Huawei’s Ascend P7 Passes Through TENAA Certification

Huawei’s Ascend P6 was a very good-looking device indeed, with an incredibly thin frame of just 6.2mm and a successor to the thin device is on its way in the form of the Ascend P7. We might not have heard much from Huawei when it comes to new device releases, but they did just release two new tablets in February during MWC and we’re sure the P7 is to be a quality successor to a fashionable and capable device like the Ascend P6. The P7 has recently received certification for China after passing through the TENAA.

These latest batch of photos show a different looking device from shots that surfaced a little while ago, and we can see that the curved bottom from the P6 is still here as we might have expected. According to the TENAA certification, the P7 is going to be powered by a HiSilicion Kirin 910 Quad-Core CPU clocked at 1.6 Ghz, 2GB of RAM and feature 16GB internal storage. The display seems to be have been upgraded as well, jumping in size to 5-inches and delivering a 1080p resolution, up from the P6’s 720p resolution. The P6 recently saw a build of Android 4.4.2 surface, so hopefully the P7 will launch with the latest version of Android onboard.

As the P series is known for being more fashionable than anything else, it’s no surprise that the P7 looks to feature glass sheets on the front and rear of the device. With two pop-out trays on one side of the device, we’re thinking this model could be a dual-SIM version or feature expandable storage. The expandable storage route is more likely, as the P7 is only listed with 16GB onboard, enough for areas with decent cloud services, but not for others. TD-LTE is onboard, but there’s no word yet if this will make into Huawei’s US store along with the new Ascend Mate 2, but we’re hoping so.
