The Huawei Ascend P2 has appeared in a couple of leaks over the last month and the smartphone has now officially been unveiled at this years Mobile World Congress.
The flagship feature of Huawei's smartphone is that it takes 4G speeds to a new level thanks to LTE Cat 4 support. This enables the Huawei Ascend P2 to download at speeds up to 150 Mbps which compares to the 100 Mbps maximum on the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3.
Huawei's Ascend P2 isn't a one-trick pony because overall it has a stunning specification which is headed-up by a 4.7 inch IPS display. The stunning touch-screen runs at a resolution of 1280*720 pixels , is made from Goriila Glass 2 and features Magic Touch technology.
A 1.5 Ghz quad-core powers the Ascend P2 , while the smartphone has 1GB of RAM and 16GB of on-board memory. Android Jelly Bean comes pre-loaded on the mobile which works in combination with Huawei's Emotion UI custom-interface.
The Ascend P2 has a 2420 mAH battery and "Quick Power Control" technology which reduces the smartphone battery consumption. While, it also comes with a 13 mega-pixel rear-facing camera with HDR support and a 1.3 mega-pixel snapper for video calling.
The design of Huawei's Ascend P2 is simple but stylish with the whole smartphone being just 8.9mm thick. You'll be able to choose between White or Black when the smartphones launches in June.
How does the Ascend P2 compare to the main players ?
The Huawei Ascend P2 has a pretty reasonable specification and should be more affordable than Apple's iPhone 5 or Samsung's Galaxy S4. However, the only thing setting Huawei's device apart is the improved 4G performance which doesn't make a great difference to real-world performance.
3G will be reviewing the Huawei Ascend P2 later in the year so keep posted to get the full lowdown on Huawei's Android smartphone.
