We learned earlier today that Huawei is set to go official with the new Ascend Mate7 smartphone on September 4 at the IFA 2014 press event. If you are excited about that smartphone some details on the device has slipped out ahead of the official unveil next month via the TENNA agency in China. At least, the images and details are believed to be of the Ascend Mate7.
TENNA shows two devices making their way through the certification process including the MT7-CL00 and the MT7-TL00. The CL00 device supports GSM/TD-LTE/CDMA networks while the TL00 supports GSM/TD-LTE/TD-SCDMA networks. Other than the network support difference, the devices have identical hardware.
The hardware inside includes a 1.8GHz octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. It’s unclear exactly which processor is under the hood of these devices, but it is thought to be a Kirin 920 or higher. The smartphones have big screens measuring 6-inches with 1920 x 1080 resolution.
On the back of the smartphone is a 13MP camera with the front camera sporting 5MP resolution. Along with these specifications, TENNA also unveiled some images of the devices. One of the images shows the back of the device with what appears to be a fingerprint or heart rate sensor under the camera. We only have a few weeks before we know the official specifications of the smartphone when IFA 2014 kicks off.
