Tonight’s headlines are full of leaks and upcoming events. Huawei’s P7 just can’t stay off the news, even if it is to be announced in 2 days. We also have Microsoft joining the list of manufacturers that will announce new devices this month.
Here come more leaked images of the Huawei Ascend P7. The device has already been teased by the company, leaked by tech ninjas and it should be announced in less than 2 days! This device is far from being camera shy and we are getting yet another close look at it today.
As you can see below, this images show a design that displays a much more iPhone-inspired look (both in hardware and software). It looks very thin and well-packed, so expect it to also feel very premium.
Opinion: It’s hard to tell whether I will like this device or not. Some leaks show an amazing design, while others don’t quite convince me. This can happen when we see both press renders and actual photos, so we will have to wait for the announcement and see.
Microsoft has just started sending out press invites for an event in New York City, this May 20th. They are calling it a “small gathering” about their Surface line, but we doubt it will really be small. Many speculate that this has something to do with a smaller Surface tablet.
We still don’t know all the details, but rumors state this could be a 7 or 8-inch device running Windows RT.
Opinion: Like many of you, I believe Windows RT is a bit out of place. I would like to see more Surface devices with Windows 8 Pro, instead of the lighter version of the OS. Maybe Windows has something up their sleeve.
Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi might have some competition this May 15th. Huawei is also holding an event this day. There is no word on what the announcement could be about, but this event will be quite interesting.
It seems odd that Huawei would pull such a move only a week after announcing the Huawei Ascend P7, which is said to launch on May 7th.
Opinion: I have no idea what Huawei is planning for this day. While the Ascend P7 has been all over the news, there has been no other significant device being leaked.
