A bunch of Huawei Ascend P7 live photos leak out a week ahead of announcement
Huawei's flagship refresh in the Ascend P7 is not expected to see its official announcement for another week, but a bunch of new live photos have already cropped up, as people are obviously starting to get their hands on the new device. From the looks of said images, the Ascend P7 is, once again, going to be an attractive device, though it doesn't really distance itself from its predecessor -- the P6. In fact, the differences are quite small.
According to the source, the Huawei Ascend P7 packs a 5-inch, 1080x1920 pixel resolution display, a home-cooked, quad-core Kirin 910T processor, and 2GB of RAM. At the back, we're allegedly looking at a 13-megapixel snapper, while a 8-megapixel cam is what sits at the front. Two SIM slots can be seen in the pictures of the LTE-capable P7, and we're told there's one for a microSD card, as well. Lastly, the P7 is expected to arrive with its own version of Android 4.4.2 KitKat, called EmotionUI.
All considered, the P7 doesn't strike us as a bad device, though many will probably question its ability to compete with the latest flagships from rival companies. For one, the Kirin processor inside has, so far, proven to be something of an equal to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 600 -- a chip that is quickly becoming obsolete at the high end.
