Huawei knocked our socks off during last month’s CES with two very nice high-end Android smartphones – the 5-inch Ascend D2 and the 6.1-inch Mate. So, naturally, when we heard another top-tier device, dubbed the P2, was coming to MWC, we could only get our hopes high.
The first few stories about the Ascend P2 sounded almost too good to be true. The beast was supposed to pack a Full HD 5-inch screen, a quad-core 1.8 GHz CPU and a 3,000 mAh battery. What more could you want?
Nothing, but the stories sounded too good to be true for a reason – they weren’t. True, that is. Instead, it’s been confirmed, courtesy of Richard Yu from Huawei, that the P2 will after all be just another 4.7-incher with a 720p display. Meanwhile, the CPU has been slowed down to 1.5 GHz, while the battery’s capacity has dropped to 2,350 mAh.
Don’t get us wrong, the P2 is still no pushover, with Android 4.1, 1 GB of RAM, a 13 MP rear-facing camera, NFC and LTE, but it’s certainly no Ascend D2.
