Huawei has confirmed that it is working on Ascend P7 successor and that the handset will feature a sapphire display.

While speaking with Chinese 21st Century Business Herald Huawei Device chairman Yu Chengdong confirmed that the company will continue to release ‘shocking products’ and that it is currently working on the integration of the sapphire display for Ascend P7 successor.

Chengdong pulled out an Ascend P7 fitted with sapphire display. This could mean that Huawei may release an Ascend P7 variant with sapphire display, but we anticipate a completely new handset with improved specifications rather than a spinoff successor.

Huawei Device chairman also shed light on company’s future plans including growth in e-commerce market as well as launch of new online shops.

Chengdong revealed that Huawei intends to be play the waiting game as “it is a marathon type of player”. He added that the company isn’t going to manufacture ultra-low-end white-box devices at the request of the mobile operators.
