Powering the phablet is a Hi-Silicon Kirin 659 octa-core processor paired with 4GB LPDDR4 RAM. Those who opt for the model that offers 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage have to pay CNY2,999 ($450) for it, while those who go all the way and purchase the 6GB/128GB will pay CNY3,499 ($529) for the handset. The device comes with minimal bezels on the sides. It will also feature a 13MP front-facing camera. A 3750 mAh battery completes the package. While the 7X is set to go on sale in India on December 7, the V10 will be launching in the country sometime in the future.
