Not too long ago, a sapphire edition of the Huawei Ascend P7 was confirmed by one of the executives of the company. If you’re waiting for the handset, you’ll be glad to find out it’s officially announced by the company, and will hit the retail shelves in China in the coming weeks. The device will come with a “Huawei Ascend P7 Sapphire Edition” moniker and may just be limited to China at the moment.
Other than the sapphire display, it’s similar to the standard version of the handset, but comes with 4G LTE support, which apparently should work with China Telecom. There’s a 5-inch 1080p display on board, with a quad-core HiSilicon Kirin 910T clocked at 1.8GHz, 2GB of RAM and 16GB internal storage with a microSD card support.
There’s a 13MP camera for photos and videos, 8MP front-facing camera, WiFi, Bluetooth, a 2,500 mAh battery and runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat as its operating system with Huawei’s Emotions UI on top of it.
There’s no word about the availability date nor the pricing of the handset, but we may get to see it at the IFA 2014 in Berlin next week. Additionally, there’s no word if the Sapphire Edition will hit retail in other global markets or not. Stay tuned, we’ll update you as soon as we get more information.
