Huawei Ascend P1 to be available starting April
Announced back in January as one of the world’s thinnest smartphones ever, the Huawei Ascend P1 will be launched next month.
ePrice went to a Huawei event recently, and found out that the Ascend P1 should be released in China first, starting mid-April. After that, the handset will reach other markets, including the UK, France, Germany, Sweden, Russia, Japan, and Australia. North America wasn’t mentioned.
Apparently, there will be three color versions of the Ascend P1: black, white, and pink.
The Ascend P1 runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and features a 4.3 inch qHD (960 x 540) display, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 8MP rear camera with full HD video recording, 1GB of RAM, and 4GB of internal memory. An LTE-enabled version of the P1 might be also introduced at some point. Unlike the newer Ascend D Quad, which has a Huawei-made quad-core processor, the Ascend P1 comes with a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU from TI OMAP.
