Huawei Ascend P7 variant coming with sapphire display?

A Huawei Ascend P7 variant may be inbound, arriving with a sapphire display.

Huawei Device Chairman and Consumer Business Group CEO, Yu Chengdong claims Huawei has some “shocking products” to release in the near future.

According to the Chinese reporter who was interviewing Yu, he then pulled a variant of the Ascend P7 out of his pocket, which featured a sapphire display.

Yu could therefore be teasing that this is a product Huawei is planning to launch in the coming months, or at least that the company is already experimenting with the material.

The current Ascend P7 comes with a 5-inch full HD IPS LCD display coated with Corning Gorilla Glass, rather than anything like sapphire glass.

Such a display is rumoured to be featured with the iPhone 6 in September, so it would be interesting to see what Huawei does with the material.

Huawei reportedly has a few announcements up its sleeves for IFA 2014 next month, which runs in the first week of September.

Rumour has it that Huawei will pull an all-metal Huawei Ascend D3 out of the bag. It is reported to feature a 6-inch 1080 x 1920p full HD display running on the self-made octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 920 processor with 2GB of RAM.

In the rear, we should find a 13-megapixel camera, paired with a 5-megapixel front-facing alternative.

Its main appeal will be its premium metal design though, which looks like will feature an integrated fingerprint scanner in the back panel.
