Huawei Ascend P7 flagship smartphone on sale this May
The Huawei Ascend P7 has been formally announced in Paris as the company’s flagship smartphone for 2014. Well so far anyway.
Of course, it’s the successor to the well-received Ascend P6 and brings some worthwhile changes and updates with it. The smartphone runs on Android 4.4 KitKat interlaced with Huawei’s own Emotion 2.3 user interface.
Ascend P7 key features
The Huawei Ascend P7 is just 6.5mm slim, and Huawei say this makes it one of the slimmest 4G phones around today. The Ascend P7 comes with a 5-inch FHD touchscreen display at 1920 x 1080 resolution, 445ppi and 16:9 aspect ratio. The P7 is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 front and rear covers.
The processing power comes from its Huawei manufactured Krin 910T chip set including a 1.8GHz quad-core Cortex-A9 CPU, Mali 450 GPU and 2GB of on-board RAM.
Ascend P7 snappers
The snappers weigh in with a 13MP rear-facing camera and an impressive leading 8MP front-facing one. Low lighting results are improved on the 13MP rear camera by IMAGESmart 2.0 software and its f/2.0 aperture. This creates clear, rich pictures at night or indoors.
The Ultra Snapshot function enables the user to be camera-ready 1.2 seconds after double-clicking the down volume button whilst the 8MP front camera comes with a panorama function for panoramic selfie and "groufie" shooting. Users can also take a selfie and "groufie" video with the 1080p HD video playback.
Ascend P7 availability and pricing
The Ascend P7 will be stocked by Vodafone, Three and O2 and come in black, white, and pink colour versions.
The flagship Huawei smartphone will be priced at under £370 and will be ready to buy in late May.
