On the bright side, this benchmark pass confirms the rest of the internals packed into the P7's attractive body -- a 1080x1920 pixel resolution display, 2GB of RAM, and a 13MP/8MP camera combo. The device in question also runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat, though it should be noted that the kernel (version 3.0.8) is several years old, which could easily mean that further optimizations at launch will deliver a higher score. Otherwise, we should probably expect Qualcomm Snapdragon 600-equivalent performance. That's kind of disappointing if Huawei is looking to play off the P7 as its flagship, and yet we'll be giving Huawei the benefit of the doubt, as we wait and see the kind of pricing the Chinese manufacturer has in mind for the phone. This is especially important now that local rivals are offering top-of-the-line flagships with extremely attractive pricing.
Huawei is expected to debut the Ascend P7 on May 7th in Paris.
