Huawei Ascend P7 smiles for the camera

Huawei Ascend P7 smiles for the camera
Back in early February, we showed you some press renders and "spy shots" of the Huawei Ascend P7. This model is expected to be Huawei's next flagship Android handset, and today a couple of low resolution photos were leaked by way of China. The phone carries a 5 inch screen with 1080 x 1920 resolution. Huawei is eating its own home cooking as the phone is powered by the manufacturer's own quad-core 1.6GHz Hi-Silicon SoC. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of native storage, and for those needing more storage, a microSD slot is available. Back and front cameras weigh in at 13MP and 8MP respectively, and a 2460 battery keeps the lights on. Huawei's Emotion UI runs on top of Android 4.4.2.

Huawei recently announced that its 2013 net profit rose 34.4%, the company's strongest growth in four years. Huawei is now the third largest manufacturer of smartphones on the planet. But one place where it needs to beef up its distribution is in the U.S., where smartphones are as essential to living as oxygen (yeah, we're over exaggerating, but just by a tad). As we told you earlier this morning, Huawei is opening a U.S. online store, which will initially offer the Huawei Ascend Mate 2 4G. If the store succeeds, the Huawei Ascend P7could end up on the site as well.

First things first though, and the phone needs to be officially announced by Huawei. Since the original leaks about the phone came during the early days of February, we had hoped to see the Ascend P7 revealed at MWC, but it didn't happen. With more photos of the device leaking today, perhaps the phone's unveiling is right around the corner.

Thanks for the tip!

Looks beautiful. Hope the SoC holds up. Not crazy about the UI though. How thin is it?

Running Huawei chipset... :( Ascend P6 was a fantastic phone, but performance was a big letdown. Hopely P7 doesn't have the same problem.

hope it gets software updates as MOST china smartphones are always stuck on the OS when its released
