Huawei is next in line for hardware announcements at IFA 2014, and it brings another mid-ranger to it’s already huge line of decently-priced smartphones. This one is dubbed the Ascend G7, and should be available in select markets in September of this year.

G7 boasts a 5.5-inch, 720p IPS display. It has a quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear-facing camera, and a 5MP front-facing camera. It’s running the most recent version of Android, 4.4 Kit Kat, and comes with Huawei’s custom Emotion UI 3.0. What is most impressive, is the all-metallic chassis. We don’t see that type of build quality out of mid-rangers too often.

It will cost €299 ($387), and will make its way to Germany, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Hungary, the Netherlands Turkey, Poland, Norway, South Africa and Mexico, with other markets to soon follow. We’ll have to wait and see how the device compares to the competition this coming September!
