The original Huawei Ascend P7 was launched four months ago, almost to the day (on May 7th to be exact). With attractive design and powerful hardware, the phone was, and still is, an interesting offering capable of successfully competing with many famous brands. However, the Chinese smartphone maker apparently thought that it still has more to offer and has just announced a new version of the Ascend P7 called Sapphire Edition which was first rumored about a month ago and was later confirmed by the manufacturer itself.
As mobile making companies try to attract more and more customers and overtake Apple, we witness more devices hitting the market, including smartwatches and cell phones with amped up specs. The China based mobile and telecommunications equipment maker told Engadget in an interview, that it is planning to launch a sapphire screen mobile device Huawei Ascend P7 Sapphire Edition soon.
In the latest interview for the Chinese 21st Century Bussiness Herald, the Huawei’s CEO Yu Chengdong announce the company’s bold plans for the nearest release to the world, including plans on introducing a spin-off of the popular flagship Ascend P7 sporting extremely durable sapphire glass display. On the basis of what he said, we may notice that the manufacturer wants to join premium league in mobile electronics taking on leaders such as Vertu or Apple.
Earlier today at an event in Paris Huawei made official its newest Android flagship smartphone, the Huawei Ascend P7. A successor to the Ascend P6, the Ascend P7 is slim, attractive looking and packed to the fullest with advanced hardware and redesigned software. The phone is expected to go on sale some time in coming weeks in Europe and Asia for a price of 449 euro without a contract which would be about $625 at today’s rate of exchange.
Ever since the Huawei Ascend P6 was released last year, it has been speculated that the phone will have a successor. And indeed it will. Known as the Ascend P7, the first rumors about the handset started popping out in early February. The timing seemed to suggest that the device would make an appearance at the MWC 2014, however, to disappointment of curious spectators and potential users, Huawei didn’t bring the Ascend P7 to the show. Anyway, over the last three months new leaks have been appearing regularly on the web, the last one including even live photos of the smartphone unveiling its premium design.
