As promised, Huawei Ascend P2 was unveiled at the MWC 2013 event in Barcelona.
Ascend P2 is running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS with Emotion UI v1.6 and features a 4.7-inch 720p IPS screen with 312 ppi ratio protected by Gorilla Glass 2. The phone relies on a quad-core Huawei processor running at 1.5GHz, 1GB RAM and 16GB of built-in storage, sadly there’s no support for MicroSD cards. That’s not all – there is a 13MP camera with BSI sensor and 1080p video recording + HDR support for both pictures and videos, 2x zoom without any loss in quality and as a bonus there’s a dedicated hardware camera key, sweet huh!
About the connectivity Huawei Ascend P2 offers 3G, HSPA Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, NFC and of course LTE (supports LTE Cat4), in fact that’s the fastest speed on a smartphone so far – 150mbps! The battery is with a capacity of 2420mAh and supports Huawei’s Quick Power Control for quick charging, the technology also reduces the power consumption more than 25% compared to current smartphones.
Huawei Ascend P2 will be available on the market later this year with a retail price of about 399 euros.
