The Chinese manufacturer Huawei plans on unveiling their new Ascend P7 smartphone on May 7th, but not before posing for a couple of pictures. You can expect a 5-inch 1080p device powered by a quad-core 1.6Ghz processor accompanied by 2GB of RAM. As for the camera, a 5MP FFC and a 13MP rear camera will be on the device. The P7 will also have a 2,400mAh battery and comes with 16GB of on-storage space, but is expandable via a micro-SD card slot. Check out some of the photos below after the break!
We already know about the Huawei Ascend P7, but it’s been revealed that the company is also working on a smaller variant of the phone, the P7 mini. The device is expected to be officially announced on May 7 alongside the P7.
We’ve been hearing leaks about the Huawei Ascend P7’s specs since as far back as December, but @evleaks has kindly confirmed what we were already assuming. The P7 will sport a quad-core Kirin processor clocked at 1.8 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot, and a 13 megapixel camera with an 8 megapixel front shooter. Pretty solid device for 2014. The design is supposedly less than 7 mm thin and it “basically looks like the P6.” If you liked the P6, you’re in luck, but if you were hoping Huawei would shake up the design, you may want to wait for the next model.
Huawei’s Ascend P7 has been slowly leaking for some time now, but we now have our first quality pictures of the device. From the pictures, we can see that the Ascend P7 closely resembles the previous P6, with a few tweaks here and there.
As a reminder, the Huawei Ascend P7 reportedly has a quad-core 1.6Ghz HiSilicon SoC and will feature a 5-inch Full HD display, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear-camera coupled with an 8MP front facing shooter, and 16GB of internal storage (expandable via a MicroSD card).

Last month, Huawei’s Kirin 920 processor surfaced in an AnTuTu benchmark. When that happened, it was quite obvious that the processor would be found in an upcoming device from the Chinese manufacturer. Today we have a look at that device. In the image above, you are looking at Huawei’s upcoming flagship handset and it looks like it is made completely out of metal.
The image is believed to have come from a software engineer and provided some specifications as well. The Kirin 920 octa-core processor will have an ARM Mali-T628 GPU with it. The display is has an eye-popping 2560×1600 resolution. The camera on the back is rumored to be 32MP.
If these specifications are true, Huawei sure does have a beast on its hands.

Huawei has opened an online shop for U.S. customers based on one product, the Huawei Ascend Mate2 4G. At present, Huawei is only offering potential buyers the opportunity to sign up for their e-mail list to receive updates. Huawei touts the device’s download speeds of up to 150 Mbps on compatible networks. Which ones those may be is unknown since Huawei has not announced any carrier partners and may not ever get to that point due to the U.S. government’s suspicion that the company is actually a front for Chinese spies.

Huawei made a statement on Sunday saying that they would condemn the NSA for snooping if reports of the agency doing so proved to be true. According to documents leaked by whistleblower Edward Snowden, the NSA may have been monitoring executives at Huawei and their communications.
According to the New York Times, a goal of one of the NSA operations, code-named “Shotgiant”, was to find connections between Huawei and the Chinese People’s Liberation Army. Apparently the NSA also wanted to exploit Huawei’s technology and use telephone networks that Huawei sold to conduct surveillance.
A few weeks ago, Huawei’s Chief Marketing Officer, Shao Yang, said that the company is planning to release a Dual OS smartphone powered by Android and Windows Phone and that it would be available in Q2. However, according to a recent report made by FierceWireless, Huawei said that the company has no plans to release a Dual OS smartphone denying a recent statement made by its executive.
“Huawei Consumer Business Group adopts an open approach towards mobile operating systems to provide a range of choices for consumers,” the company said in a statement to FierceWireless. “However, most of our products are based on Android OS, [and] at this stage there are no plans to launch a dual-OS smartphone in the near future.” Read more
A U.S. panel ruled today that HTC, ZTE and Huawei did not violate digital camera patents made by FlashPoint, an Apple spinoff. FlashPoint originally filed the complaint in 2012, and accused all three of the companies of infringing four patents related to phone cameras. One of those patents was dropped as the case moved forward.
In September 2013, a judge found in a preliminary decision that the HTC Vivid and HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE infringed upon one of the patents, while both ZTE and Huawei were cleared. The panel ruled in a final decision that none of the companies infringed on any patents made by FlashPoint.
