Huawei launches Ascend P7 with 5-inch 1080p screen, 13MP camera

Huawei logoHuawei has unveiled its latest iteration in the Ascend P series of flagship Android smartphones, at a launch event in Paris, France. The Ascend P7 follows on from the thin profile of earlier models by having a thickness of just 6.5mm, while still increasing the size of the display to five inches with a resolution of 1080x1920 and a pixel density of 445 pixels per inch.

Running Android 4.4 with Huawei's Emotion UI 2.3, the Ascend P7 offers LTE connectivity, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, GPS, and a 2,500mAh battery inside its 124-gram (4.4-ounce) casing, which has an aluminum surround and Gorilla Glass 3 protecting the front and back of the device. Inside is a quad-core HiSilicon Kirin 910T processor clocked at 1.8GHz, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage, expandable by up to 64GB via microSD.

The rear camera can be ready to take an image within 1.2 seconds by double-pressing a volume button when locked, while its software allows for up to ten levels of auto-facial enhancement in its beauty mode, and a "Voice Photo" function that accompanies a photograph with a ten-second audio clip.
