Huawei Glory 7i With 180 Degree Rotating Camera Goes Official

Just like previous rumors and leaks have hinted during the past couple of weeks, Huawei’s Glory 7i main attraction is an 180 degree flipping/rotating camera. But don’t think that the camera only has two fixed positions. Nope, according to Huawei, the camera can be manually positioned by the user at whatever angle he feels appropriate.

Staying in the camera department, the company assured the public that mechanism is very durable. You would need to flip the camera 136 times a day and it still wouldn’t break in the first two years of use. The sensor is also protected by a sapphire lens.

As far as the camera specs are concerned, Huawei 7i sports a 13MP, Sony-made, backside-illuminated sensor, with F2.0 aperture size and 28mm wide-angle shooting capabilities.
