Just a short while back we had heard that the Huawei Ascend P1 was coming to the UK (by way of Vodafone) in early-August. And well, it looks like the handset will also be arriving SIM-free. The SIM-free variety will be available by way of Clove who have recently announced a specific release date — August 6th. In addition, Clove has offered up some pricing. The SIM-free Ascend P1 will be £370.80 with VAT being included. Those who wish to move forward with a purchase can do so as of today as pre-orders are available with Clove.
In terms of the Ascend P1 specs, this handset is running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and sporting hardware features to include a 4.3-inch (540 x 960) Super AMOLED display, dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, 1670 mAh battery, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera and an 8 megapixel rear-facing camera. Finally, we recently spent some hands-on time with the Ascend P1 so if you are interested, the review can be found here.
