Besides its new flagship Ascend Mate 7, Huawei presented a new mid-range phone with a large display at IFA 2014. We are talking about Ascend G7, an original 4G phone which promises high performances and affordability for those who cannot manage to invest in a high-end device.
Huawei chose to use the Snapdragon 410 chipset, a quad-core on 64 bits, tuned at 1.2 GHz. This comes along with a GPU Adreno 306 as well as with a 2 GB of RAM. Its 5.5” display offers a HD resolution (1280 x 720 pixels), yet pixel density is quite low for the dimensions of the screen.
Yet we are talking about a mid-range gadget, so compromises had to be made on some levels. Following the steps of Ascend G6, the fresh G7 offers 4G connectivity due to its Qualcomm MDM9x25 Category 4 modem, ensuring speeds up to 150 Mbps. As for the storage space the phone has a single version with 16 GB internal memory.
Huawei has included the same dual-SIM system which can be found in Ascend Mate 7, with micro-SIM and nano-SIM slots, the last giving the possibility of being used as a microSD slot. The photo/video system is also shared with its brother Mate 7. The same 13 megapixels Sony IMX214 sensor is placed on the device’s back, while at the front there is a 5 megapixels sensor with supra-angular lens.
The 3000 mAh battery ensures a pretty decent lasting life from a single charge and the Android 4.4.2 operating system is also individualised with EmotionUI 3.0. This move is an improvement compared to the former Huawei Ascend G generation, which used the Lite version of the EmotionUI interface.
Ascend G7 will be launched over the course of September in Italy, Spain, Denmark, Hungary, Holland, Germany, Poland, Norway, Mexico and South Africa, so that in the future is launched in other regions. Recommended price from Huawei is 299 euros, which does not include a mobile data pack.
