Huawei devices aren’t typically ones that we see come to U.S. shores, and with the case of Huawei’s new Arsenal Edition of the Ascend P7 it’s no different. The Ascend P7 is not only a fairly high-end device with some pretty great specs on the inside, it also has a rather stylish allure that will probably appeal to anyone looking for a more fashionable smartphone. Huawei is reportedly preparing for a launch of a new version of the Ascend P7 for the Malaysian market with the Arsenal Edition, and by the looks of the image it actually looks pretty sleek with the thin stature and metal frame.
For those that are unaware, Arsenal is a UK football team that was initially started back in 1886, although back then it wasn’t known as or called Arsenal, but rather Dial Square, only later to adopt the name Royal Arsenal. For any football fan(soccer, not the football we know here in America obviously)the memorable Arsenal emblem should strike a chord when seen on the back of the new Arsenal Edition Ascend P7. What’s interesting is that Huawei would seek to manufacture a device on their line up that wears a branding of a UK Football club that has been established more than 90 years ago officially, and that they would launch the device in Malaysia no less and not the in the UK which would not only make perfect sense but potentially do very well.
The device on the inside is said to be exactly the same as the original Ascend P7, so the differences stop at the outside and is merely a device for the more style enthusiastic. That means consumers who purchase the device in Malaysia can expect the same 4G LTE compatibility that is seen on the Ascend P7, the same 13MP auto-focus camera on the back, and the HiSilicon Kirin 910T Quad-core CPU clocked at 1.8 GHz with a Mali-450MP4 GPU running the graphics. It also still sports the same 5-inch IPS display with 1080 x 1920 resolution and 441 PPI(pixel density)so there really is nothing different about the phone besides its looks, and perhaps the price. Huawei hasn’t announced the price yet, but it will most likely cost a little extra to get your hands on one of these. The launch date is also absent at the moment, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the release was sometime in the near future.
