The Huawei Ascend P7 smartphone has made its way into the Indian market and it’s already up for grabs online through a couple of e-commerce websites. The handset is certainly late as it was originally launched back in May, but you can now purchase it by shelling out a whopping Rs 27999.
That price is way higher than what we expected and frankly absurd. The company’s own Honor 6 flagship which offers beefier specs and better features is selling for just Rs 19990, so why would anyone even think about purchasing the Huawei Ascend P7?
The reason behind such a high asking amount is mainly because Huawei hasn’t officially brought the handset into the country. But then again, why would Flipkart approve a device that’s being imported? We’d also like to point out that the listing makes no mention of warranty and the retail tag is the same as what eBay seller cart2india (specializes in importing stuff into the country) is asking.
The Ascend P7 is the successor to the popular P6 handset and it dons a gorgeous design with the front and rear panels featuring a glass coating. The backdoor also has a micro-pattern textured finish which makes the phone all the more alluring.
Here’s what the Huawei Ascend P7 has to offer in specs:
– 5-inch 1920 x 1080 pixel display
– Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS
– 1.8GHz quad core Kirin 910T SOC (Cortex A9 + Mali 450)
– 2GB RAM, 16GB stooge
– NFC, WiFi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, FDD LTE
– 8MP front camera, 13MP rear snapper
– 2500mAh battery
– 139.8mm x 68.8mm x 6.5mm
– 124 grams weight
The Honor 6 is clearly the better choice mainly because you get a faster processor, a larger battery, more RAM and warranty, all for a substantially lower price. If you still insist on purchasing the Huawei Ascend P7, head over to Flipkart or eBay.
