The Huawei Ascend P7 name isn’t new. We’ve been watching the rumors and leaks for some time now, but in a somewhat surprising move, Huawei has unveiled the mini-model. We tend to first look to compare a mini-model to the regular-sized version, but in this case Huawei has yet to make that announcement.

Anyway, the Huawei Ascend P7 mini has been unveiled this morning in Germany with availability coming across Europe. Specs for the Ascend P7 mini include a 4.5-inch qHD (960 x 540) display and quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor with Adreno 330 graphics, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. The handset also has a microSD card slot, 2000 mAh battery and 5MP rear-facing camera.

Huawei has the handset running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with the Emotion UI sitting on top. Simply put, the Ascend P7 mini looks like it will be filling the mid-level lineup. We have yet to see any official confirmation on the specs for the regular-sized Ascend P7, however we can look towards some of the earlier rumors.

There has been plenty of rumors for that particular handset — including a sighting with the Tenaa (the Chinese equivalent of the FCC). That listing included some images of the device, and looking towards those earlier rumors brought talk of a 5-inch 1080p display and quad-core 1.6GHz HiSilicon Kirin 910 processor. Other (still rumored) specs for the Ascend P7 include 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.

Huawei has also been doing some teasing. The website has been counting down to an upcoming announcement taking place in Paris. There is still about 8 days left on the countdown, and for now Huawei is offering “what is next” and “unlock possibilities” as the teasing taglines.
