Huawei Ascend Mate 7 Launched in Pakistan

Huawei has launched its flagship phablet in Pakistan named; Ascend Mate 7. For the first time, Huawei has featured fingerprint sensor technology in a smartphone. Users need less than 1 second to unlock all operations of the device, with the new single-touch fingerprint-identification technology and the EMUI 3.0 feature.

ARM TrustZone also stores encrypted data of the fingerprint within the chipset for better protection by SecureOS, and prevents direct access by third-parties. However, with the Guest-Mode, the user can share his device with others, allowing them to access some specific applications.

The Ascend Mate 7 comes with a 6-inch FHD screen in a slim frame that measures 7.9mm. Under the hood, it boasts a powerful octa-core chipset for superior performance. It also showcases the fastest LTE category 6 connectivity available with download speeds of up to 300 Mbps. Featuring a longer-lasting 4100 mAh battery for extensive usage on-the-go, the device saves up to 50 percent of the battery by automatically using smaller A7 cores to power standard apps that consumer use at least 80 percent of the time.

It has a 13MP rear-facing camera to capture better party photos in low lighting with Sony’s 4th generation BSI sensor and f/2.0 aperture. In addition, the 5MP front-facing camera adopts the industry-leading 5P non-spherical lens for higher definition and less image distortion and allows for panoramic selfies to be taken. The Ascend Mate7 will be available in three distinct chic colors, moonlight silver, obsidian black and amber gold.

“We are thrilled at the regional arrival of our fastest and most compelling big-screen smartphone experience for consumers; the Ascend Mate 7 that we anticipate will be well received in the region. The smartphone is a true symbol of our relentless commitment to build a better connected word and to ‘Make it Possible’ for people to enjoy our premium quality devices,” said Jiao Jian, President of Huawei Devices Business Group Middle East.

  • Amazing specs I must say. Perhaps copied fingerprint sensor feature from Apple. It should have to be shipped with Android 5.0 Lollipop.

      Lol. Apple copied widgets/notifications menu/CC/additional keyboards/battery usage details/prediction/and perhaps the entire android…. apple has been copying android since years.

      P.S. I’ve never used android, always been an iOS fan. Had 4S, then 5, and now 6+. But facts will be facts.

        STFU You Lying HOE

        • Arsalan Shah

          Lol. Personal attacks wont the change the facts, bro. Always remain in your senses, and act decently. Rudeness wont change anything :)

          • yorgus

            Not many people understand this, unfortunately.

              Been Tell This To Your Mom All The Time Man..

          • PeeDroid MiNi L100

            Whatever.. Fact Will Still Remain The Same “Lying HOE”.

            • Arsalan Shah

              I wish your parents didn’t call you a ”HOE” so many times when you were being raised. Again I don’t think it’s their fault either as I’m sure they were being called the same all the time, hence they kept calling you that. Please learn some manners, this is a public forum, thanks. If your parents didn’t taught you any, refrain from coming here and commenting. Cheers pal.

        Loser !!!! Apple is always innovative ! android is just like shit !!!!!!!!

      • Eli Ehsan

        Yaar Arsalan! Yeh kuch zyada hogaya. for years android didn’t exist either mate. iPhone came few years before Android!! innit?

        • Arsalan Shah

          You are right. iPhone is the first smartphone in the world, no objection there. :) Infact, when iPhone came people were making fun that who would own a phone with such a huge screen, but then all other mobiles/and OS’s (Android) copied it. Yes Apple iPhone/iOS is the one which did start, but since quite some time, Android hs been the leader in innovation. That’s all I said mate. Nothing else :)

          • Gibran Ashraf

            you have a right to your opinion and I respect how you exercise your choice to own an apple, but the resulting blindness in apple’s fake grandeur stinks! First smartphone?? the iPhone came at least 10 years after the first smartphones (including those with touch screens). The iMates, Ijams, the Nokia communicators, the Windows CE based phones. I owned a smartphone long before the iPhone was introduced by Steve Jobs and to be honest the iPhone did not impress me enough to let go of my communicator (they don’t make em like that anymore).

      • asad

        bro wat if someday ur android user girlfriend asks u to send a pic or jpg thru bluetooth… or whatsapp a song to her which she needs immediately… or how do u even download songs and play all different videos in one player…u cant share a charher at any public place… and ohhhh above all… u cant clear the history on facebook or any otjer web for that matter…. apple really is good bro.. no doubt…. lol.. so u need to change ur phone or ur girl friend…. no offence

    • Saad Naeem

      What if I told you android had a phone with a fingerprint scanner in 2011 ( Motorola Droid Matrix 4g).

      • yorgus

        The problem is that there is always a usability perspective. No matter how novel things are, if they are laggy, slow and just likely to work, no one will consider it innovation byt just an idea crudely implemented.

    • panjgoori

      if you do a research Apple copied everything from other OS’s.

    Good pricing much better compared to overrated note 4.

  • S. K

    Those who want a 6 inch handset but don’t want to spend half lac rupees, Sony Xperia T2 Ultra is a great choice for below 30k

    • Fawad Hassan

      I recommend Xperia C3 with 5.5 inch screen and excellent battery life

  • Tipu

    Very well priced. Look like a great gadget.

  • Bilal Iqbal

    Htc design copied…

  • Arsalan Shah

    I agree, android is sh*t. Tonnes of lag, app crashes, and loads of other cr*p. You can use almost all apps on iPhone 4S (w/ 512MB RAM) with nearly the same performance as an android phone with 2GB RAM. Hence I have and always will be on Apple. Insulting wont change anything mate. I have and always will be an Apple fan, you can check all my previous posts, always taking Apple’s side, but facts are and will be facts, even if you or me chose to ignore them :) Innovation has always been in Android’s portfolio.

    • PeeDroid MiNi L100

      You Never Own An iPhone in Your Life!!
      *Control Center Was Never Part Of Android.
      Then Again You A “Lying HOE”, You Peace Of Sh8t!!

      • Arsalan Shah

        Again. Is that your Mom kept saying when you were being raised? :) Seems that is what is the only word you have learned in your life from your parents. Hats off to them :) Tells us what they were referred with and what you have been called all your childhood..

        P.S. Name what you want. Apple calls the Store for Apps ”App Store” Google Calls it ”Play Store” it functions the same. As i’ve always owned/used an iPhone, I can’t really think of calling the name android has for it. (the things which are controlled from the notification bar side or something) But frankly, I’ve seen that in several android mobiles of friends, even before iOS 7 was launched, and having used iOS 6, I know for a fact there was no CC there :) Facts, will be facts. Take care buddy!

          Bi*ch I Think You Obsessed With Write(Riding) Long Things :P
          Only If Amir Bhai Don’t Censor My Comments, I Will Make You Cry.

          • aamir7

            I am just approving your comment to let you know that one more such comment will get you a ban on this website.

            I really like you, but you have to change your tone to be able to participate here.

            • PeeDroid MiNi L100

              Ok, I Will Try My Best To Behave.

              • aamir7

                That’s gr8. Thank you.

          • Arsalan Shah

            Hehe. I think only a Wh*re like you would know how to write (ride) on long things. Your experience is being reflected in your comments. Just hope that experience wasn’t just provided by your family *ouch*

            Don’t worry bro, you wont make me cry as you’re already crying while writing (riding) someone ;)

            P.S. Your obsession with writing vulgarity has reflected your family in every comment of yours – which I’m sure Aamir Bhai and rest of the readers can see!

            • PeeDroid MiNi L100

              Ah Paragraphs…
              Aint Got Time to Read Your BS..

              • Arsalan Shah

                Ofc. Crying babies can’t really do that ;)

                • PeeDroid MiNi L100

                  Oh, Did Your M Wiped My Tears..
                  Go Write A Paragraph On Your Moms Divorce :)

      Loving ur Post scripts… ☺

  • SDKforLumia

    Really good smartphone. Only if they gave Black and Silver options in 3gb/32GB too. My personal favorite color is Silver. Also this Gold version ( which is a dual sim version ) should have been at 50,000 while the simple Black/Silver should be priced at 45,000 PKR,
    Baqi sab theek hai.

  • Guy Chauhan

    Xperia Z is waaaaay better. Love Sony

  • Boyesa

    Price is really good, if they have launched mate 7 at 50k then there Honor 6 is really over priced. Huawei Pakistan should priced mid range phone reasonably.

  • Zahid

    Too much expensive
