Ahead of IFA, Huawei Ascend Mate 7 pics leak to the web

by: Andrew GrushAugust 28, 2014


While most of us are anticipating the Note 4, the Xperia Z3 and various new smartwatches that will debut at IFA, let’s not forget that there will be plenty of other interesting mobile announcements from companies like HTC, LG and Huawei. In fact, the latter of these companies is expected to announce its third-gen Ascend Mate at IFA next week.

With this in mind, a few photos of the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 have now leaked to the web, showing off a large handset with thin bezels and what could very well be a fingerprint scanner. Not much else can be derived from the images, but it’s still nice to get a closer look at the phablet ahead of its formal announcement. As for the Mate 7’s specs? According to the rumor mill, the phone is expected to feature a a 1.3GHz Kirin 920 octa-core CPU, 2 or 3GB RAM, a 6.1-inch 1080p display, a 13MP rear cam and a 5MP front cam.

What do you think, based on what we know about the Mate 7, are you at all interested in this device? Conversely, does its massive display size turn you off completely?

    Not a bad looking device but still 6.1″ is closer to a tablet than a phone.

  • i_say_uuhhh

    Looks like an HTC one M7 with an uglier back but better looking front.

  • I would be interested especially for that 6.1 inch screen, but the magic question is will it work similar to the current one (Mate 2) and be priced around $300? The price is where you will get a lot of attention when you consider the OnePlus One is $300 too and that has damn good specs. Of course buying a OnePlus One is a different story. Besides I have wanted to get rid of two devices (Smartphone & Tablet) and just have one phablet for everything for a while now.

    My Ascend Mate 2 is an excellent phone, and I’ll consider the Mate 7 carefully alongside the Nexus 6 and One Plus One this fall.

    Oh, check out that HTC One max! No, wait. It’s a Huawei..

    what da hell is a 1.3GHz Kirin 920 octa-core CPU?

  • eliHd

    6.1″ is well too big for a phone. 5″ is the right size for a phone and 5.5″ max.

  • sumit

    Iam using 6″ sony t2 ultra..and wish i cud get more screen size (like 6.3 or 6.5) with even thinner bezzel than t2 ultra..So 6.1 is like treat as long as its bezzels are thin..
