Huawei launches ultra slim Ascend P7 with 8MP front camera


The Chinese technology company Huawei has launched its latest flagship Android smartphone, the Ascend P7. At 6.4mm the new model is just a touch thicker than its predecessor, the Ascend P6, but it’s still one of the thinnest devices on the market. And at 124 grams the Ascend P7 is also pretty lightweight. With its angular shapes, metal and glass finish, and the camera module in the top right corner, the P7’s industrial design reminds us a lot of Sony’s Xperia Z1 and Z2 models.

In terms of hardware the Ascend P7 comes with components that are in line with the competition’s offerings. Android 4.4.2 and the Emotion UI are powered by a Huawei-made SoC with quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. Images can be composed and viewed on the 5-inch 1080p IPS display. The camera module comes with a 13MP BSI CMOS sensor that is made by Sony. The 5-element lens offers a fast F2.0 aperture that should allow for decent low-light performance.

The Ascend P7 doesn’t come with 4K video recording but the front camera offers unusually high resolution at 8MP. In combination with the selfie panorama mode and 1080p video, this should make the P7 the tool of choice for frequent selfie-takers and other narcissists.

For those who take more pictures than can fit on the 16GB of internal storage, there is an expansion slot that can either take a microSD card or give the phone dual-SIM capability. Power is provided by a non-removable 2,500 mAh battery which comes with a “super power-saving mode” that makes the P7 last another 24 hours on standby with only 10% of its battery left.

What really makes the Ascend P7 stand out is its price. At €449 (approximately US$ 625) it’s cheaper than the similarly specified phones from Samsung, Sony or HTC. You’ll be able to pick one up soon in China, the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Ireland and a bunch of other countries. No detail has been given yet on availability in the US.
