Huawei Ascend G7 announced, 64-bit Snapdragon 410 in tow

Huawei has announced its first Qualcomm-powered 64-bit handset, the mid-range Ascend P7.
September 4, 2014

The Ascend Mate 7 wasn’t the only new phone announced by Huawei this morning during its IFA press event. The second announcement comes in the form of the budget-oriented mid-range Ascend G7.

The G7 is powered by a 64-bit quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor with 2GB RAM, with other specs including 16GB storage (no microSD), LTE support, a 13MP main camera, a 5MP front camera, a 3000 mAh non-removable battery and Android 4.4 KitKat with the Emotion 3.0 UI. Probably one of the more interesting aspects is the 5.5-inch 720p display, which features INCELL technology allowing the device to be exceptionally thin — in this case just 7.6mm.

The Ascend G7 isn’t going to win any awards or impress your friends, but it’s still a capable looking device with a metal chassis, and it is expected to arrive to Europe for a reasonably affordable 299 euros. No word on if or when this will arrive to North America, but we wouldn’t be too surprised if it doesn’t.
