Ascend Mate 7 announced with octa-core Kirin 825 CPU & metal housing



Ascend Mate 7 finally gets official after a really long line of leaks that pretty much gave us an in-depth idea of what to expect from this behemoth of a device.

Huawei is coming strong this fall on the smartphone segment with five new devices. Well, one is the Ascend P7 with a sheet of Sapphire glass for extra protection, which is more of an update to the current flagship.

Getting back to the other four smartphones, besides the all-metal Ascend G7 powered by a 64-bit chipset from Qualcomm, Huawei also announced the Ascend Mate 7, a phablet that feature a 6-inch Full HD screen and two entry-level phones – Y550 and G620S.

Huawei Ascend Mate 7 6-inch FHD (368ppi) display is powered by an in-house made octa-core Kirin 825 processor (4 x Cortex-A15 1.8GHz cores and 4 x Cortex-A7 1.3GHz cores), 2GB of RAM, 16GB built-in storage, 4G LTE, 13 and 5MP cameras and an impressive 4,100 mAh battery. The phablet packs fingerprint scanner similar to what we’ve seen on the Galaxy S5 or the HTC One Max, but it works more like the Iphone 5S’s Touch ID.

The Mate 7 measures only 7.8mm in thickness regardless of the huge display and it weighs in at 185 grams. The new phablet will be available in Silver, Dark Grey and Gold colors from October.
