Huawei unveiled a number of smartphones at this years CES including the over-sized Ascend Mate and the high-end Ascend D2. However, one smartphone that didn't feature was the successor to the Ascend P1.
The Huawei Ascend P1 offered a premium specification at an affordable price-point and a new leak spotted online suggests the Ascend P2 will offer consumers a very similar proposition.
The leaked specification, reported by Android Community, hints that the Ascend P2 will have a 5 inch IPS touch-screen display running at a resolution of 1280*720 pixels. That doesn't make it the highest clarity display on the market, but it'll still be a great display.
Huawei's Ascend P2 is expected to be powered by a quad-core 1.8 GHz Hisilicon K3V2 processor and will have a whopping 2GB of RAM. A stunning 13 mega-pixel camera is also expected to be included, while it'll also have a 1.3 mega-pixel front-facing camera for video calling.
As you'd expect from a premium smartphone the Ascend P2 comes pre-loaded with Android Jelly Bean. While, on-board memory will come at 8GB , but the disappointing news is that the smartphone won't support microSD cards.
When the smartphone launches in the UK we'd expect it launch in both 3G and 4G LTE models if the original is anything to go by. While, we're hopeful that models with more on-board memory will be made available because 8GB isn't enough for some users.
The Huawei Ascend P2 is expected to be unveiled at next months Mobile World Congress and will be available in a choice of either Black or White. 3G will be reporting on the event in Barcelona next month, so keep posted to find out more !
