Huawei Ascend P7 breaks cover ahead of May 7th press event

It’s phone announcement season, apparently, with yet another OEM looking to put on an event soon. Huawei is holding their own hoedown on May 7th, where we expect the company to reveal their Ascend P7, as well as a possible miniature version of it.

The Ascend P7 is Huawei’s most interesting flagship yet. It’s said to be coming with a 5-inch 1080p HD display, a 1.8GHz quad-core processor, 13 megapixel rear camera and and 8 megapixel front camera (yowza!), as well as a 2500mAh battery. You can also expect Huawei to push the bar on slimness, as they’ll be looking to continue their tradition of trimming phones beyond 7mm of girth.

And would you look at that — a new leak already gives us a clean look at the thing. The UI in the photo definitely suggests KitKat, as the Ascend P7 is flaunting those transparent system status bars and navigation bars quite proudly. Anything else we want to know about this phone will likely have to wait until next week.

    Looks like a ripoff of the iPhone , damn Chinese knock offs, only Chinese manufacturer I’m interested in is the One + , this is just lame, no matter how great the specs

    • Foramex

      Why? Everything rectangular with similar camera positioning is iPhone?
      Sue them.
      Wait, I guess you already did.

      • worldclassflame

        Really ? Come on look a little closer it’s not just the phisical design (which you’d have to be blind not to see the resemblance) but check out the ui , it’s heavily and I mean heavily “inspired” ny iOS

      Apple-phobic?

    • guitarist5122

      First thing I thought too. Looks like a straight up iOS ui knockoff

      • worldclassflame

        Yup!

  • Foramex

    This bottom+top bezels make me go crazy…
    If you make it zero-side bezel, do a favor and please keep the ratio.

  • 樊超

    looks good, will be my first 4g phone

  • Tony Lai

    1.8 GHz quad-core? Must be Huawei’s own processor right? PASS~

  • domatau

    from far away, the phone reminds me of older LG or Samsung phones lol

  • toomuchgame441

    iOS meets Android…. ?

    • Mark Wheeler

      Glad I’m not the only one who immediately thought that lol

  • Adam Berg

    From the front, it looks almost exactly as outdated as an iPhone.

  • Kelvin Ti

    Just so fucking ugly!

    China made phones just can’t make it in design!
