Ascend G7 Fills Out Huawei's Mid-Tier Roster
Huawei today announced the Ascend G7, a premium mid-range device that boasts a 5.5-inch 720p HD screen and support for worldwide LTE networks. The device is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor and a 3,000mAh battery. Huawei says the battery lasts two days under heavy use, but the G7 still includes a low-power mode that can squeeze out 24 hours of battery life by cutting down on the number of running apps, screen brightness, and other functions. The G7 includes a 13-megapixel main camera and a 5-megapixel user-facing camera with an 88-degree field of view for selfies. The G7 has a mostly metallic finish and will be available in black, white, and gold. It goes on sale in select markets in September with other markets to follow. Huawei didn't say if the device would come to the U.S.
