    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.
