Huawei in May 2014 at an event in Paris officially unveiled the Ascend P7. It's a 5-inch Android smartphone sporting a 1080p display and Huawei's Emotion UI interface. It also was touted as the thinnest LTE smartphone available — a mere 6.5mm thick. The Ascend P7 has a 13-megapixel rear camera with back-side illumination, and an f/2.0 aperture. The front-facing camera is a whopping 8 megapixels.

The whole thing is covered in Gorilla Glass 3 and is powered by a 2,500 mAh battery.

The Ascend P7 was to launch in May for €449 (US$625). Launch markets include much of Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
