Huawei P7, now with sapphire
This is no ordinary Huawei Ascend P7 that I'm holding.
In fact, the difference is that is has a Sapphire screen.
I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET here at CES 2015 in Las Vegas.
Looking at it you can't really tell that it has a Sapphire screen because it is just as transparent and responsive as the kind of glass that you would find on any other smartphone.
But, it is here.
Main benefit is it's supposed to be much harder than regular glass and much stronger too, for accidental drops.
Now, why would Huawei wanna do this?
Because they can.
Sapphire's the talk of the town right now, so they experimented with one of their top products to include this new material.
Apart from the screen, the other difference that you're gonna find between this and the regular edition of the phone is the color.
This one has rose gold finish on the side and the sort of black slate grey reflective surface on the back.
Now for the main specs, we've got Android 4.4 on a five inch 1080p display.
It looks really pretty.
You've got a 13 megapixel camera on the back with flash, happy to see that.
And then an eight megapixel camera on the front.
Inside, we've got a 1.8 gigahertz octo-core processor.
Now this phone is really beautiful.
The original G7 looked really great.
I've seen it in white, but this is the only one to have these really cool colors.
So if you want them, you have to get this.
It is currently available in Asia and the Uk for 488 pounds.
That's equivalent of about $760.
Once again, I'm Jessica Dolcourt for Cnet, you can check out more details about this and other phones that we're seeing here at CES, at cnet.com.
