Huawei’s IFA press conference is only a couple of hours away. They’ll probably unveil the much leaked Huawei Ascend Mate 7 and the Sapphire version Ascend P7. Ascend Mate 7 has been all over the news in the last couple of days, first we’ve seen some leaked images of the device and then its TENAA (China’s FCC equivalent) certification. This time around we have yet another leak for you, an image which confirms Ascend Mate 7’s processor, Hisilicon octa-core Kirin 925 processor. We initially thought (and TENAA certification suggested) it was going to be a Kirin 920, but it seems Huawei opted for a slightly newer and more powerful version of the chip or they will use different chips in different device versions, which is quite possible. Other than the processor, this screenshot also kind of confirms that the device will feature 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The screenshot came from Chinese social network Weibo, as most China-based leaks do.
Rumors said that we’ll see 2 versions of the device, the 2GB and 3GB variant of this device, so it is quite possible the 2GB variant will sport Hisilicon Kirin 920 and the 3GB variant a slightly more powerful Hisilicon Kirin 925 chip. Other than the processor and RAM, Mate 7 is expected to feature a 6-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display and the aforementioned 32GB of internal storage. 13-megapixel camera is expected on the back and a 5-megapixel sensor on the front of the device. Three versions of the device stopped by TENAA and got certified, MT7-CL00, MT7-TL00 and MT7-TL10, the difference being their network support. It is kind of hard to deny what we’ve said before, this device resembles an awful lot to HTC’s One Maxx phablet. Form factor is spot on and not only that, both devices have a fingerprint scanner on the back. It seems like the 3GB version of Ascend Mate 7 will be a true high-end device. Either way, Huawei’s IFA event is just a few hours away, we should know more details shortly.
