Honor 7X arrives in Saudi Arabia

Honor, Huawei Group’s smartphone e-brand, has released its latest and premium product in its X-series range, the Honor 7X.
The smartphone claims to delivers an “unparalleled” full-screen viewing experience at a price of SR1,049 ($280).
Huawei said the Honor 7X is the first smartphone to feature the FullView Display — a 5.93-inch edge-to-edge, bezel-less screen design that provides “remarkable display quality and achieves an extraordinary high screen-to-body ratio.”
In addition, the max-ed bezel-less screen and dual-lens 16-megapixel + 2-megapixel rear camera with large aperture and fast focusing means DSLR-level photo quality and shooting experience. This is combined with an octal-core Kirin 659 and graphics processing unit (GPU).
Chris Sun Baigong, vice president of Honor in the Middle East and Africa, said: “The Honor 7x clearly demonstrates our capability to offer young tech savvy consumers in the Middle East and Africa unprecedented technology at a value-added price while challenging the current market competitors. This is a smartphone that far exceeds their expectations with the best full-view display that caters to their ever-changing needs. Honor 7x offers a phone that inspires action and creativity at a surprisingly accessible price.”
Honor 7X is equipped with an 18:9 ratio, 5.93-inch FHD + display with 2160 X 1080 pixels resolution, providing ultra-high definition and superior display quality.
The screen allows gamers to see more when in the midst of the action. Additionally, the 18:9 screen ratio is close to the 21:9 ratio used by cinemas, meaning that the screen delivers a “cinema-like experience” to users.
Honor 7X packs up to 64GB of internal storage and an extended 128GB, and 4GB of RAM. This allows hundreds of TV episodes to be downloaded and stored to watch offline.
“Even with the larger FullView Display, a single charge of the 3,340 mAh battery enables Honor 7X to be on the go for more than one full day. Thanks to the power-saving technology and the Ultra Power Saving Mode, users can now enjoy a full season of their favorite TV series or 91 hours of music, on one charge,” the company said.

Land Rover, Terry Grant smash world record

Land Rover and international stunt driver Terry Grant smashed a world record at this week’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, with a two-wheel speed run in the new Range Rover Sport SVR. Grant’s 2:24.5 run up the famous hillclimb broke Grant’s old record for a mile traveled in a car on two wheels, set in 2011, by more than 30 seconds.
Grant flipped the Range Rover Sport SVR up on to two wheels with the use of a ramp, before hitting speeds of up 60mph on Goodwood’s famous hillclimb as he set the new Guinness World Record time.
Grant snatched the record in a dramatic last gasp attempt on Sunday afternoon, having attempted four runs earlier in the weekend, none of which Grant managed to complete.
The Range Rover Sport SVR is a 575hp performance SUV, capable of 0-60mph in 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 174mph — with four wheels on the road, at least. The Range Rover Sport only required one modification for the world record run, a tweak to its differential to allow the car to deliver more power to the two wheels on the ground — both of which were pumped up to 90PSI.
Grant is a multiple world-record holder, with 25 Guinness World Records already to his name, and with this latest record, Grant has bested a 2:55 run that he himself set at Goodwood in 2011.
Stunt driver Grant said: “It really shouldn’t be underestimated how difficult a two-wheeled speed run like this is; you are always fighting to keep the car balanced right on the edge, as it tries to tip either one way or the other. You need to be conscious of everything, from the camber of the road to the strength of the wind. Thankfully, conditions were excellent and the Range Rover Sport SVR was the perfect precision tool for the job.”
The world record was not the only amazing Land Rover moment of the Festival of Speed, as 70 historic and important Land Rovers took to the hill in what was the largest batch of cars to ever tackle the famous route in one go. From 1948 to 2018, the parade of cars celebrated 70 years of one of Britain’s most iconic automotive brands.
