It looks like Kyocera isn’t the only mobile underdog that could precede Apple in unleashing a super-tough smartphone with sapphire coating, as Huawei’s CEO unorthodoxly confirmed such an improved version of the [easyazon-link asin=”B00K6GMYDE” locale=”us”]Ascend P7[/easyazon-link] to members of the Asian press.
During an otherwise routine interview, Richard Yu whipped a never-before-seen P7 spin-off out of his pocket to further prove a point he was making: Namely, that Huawei will continue to release groundbreaking devices (or, as he emphatically put it, “shocking” ones) in order to ultimately win the mobile marathon.
Yes, ladies and gents, Huawei is in this race for the gold medal, and its head honcho doesn’t seem to care how long it could take for the Chinese company to reach number one. Now, as for that sapphire-covered Ascend P7, we have every reason to believe a formal introduction is right around the corner.
Berlin’s IFA 2014 tech fair is near, and the creators of the original P7 last week sent out invites for an exclusive press event on September 4. Among the gathering’s stars, we expect to see an Ascend Mate 3, plus one or two new Android tablets.
And of course, the iPhone 6-rivaling tweaked Ascend P7, which we hope will come with a couple extra updates to the table. A beefier processor, 3 GB RAM, maybe even a Quad HD display. Fingers crossed.
