    Already at IFA this morning we've seen Huawei introduce the Ascend Mate 7 and Ascend G7, and while those help fulfill some of the Huawei rumors we'd been hearing leading up to this week, there was one more big one: the company had been officially teasing the launch of an updated version of its existing Ascend P7 handset with a scratch-resistant sapphire glass display. Just as we were hoping, today in Berlin Huawei shared new details about its sapphire-enhanced Ascend P7. It's not just sapphire, though: remember how we were curious what would be happening with the P7's back panel? The ...

    Smartphones with scratch-resistant sapphire crystal protecting their displays are no longer the stuff of bank-breaking luxury phones; with the launch of the Kyocera Brigadier, they're soundly within reach of the average smartphone buyer. Still, sapphire's arrived with more of a whimper than a bang, and it remains to be seen if efforts from big names like Apple will be what the material needs to really go mainstream. Another manufacturer has just stepped forward with news of a sapphire-screened handset of its own, as Huawei confirms rumors about its plans for a sapphire-covered version of ...

    Huawei's next Ascend smartphone has been on our minds since last year, but it's only been quite recently that the P7's story has really started coming together. The last five weeks have been full of hardware leaks, brought us a number of pictures of the handset, and have been leading us up to today, for Huawei's scheduled launch event. This morning in Paris the company finally goes official with its latest Android, the Huawei Ascend P7. One of the biggest (or smallest, perhaps) unanswered questions about the P7 has been just how thin it might be, at least compared to the 6.18mm-thick P6. ...

    Earlier this month we got our first look at Huawei's Ascend P7, though with some serious blurrycam quality to the pics. More recently, we heard about some new shots making the rounds, but those were revealed to be fake before we had a chance to share them with you. Today we've got some new imagery that should hopefully be legit, revealing the phone in white and depicting some very official-looking renders. Everything we see here aligns nicely with that earlier leak, and maybe more importantly, these images from two separate sources match with each other, really helping us feel confident ...

    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 ...

    Late last December, as we were still gearing-up for CES, we started hearing rumors about an Ascend P7 from Huawei. With a five-inch 1080p display, a 13MP main camera, and a possible 8MP front-facer, the phone sounded decent enough, even if we still didn't know very much about it. But then we didn't see the P7 at CES, nor did we at MWC. Was it still happening? In early March rumors suggested that the phone could launch in May, but that was the last we heard of it. We're still looking to get to the bottom of its launch story, but today we're checking out some new imagery instead, with a ...

    Huawei brought a lot of new gear to show off at MWC 2014, including its unusual TalkBand B1 convertible smartwatch, but not everything we were hoping to get news of ended up making an appearance; for instance, the Ascend D3 was nowhere to be found. Today we get an update on when the D3 might finally arrive, and also hear a rumor about Huawei's first venture into smartphones with 2K quad HD displays. Supposedly, a 2K Huawei handset is in the works for a launch sometime in September. It would have a five-inch display (with much higher density than a six-inch 2K panel, like we've seen from ...

    Is Huawei really abandoning the US market? That's a big, fat “maybe” for the moment, as we wait to see just how serious some comments made by company execs really are. But even if America doesn't see a new Huawei handset anytime soon, the manufacturer continues to have big international ambitions, and today we get to hear a little about how one of its next major models could arrive. This past summer, Huawei launched the Ascend P6 (above), with a 4.7-inch 720p display, 2GB of RAM, and 1.5GHz HiSilicon quad-core K3V2 SoC. One of the big selling points was its slim build, measuring a ...
