Authentic-looking rear shell of the upcoming Huawei P7 'Sophia' unearthed
Yesterday, we reported on a possible Huawei P7 'Sophia' render that came to our attention, but today we have something significantly better -- an authentic-looking rear shell of the successor to the ultra-thin Huawei Ascend P6.

The new snaps mostly keep true to the render we saw yesterday, as the shell is indeed quite angular. That said, it does look like the upcoming Huawei flagship refresh will have a tad softer edges than we initially thought, and the material used is rather curiously textured. Moreover, the camera unit on the shell is placed at the top left, instead of centered, as shown in the render. In fact, the placement of the camera sensor/LED flash appears to be nearly identical to the P6. The two differ, however, in the placement and shape of the speaker, not to mention that the rear cover snapped proudly informs of its 4G LTE capabilities -- still a rarity among Chinese handsets. 

The Huawei P7 'Sophia' is expected to come packing a 5-inch, 1080p display, a home-brewed 1.6GHz, quad-core HiSilicon processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 13-megapixel rear shooter. If the Ascend Mate 2 is any indication, however, there will be two versions of the P7 -- one for 3G markets, and another for LTE ones. In the case of the giant Mate 2, only the former sported Huawei's in-house silicon, while the latter had to resort to Qualcomm's more advanced chips to take advantage of those blazing-fast speeds.
