In just under a fortnight, on May 7, Huawei is set to reveal its Ascend P7 to the world. We’ve been talking about the phone since last fall, the presumed successor to the super-thin Ascend P6, and have heard a number of rumored specs, as well as got the chance to check out some possible in-the-flesh pics of the handset itself. As we wait for the model to go official, we get a little update on the P7’s hardware, going into further detail about what we might expect.
For instance, we’ve been anticipating that the P7 would follow the P6’s lead in being a very thin handset, but we never had a precise measurement, nor did the leaked pics we got to see show the phone from the side. While a hard figure continues to elude us, today’s leak describes the phone as thinner than seven millimeters, at least putting it in the same ballpark as the 6.2mm-thick P6.
The processor mentioned here also sounds like an upgrade from what previous leaks suggested, with the phone using a new quad-core HiSilicon KIRIN 910T running at 1.8GHz. Other details we’ve heard before return, like a very high-res front-facing 8MP shooter to complement the 13MP main camera, as well as a five-inch 1080p display – no 2K this time around. And despite that very thin build, look for a battery of around 2500mAh – not huge, but nice for the size.
Style-wise, we’re told the handset will largely resemble the P6, an assessment we’d say is accurate enough based on the last leaked images.
