Huawei Ascend P7 specs leaked ahead of launch

The Huawei Ascend P7 specs have leaked ahead of the official May 7 launch event.

Although the 2014 Huawei flagship isn’t expected to launch until next month, notorious tech tipster @evleaks has managed to get hold of a near full specs sheet for the Ascend P7.

According to the tweet, the Ascend P7 will run on a 1.8GHz quad-core Kirin 910T processor with 2GB of RAM and feature 16GB of internal storage bolstered by microSD card.

It will also have a 5-inch full 1080p HD display crammed into a body under 7mm thick, which puts it around the same size as the 6.2mm thick Huawei Ascend P6.

Other specs include a 13-megapixel rear camera coupled with a pretty impressive 8-megapixel front-facing camera for enhanced selfies.

From what @evleaks says you can expect the Ascend P7 to look exactly like the current P6 in terms of design and style.

All these specs line up with the AnTuTu benchmarks that emerged earlier this week, although the processor clock speed is a little higher than the 1.6GHz previously tipped.

It is also expected to run on a 2460mAh battery, offer 4G LTE, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity and be made from “exquisite materials”. We strongly expect it to run the latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS come launch.

Sadly for Huawei, those leaked benchmarks suggest that the P7’s processing powers will lag far behind the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One M8 and iPhone 5S.

Even the new OnePlus One mid-range handset has a better AnTuTu benchmark than the Ascend P7’s leaked results.
