Huawei Ascend P7 priced at €419 in Europe, should be released in June


Last week, Huawei announced its latest Android flagship smartphone, the 5-inch Ascend P7, saying that this would cost around €450 in Europe. However, it turns out that the handset’s price will be lower.

Amazon Germany is currently taking pre-orders for the Ascend P7, asking €419 (about $572) for an unlocked unit. That’s considerably less than the European prices of other flagship smartphones like the Galaxy S5 or HTC One M8 (both sold for around €550 - €600). Of course, the Ascend P7 is a bit underpowered, as it’s using Huawei’s own quad-core HiSilicon Kirin 910T processor instead of a Qualcomm SoC like most flagships.

It seems that Amazon Germany will have the P7 in stock starting June, and that’s probably when the handset should also be widely available in Europe and other regions.

We already reviewed the Huawei Ascend P7 here, concluding that it’s a good-looking smartphone (and really thin, too, at only 6.5mm) with plenty to offer - including LTE connectivity, Android KitKat, and an 8MP front-facing camera.
