Huawei Japan announced the release of the new non-SIM-locked Android smartphone "Ascend Mate7" that will be released in December.

Ascend Mate7 features the Super 6-inch Full HD LTPS display that reaches 15,000:1 contrast ratio. The bezel width is only 2.9mm, which makes the screen occupancy 83% and keeps the size of the body as compact as a 5.5-inch smartphone (157mm in height).
