Huawei Ascend Mate 7 smartphone first look + product demo video


The Huawei Ascend Mate 7 packs in a 6-inch display with nearly no bezels

The nearly bezel-free Huawei Ascend Mate 7 smartphone is the latest flagship smartphone from Huawei and it has just reached Malaysian shores. Thanks to Huawei Malaysia we were able to get some hands-on time with it. At first glance, it seems like the Ascend Mate7 has nearly no bezels for an edge-to-edge touchscreen experience with it's 6-inch full HD 1080p display. Unlike the previous flat and thin Ascend P7, the back feels more rounded, providing a more comfortable grip. Trying out the single-touch fingerprint sensor on the back, we found it to work fairly well, about as fast as the single-touch Touch ID fingerprint scanner on the Apple iPhone 5S and upwards. The overall look for the Ascend Mate7 is very premium with most of the body made up of a shiny aluminum alloy. Huawei Malaysia expect the standard 2GB RAM with 16GB storage version to arrive on 14 November 2014 for RM1799 but do check out our first look photos below:


Featuring a 7.9mm metallic body the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 is tough, durable, stylish and doesn't bend very easily


The fingerprint sensor is quite accurate, with a single touch to quickly unlock or wake up your smartphone


The Huawei Ascend Mate 7 packs in EMUI 3.0 and if you notice the shortcut keys at the bottom, is also ready to support Android 5.0 Lollipop which is due for update in Q2 of 2015
