The Huawei Ascend P7 is now official and is ready to pick up the duties as the company’s 2014 flagship. Compared to its predecessor, the Ascend P6, the new flagship brings a much better screen as well as major upgrades in the design and camera departments.
First up, the phone is slightly larger with a 5″ 1080p display covered with protective Gorilla Glass 3. The phone’s measurements are 139.8 x 68.8 x 6.5mm, which is slightly taller, but thinner and narrower than the Samsung Galaxy S4, for instance. The Ascend P7 weighs 124 grams and that’s spot on for a phone of this nature.
The back of the phone is also covered with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 underneath which lies a micro pattern that Huawei made with a seven-stage surface treatment. There’s also a notification LED above the display.
Further down the specs list, there’s a Huawei-made HiSilicon Krin 910T chipset sporting 1.8GHz quad-core Cortex-A9 CPU, Mali 450 GPU and 2GB of RAM. The phone runs Android 4.4 KitKat garnished with the company’s Emotion 2.3 user interface. Read more here:
