Huawei just announced the successor to its last year’s flagship, the Huawei Ascend P7. It’s sleek and beautifully designed just like before.
This time around, Huawei bumps up the screen estate to the 5-inch mark and puts in a 1080p in-cell display. Aside from that, the camera also got an upgrade from 8MP to 13MP with a f/2.0 aperture. There is still no 4K video-recording though which is already becoming a norm with flagship devices. The front-facing camera is now 8MP with cool features like panoramic selfie or a group selfie — a “groufie” — and a 10 level auto-facial enhancement in beauty mode.
On the processing side, the processor gets a speed bump to 1.8 GHz while the RAM is still at 2GB. The latest Emotion UI 2.3 is also on-board with new fun features that should enhance your experience like power saving modes and customizable lock and home screens.
