Huawei Ascend P7 Sapphire Edition is almost here

Huawei is expected to announce that its latest smartphone will be bringing a super strong sapphire screen, soon.

The Huawei Ascend P7 Sapphire Edition should not only sport the second strongest material on the planet protecting its screen but should also come with 4G LTE.

The phone will be available soon in China with details expected to be announced shortly.

We're almost used to seeing smashed front screens on phones now despite Corning's Gorilla Glass strength. Sapphire glass is often used on the small lens over a phone's rear camera. This is why it's so rare to find a scratch on the lens that would ruin photos.

Other manufacturers are expected to start using sapphire glass too including Apple on its new iPhone 6. The use of this strong glass also comes at a time when smartwatches are beginning to enter the mainstream - also needing sapphire protection.

Huawei recently announced its Ascend P7 Arsenal Edition smartphone which came with Arsenal football club markings as well as special Arsenal wallpapers.

If this new P7 has the same specs as previous editions we can expect it to come packinga 5-inch, 1080p screen. Inside should be a quad-core 1.8GHz Cortex-A9 processor backed by 2GB of RAM and 16GB storage plus microSD to 64GB. The rear should boast a 13-megapixel autofocus camera with LED while the front will have an impressive 8-megapixels for high-resolution selfies.
