Photos of the metallic Huawei Ascend P7 chassis appear

Last year's Huawei Ascend P6 was the slimmest Android phone for its time, and with a svelte metallic chassis at that, indicating that Huawei is stepping up its design game. Now the company is prepping a successor, Ascend P7, and if the latest leaked photos of the chassis are any indication, it will again feature a more premium design than your typical plasticky Android handset.

The Ascend P7 is said to feature a 5" 1080p display, 1.6GHz quad-core HiSilicon chipset, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB of storage space, a 13 MP rear camera, and an 8 MP front camera. The battery is rumored to be with the possible capacity of 2460 mAh. Ascend P7 is expected to have the latest Android 4.4 KitKat for an operating system, and the smartphone should be available in pink, gold, silver, and black. 

As you can see on the right, the new P7's chassis will sport a version of the Ascend P6's attractive rectangular design, with metallic back, edges and buttons. The phone is expected to be announced May 7th in Paris for a price that remains a mystery so far. Huawei's upcoming flagship is also claimed to feature 4G LTE, so it will be interesting to see how successfully the company has paired its homebrew chipset with LTE cellular connectivity.

Hmm the circular power button looks familiar, oh wait it is from the Xperia Z series. Oh it is from China, that pretty much explains it.
