The P7 includes a 13-megapixel camera with a Sony sensor inside. The Sony sensor makes use of back-side illumination and has a wide aperture of f/2.

Huawei created a feature for the camera called Voice Photos, which will record a 10-second audio clip to accompany a series of pictures. The P7 also includes an 8-megapixel user-facing camera for self portraits.

Huawei says the user-facing camera can shoot wide panoramas. The P7 runs Android and has Huawei’s Emotion user interface. Huawei added support for worldwide LTE 4G networks.

The Ascend P7 launches in a wide number of markets this month, but Huawei didn’t specify if or when the P7 might arrive in the U.S.
