Render surfaces of Huawei Ascend P2

We have seen quite a bit of chatter about the Huawei Ascend Mate, the smartphone maker’s entry into the supersize phone market. That is not the only device that may be of interest to consumers, especially those looking for something more in line with the size of a traditional smartphone. A new render intended for press materials has surfaced showing the Huawei Ascend P2, the successor to the Ascend P1 that was recently made available to U.S. customers via Amazon.

The Ascend P2 is expected to officially debut at next month’s Mobile World Congress sporting a 4.5-inch full 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP camera, all powered by a 1.8MHz quad-core processor. If their in-house developed cpu can keep pace with Snapdragon and Tegra chips, the Huawei Ascend P2 should be positioned to compete for the top-tier of the smartphone market. The Ascend P2 will be joining its close cousin the Huawei Ascend D2, another quad-core equipped smartphone, in the market.

Huawei appears to be ready to start moving their efforts beyond the boundaries of China and engage the global market. Do you think they will be able to make a dent? Would a device like the Huawei Ascend P2 draw you away from some of the more traditional, larger players in the market?
