IFA 2014 Huawei teased its upcoming smartphone, which will most likely be the Ascend Mate 7, in a video today. The 6.0-inch device, which is said to feature a fingerprint scanner and automotive integration of some sort, was spotted undergoing certification a China's TENAA earlier this month, and will be officially announced at Huawei's press conference next week at the IFA.

The teaser video, titled "7 Mates For 7 Dreamers", further strengthens rumors of the new device being called the Ascend Mate 7. According to the listing on TENAA, the device will feature a 6.0-inch full-HD display (there is a rumor of a QHD variant as well), Huawei's Hisilicon octa-core Kirin 920 SoC that has four 1.8 GHz Cortex A15 cores and four 1.3 GHz Cortex A7 cores, LTE Category 6 connectivity and 4K video recording.

Other alleged specs include 16 GB internal memory with microSD card slot, 2 GB RAM, 13 MP camera at the rear and a 5 MP shooter at the front along with Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Huawei is also said to be launching a sapphire display version of the Ascend P7 at the IFA, with an alleged image of the device making its way to China's Weibo microblogging service.

We'll be on the ground at the IFA to bring you all the coverage from the trade show. In the meantime, what do you guys think of Huawei's teaser video?

Huawei's latest IFA teaser reinforces Ascend Mate 7 rumors


I am sorry but there is absolutely nothing in that video to suggest another ascend phone.


It really wasn't a suggestion, they beat you over the head with it.

The Ascend Mate 2 really is a great phone. It performs like a champ. But the cameras are very lackluster. Especially the front camera. For being a self promoted selfie camera, it's pretty abysmal. I mean, you can't even adjust the brightness -.- Haha Let's hope the one on this device is better.

I love my Mate2. 2-3 days battery, the camera isn't bad, using a different camera app ;)
Don't care about the OS, JB4.3 is STABLE and runs fast. 300 bucks, kind of hard to turn down.

I agree.. The Mate 2 is an Excellent Device.. I've almost pulled the trigger on that one many a time...
Too Bad they did not give this 7 a Snapdragon 805 Engine.. That would have made it an instant hit with the development community.. If it's also priced right like the Mate 2..
I'm good right now with my LG-L90.. With it's Rooted Snapdragon Quad-Core, Animations Fix and Nova Prime it's fast as hell.. and it's selling for only $99.60.. It's an even bigger steal than your Mate 2 :-)
