Huawei Ascend Mate7 Monarch Edition



The original Ascend Mate7 was already revered as one of the best phones ever by Huawei, but the Monarch Edition raises the bar further with more premium features. The use of sapphire crystal glass on this new edition is particularly noteworthy.

Many people think Corning Gorilla Glass is the strongest device screen protection available. Wrong! In fact, Corning Gorilla Glass comes nowhere near sapphire glass in terms of strength and scratch resistance.

Sapphire glass is super-strong and highly scratch-resistant. This was the reason why those who knew its value looked forward with high expectation of it being used on the iPhone 6, but they were to be disappointed by Apple. But you can now have it with the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 Monarch Edition.

Another improvement on the Huawei Ascend Mate7 Monarch Edition is the storage. The sleek smartphone comes with an impressive 64GB on-board storage, with 54GB available to the user. A microSD card can be used to extend the storage to a whopping 182GB!

However, you are limited to just gold colour for this edition, compared to three available for the original Ascend Mate7.

Other details

Other specifications for the Huawei Ascend Mate7 Monarch Edition are the same as it was for the original version. The phone features a 6-inch display with HD (1080p) resolution.

Huawei Ascend Mate7 Monarch Edition has a 13 megapixels camera on its back as well as a 5 megapixels snapper in front and it is provided with a 4100mAh battery as well as a fingerprint sensor.
