Huawei unveiled two large screen Android handsets at this year's IFA 2014 show in Berlin, both joining the Ascend family of devices - the Ascend Mate7 and the Ascend G7. The Ascend Mate7 features a powerful octa-core processor, a 6-inch Full HD display, a generous battery and Android KitKat with EMUI 3.0 on top.

These are the main specs and features of the new Huawei Ascend Mate7:

  • Processor: HiSilicon Kirin 925
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB or 3 RAM; 16 GB or 32 GB internal storage, microSD support up to 32 GB
  • Display: 6-inch IPS capacitive LCD with 1,080X1,920 pixels and 368 ppi
  • Cameras: 5 MP front, 13 MP back with autofocus and LED flash
  • Conectivity: 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n with hotspot and WiFi Direct, Bluetooth 4.0 LE with A2DP and EDR, NFC, micro USB 2.0, GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS
  • Operating System: Android 4.4 KitKat with Emotion 3.0 UI
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.40 pounds; 6.18X3.19X0.31 inches
  • Battery: embedded Lithium-ion 4,100 mAh

According to the official press release, the Huawei Ascend Mate7 "is possibly the market's first 6-inch smartphone with instant single-touch fingerprint access to put an end to password fatigue." This method "enables users to unlock the phone at least 80% faster" than the traditional sweeping recognition variant. 

The 2 GB RAM/16 GB storage version has a MSRP of 499 EUR ($645 USD), while the 3 GB RAM/32 GB storage variant will retail for 599 EUR ($775 USD). Both are expected to hit the market starting from Q3 2014 "in more than 30 countries/territories" but pricing and availability for the US have not been announced yet.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
