Huawei has launched the successor to last year’s Ascend P6 smartphone. The new Huawei Ascend P7 is an Android-powered 4G-capable handset with a 5-inch toughened HD display, a 13 megapixel rear-facing camera and an 8 megapixel front-facing camera.
Richard Yu, CEO of the Huawei Consumer Business Group, said “Huawei’s relentless commitment to developing premium quality smartphones over the past three years has paid off. We are now ranked number three globally in terms of smartphone shipments, and our brand recognition is growing steadily in key regions such as China and Western Europe. Today, the launch of Huawei Ascend P7 once again challenges existing industry standards by redefining smartphone design, camera experience, and connectivity, to provide people with an unprecedented mobile experience.”
Launching in the UK this month, the Huawei Ascend P7 is expected to sell for €449 (£367) SIM-free.
