Huawei Ascend P7

Now available in New Zealand

New Zealand, September 23: Huawei’s newest flagship smartphone, the Ascend P7, which combines stunning form with seamless function, is now available in New Zealand.

The Ascend P7 boasts a 5-inch INCELL screen with full-HD and 441 PPI. It is powered by Huawei’s own Hisilicon Kirin 910T Quad-core chipset and 2GB of RAM.

This is packed into a stylish and slim 6.5mm body encased in aluminium and Gorilla Glass 3. The rear continues the sleek glass look with Huawei’s 7-layer surface treatment which adds a spun metal texture under the glass finish – an exclusive Huawei design feature.

Creating the optimum user experience is Google’s Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat operating system, enhanced with Huawei’s Emotion UI 2.3 which allows users to apply custom themes to transform the Ascend P7’s look and feel.

Photographers will love the new 13MP rear camera with BSI for incredible low light shots. Social media fans will love the new 8MP front facing camera with the new panoramic selfie function for group shots.

The Ascend P7 brings the ultimate in connectivity with Cat 4 4G LTE and penta-band 3G. To ensure you stay connected even when it’s a long time between charges, the Ascend P7 includes Huawei’s most advanced power saving features, allowing you to extend battery life as required.
