rear camera is positioned horizontally with an LED flash at the top left corner. The foundation could accommodate even more than one camera, but the company went for just one. On the front side, there is a display with thick bezels surrounding it and the Honor logo at the bottom.
The phone measures 146.5 x 70.9 x 8.3 mm (5.77 x 2.79 x 0.33 in) and weighs only 142 grams (5.01 oz.).
