Described as a “beautiful crafted, elegant metallic designed” smartphone, the Ascend G7 has made its debut. This is the more affordable of the two devices introduced at IFA 2014 by the Chinese phone maker.
The Ascend G7 sports a 5.5 inch 720p INCELL display. The display brings together a digitizer, touch input and LCD into a single layer giving the device a very thin display. Amazingly, the device is extremely slim measuring at 7.6 mm.
The gadget is a mid tiered phone but with a high end design. It is made completely out of metal and runs on a 64-bit quad-core Cortex A53 processor at 1.2GHz. It is mated with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of built-in storage and 4G LTE-enabled with a Cat 4 modem built inside.
The Ascend G7 features a 13 megapixel BSI camera with f2.0 aperture. The camera is equipped with a a 28mm wide angle lens, IMAGESmart Engine 2.0, and is capable of capturing 1080p videos. The front shooter is a 5 megapixel camera mated with 88-degree wide angle lens and of course. There is a beauty mode for both cameras as well as for both pictures and videos. There are other features included in the camera such as Ultra Snapshot that captures instant pictures in only 1.4 seconds and a Lytro-like All-Focus feature that allows you to shoot now and focus later.
The device is powered by a 3000mAh built-in battery for 600 hours of standby, Ultra-Saving power mode, smart gesture control. Lastly, the Ascend G7 will be available in three metallic colours – gold, silver and black.
Pricing and location availability was not divulged by the company. We’re hoping it turns out to be a budget breaking deal with an affordable priced phone with a premium design
