Huawei makes the Ascend P2 official, available 2nd quarter 2013


Huwaei just made the Ascend P2 official, which is of course the follow up to last year’s Ascend P1. It will feature a 4.7-inch 720p (1280 x 720) Infinity Edge display at 315ppi, a quad-core 1.5GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, 13 MP BSI rear-facing camera with HDR, a 1.3 MP front-facing camera, 2,420 mAh battery, and Android 4.1. It comes in at 8.4mm thick and is touted as the fastest LTE phone on earth with up to 150Mbps utilizing LTE Cat4. Just like all Huwaei phones, it will feature their own Emotion UI on top of stock Android.

We probably won’t see this one hit the U.S., but for those of you in Europe, you should be able to get your hands on one during the 2nd quarter for roughly €399 ($526). Hit the break for the full presser.
