Bezel busting Huawei Ascend Mate 7 poses for two more pictures
On September 4th, the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 is expected to be introduced at IFA in Berlin. We've already had the pleasure of seeing the razor thin bezels on the phablet, which carries a 6 inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920.  On back of the device is a fingerprint sensor that quickly calls to mind the scanner on the back of the HTC One max.

A 6 inch FHD screen requires plenty of power to light up, which probably goes a long way in explaining the inclusion of a massive 4000mAh cell inside the device. 2GB or 3GB of RAM is included, depending on the version. The Huawei Ascend Mate 7 will be powered by Huawei's own Kirin 920 processor. A quad-core 1.8GHz version of the chip is under the hood. There is 16GB of native storage packed into the handset, and the back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 13MP and 5MP, respectively.

The Huawei Ascend Mate 7 will be facing some competition from the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, which will be introduced the very day before Huawei's high-end tablet sees the light of day.

Thanks for the tip!

Blatant One Max design from the back? And the funny thing is they didn't even make it look good.

It follows the Ascend D2 looks from 18 months before. Quit acting like design police, there are so many ways 4 rounded corners and a back cover can look, show today's phones to your grandma and she'll say they all look the same.

Even the camera, flash and finger print reader is the same placement/design

And where would you put the camera, the flash and the fingerprint scanner on the back? At the bottom?

I won't call it the poor mans Note, but if sold at a substantial lower cost, it'll rock the sales too. Looks good, Kirin, I'm not sure about.

well, kirin is not as much potent as snapdran is but still better than mediatek

The Kirin 920 should do pretty well, even compared to Qualcomm, but the MT6595 and MT6795 will be much more powerful.

They should sell the mate 2 at 219$ giving it competition with G LTE and selling this Mate 7/3 for 349$ In the states it'll Defineatly sell well .

I just spotted this on the cnBeta article. "by far the best big screen phone around" Is Huawei going to release the Note 4 for them to say that?

This thing would be a beast if it wasn't for the underpowered processor...

16 gigs internal? Hope it doesn't have partitioned sd storage.

The bezel is not that thin, there is a black frame (like in some HTC phones) not visible in most pics

huawei's phones always have 1-2mm black frame all around the screen, their screens are never edge to edge touching with the bezels... I dont know why they disguize the bezels with that black frame

Razor-thin bezel? You know the screen doesn't go to the edge of the glass. That's an optical illusion.

quite true... there is a black frame all around the sreen, which cannot be seen if screen is off.... this black frame lays between the bezel and the screen... technically it is also a bezel but huawei disgize it to make the phone looks having a very small bezel

The Lenovo Vibe Z Pro will beat this hands down, Huawei have no chance of this Mate 7 selling well, it's chip is too weak, even a s615 would have been better than their kirin 920.
