Huawei today announced the Ascend Mate 7, a new Android smartphone that adds a fingerprint sensor for biometric security. The fingerprint sensor, located on the back, can read fingerprints in any orientation and can even read wet fingers. The Mate 7 has a 6-inch IPS screen with what Huawei calls "negative liquid crystal display" technology. The bezels along the sides of the screen are minimal. Huawei calls the look "invisible edge." Its screen-to-body ratio is 83%, meaning the screen takes up a huge proportion of the front face of the device. Huawei added metal to the design in order to give it a more premium look and design. The entire back plate is forged from metal, and the edges are chamfered to give it a high-end appearance. Despite the metal materials, it still supports NFC. The Mate 7 is 7.9mm thick, but houses a 4,100mAh battery. It is powered by an oct-core processor in a big.LITTLE configuration. The Huawei Kirin 925 processor batches four A15 1.8 GHz chips and four A7 1.3 GHz chips with integrated graphics. The Kirin 925 has a co-procesor to manage sensors in low-power mode. The phone has a 13-megapixel camera with BSI and f/2 aperture; 5-megapixel user-facing camera; Quick Charge; and Category 6 LTE. The phone comes in black, gold, and silver.
