Huawei's previous smartphone offering - the Ascend P6 - was a decent enough offering in terms of specifications and features. And now with that out of the way, the company is trying to score the same kind of success that it attained with the P6 with the massively rumored Ascend P7.
As of now, while the company hasn't mentioned anything about the potential existence of the P7, rumors related to the same have been around for a year now, with new rumors now stating that the the device will arrive running the latest Android KitKat v4.4.2.
Codenamed Sophia, the new Ascend P7 device from Huawei was recently in news after a leaked screenshot for the same surfaced in China showing the Ascend P7 Sophia running Android 4.4.2 KitKat with Huawei's Emotion UI 2.3. and if the image is indeed true, this could be Huawei's first smartphone to come with KitKat out of the box.
As far as specification rumors for the P7 are concerned, it was already rumored that the device could feature a 5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, LTE Cat 4, a 13-megapixel primary rear shooter with LED flash, an impressive 8-megapixel front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a decent 2,460 mAh battery.
Apart from that, the smartphone is also expected to use a 1.6GHz quad-core Huawei HiSilicon 910 processor - which is quite similar to the other rumored MediaPad X1 tablet.
However, there's no word on when the P7 might be announced officially.
Elsewhere, it has also been reported that Huawei has now officially entered the Nepal market to further amplify its business. Huawei representative Li Ji, speaking during the launch program held in Kathmandu, said that the Chinese tech giant, in partnership with Nepal Telecom (the country's State-owned telecommunication service provider), has the potential to bring a positive change in the lives of Nepalese nationals.
"The cooperation between Huawei and Nepal Telecom will bring benefits to telecommunications consumers as well as boosting Nepal' s economic development," said Chinese Ambassador to Nepal Wu Chuntai.
