It’s Huawei’s turn to make an announcement at the ongoing Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain. And to do this, the company just revealed the Huawei Ascend P2 which it claims is the world’s fastest smartphone. Boasting of a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and LTE Cat 4, Huawei says that their smartphone is capable of providing an ultrafast web experience with download speeds of up to 150 Mbps.
Aside from that, the Huawei Ascend P2 continues the legacy of the Huawei Ascend series which means that the Ascend P2 will sport the same slim form factor of the Ascend P1. Its dimensions measure a mere 8.4mm thick and it has an infinity edge 4.7-inch IPS HD in-cell touch display using Corning Gorilla Glass.
The rest of the features of the Ascend P2 are impressive as well. These include Android 4.1 OS on top of Huawei’s Emotion UI 1.5, 2420 mAh battery, 1.5GHz quad-core processor, NFC, Huawei’s Quick Power Control (QPC), Automated Discontinous Reception (ADRX) power-saving technologies, a 13MP BSI rear-facing camera with HDR, 1.3MP front-facing camera for self-portrait and video shooting and a dedicated camera key.
Huawei’s CEO of Consumer Business Group says:
“Ascend P2 is the perfect combination of elegance and power, and further proof that there’s no need to compromise when desiring a perfect smartphone. It is evidence of the outstanding smartphone experiences and great technology that we are committed to bringing to consumers globally.”
