Huawei Ascend P1 launched by China Unicom with Emotion UI
The Huawei Ascend P1 has been officially launched by China Unicom today. The Ascend P1 has support for that carrier’s HSPA+ network, and all the other specs that the internationally-announced version has.
The phone has been priced at 2,799 yuan, which is $441, or €350 at today’s exchange rates. This Ascend P1 is notable for another reason, though. It’s quite probably the first Huawei smartphone to ship with the company’s newly unveiled Emotion UI overlay for Android (which we presented earlier today).
Huawei’s Siri competitor comes with support for Mandarin, the Shaanxi dialect, Cantonese, the Sichuan dialect, and others.
The Ascend P1 has a dual-core 1.5 GHz TI OMAP 4460 processor, a 4.3-inch 540×960 touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera, a front-facing 1.3 MP camera, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of built-in storage space, microSD card support, and a 1,670 mAh battery.
