It looks like Huawei is finally getting ready to take the veil of its upcoming flagship device, the Ascend P7. The Chinese-based manufacturer has now released a teaser video for “what is next”, which ends by announcing that Huawei will be holding a special press event on May 7th in Paris.

So what can we expect from the Ascend P7? Although nothing is official just yet, previously leaked specs suggest the handset will offer a quad-core 1.6GHz Huawei SoC, a 5-inch 1080p display, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, 13MP rear cam, 8MP front cam and a 2460 mAh battery.

Interestingly enough, the Ascend P7 isn’t the only handset Huawei intends to show off on the 7th of May. Huawei has announced the Ascend P7 Mini ahead of the press event, with plans to fully show off the device in Paris alongside its bigger brother. The Ascend P7 Mini features a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 SoC, 1GB RAM, a 4.5-inch display with 960×540 resolution, 8GB storage, microSD, an 8MP rear cam, 5MP front cam, LTE support and a 2000 mAh battery.

We’ll be sure to bring you more details about both handsets once we learn more, so be sure to stay tuned to Android Authority.

    Down side is the price. Even though i would jump on this because of the 5 inch screen the price will most likely be more than the OnePlus or Nexus device.

    I bought Huawei ascend g300 3 years ago it was one of the worst phone ever. I understand its not a flagship device but the standard of the build quality takes it to another low level and The camera omg! Dont even go there. I might gove Huawei another go. We’ll see

    Last years flagship specs at best. If I were in the market for a low to middle range device it might be an option, but I won’t pay more than $250 for whats on offer.
    One of my current phones is the Huawei Ascend Mate and it has been
    a great device which I use for video and sound, mainly because of its size and volume output.
