Huawei and Arsenal team up with new Gunners-themed Ascend P7

Huawei has announced the Ascend P7 Arsenal Edition, which features the North London club’s crest subtly added to the rear and a host of Arsenal-themed icons and wallpapers.

The phone also comes with bespoke Arsenal-themed menus and dozens of images of Arsenal legends and the iconic Highbury buildings, scenes of the Emirates stadium by day and night, plus celebrations of the club’s 2014 FA Cup win.

There’s 64GB of storage - compared to the 16GB of the regular P7 - which can be increased via a microSD card slot which doubles as space for a second SIM card, perfect for the away games during the Champions League.

Pre-installed apps include BBC iPlayer so you won’t miss any highlights on Match Of The Day, BBC News, BBC Sport and BBC iPlayer Radio, plus the Fifa 2014 game.

A finishing touch includes a clock widget based on the famous Arsenal clock end of the club’s stadium.

Away from the Arsenal and football theme, the handsets is the same as the standard Ascend P7 - that means a 5-inch full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. There;s a 130megapixel camera on the back and a 8-megapixel camera on the front, perfect for taking selfies next time you’re at the game.

Richard Ren, President, Huawei Consumer Business Group, Western European Region, said: "We are two powerful brands and this makes Huawei a great match for a club with the global stature of Arsenal.  We are enjoying a really successful first six months as Arsenal’s Official Smartphone Partner and are excited to announce the exclusive Arsenal smartphone in time for the new Barclay’s Premier League season.  We have a few surprises in the pipeline to make every Arsenal fan’s season the best ever, so watch this space.”

Sadly there's no word yet on a price or release date.
