Huawei Ascend P1 costs €450 in Europe, should be launched soon
Already available in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Australia, the Huawei Ascend P1 has yet to make its debut on European shores. Huawei’s official word is that the handset should be released in Europe before the end of this month. And it looks like it will happen, as the P1 has appeared both at Amazon Germany, and Unieuro Italy.
The two retailers display similar prices for the Ascend P1: €454.35, and €€449,90, respectively. Unfortunately, for now they can’t say exactly when the device will be in stock.
At only 7.7 mm, the Huawei Ascend P1 is one of the thinnest smartphones out there. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and features a 4.3 inch qHD display, HSPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, 8MP HDR rear camera, 1080p video recording, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, and a dual-core 1.5GHz TI OMAP 4460 processor.
In addition to hitting Europe, the Ascend P1 will also be released in Japan, reportedly starting tomorrow, as the Emobile GS03.
