After a whole bunch of teasers, Huawei has unveiled the Huawei Ascend Mate7 and Ascend G7 smartphones at the IFA 2014. The Huawei Ascend Mate7 is a nearly bezel-free flagship smartphone with a large 6-inch full HD display and a single-touch fingerprint scanner and much more. The Huawei Ascend G7 on the other hand is their metal-body midrange smartphone with 4G LTE.
