Huawei Ascend P7 spec details leak out


Many smartphone manufacturers now have their flagship hardware on an annual refresh cycle. Huawei is no different, which is why it should come as no surprise that it’s got a follow-up to 2013’s Ascend P6 in the works.

According to a tweet from @evleaks, Huawei is prepping a new device known as the Ascend P7 that “basically looks like the P6.” The Ascend P7’s alleged spec sheet includes the following components:

  • 5-inch 1080p display
  • 1.8GHz quad-core Kirin 910T processor
  • 13-megapixel rear, 8-megapixel front cameras
  • 16GB internal storage
  • microSD card slot
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 2500mAh battery
  • Sub-7mm thickness

To compare, the Ascend P6 features a 4.7-inch 720p display, 1.5GHz quad-core CPU, 8-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front shooters and a 2000mAh battery. Should this leaked Ascend P7 spec list hold true, Huawei’s next flagship ought to be both a respectable follow-up to the Ascend P6 as well as a formidable competitor to other high-end handsets.

There’s no word yet on when the Ascend P7 might debut. However, the Ascend P6 was introduced in early June 2013, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the P7 arrived sometime in the next month or two.

    They should have went with the snapdragon 801 because my note 2 is overclocked to 2.0 ghz and that phone is a year and a half old

      Huawei is reasonably proud of their home brew processors, (to cut down on costs I assume). I have the p6 (so the hi silicone k3v2) and that processor whilst being reasonably slow (tegra 3 level according to benchmarks). It’s more then enough to power the phone without a hitch and in many cases smoother that my father’s s4

    Once again a company is selling a high end phone with just 16gb of internal storage, Flash memory is so cheap 32gb Needs to be the minimum unless it is a very low spec phone which this is not.

    Even with a SD card slot a 16gb mid to high end phone will become full within 6 months or so as not all apps can be moved to sd card.
