The Huawei Ascend P1 has been available in the UK for a few days now. However, ahead of a wider release, the Chinese phone maker is going to ‘enhance’ its handset. Apparently the build quality has been improved, lending the device a more ‘premium’ feel. It’s unclear if that means that the materials used to build it have changed, or just that there’s more focus on quality during the building process itself.
Furthermore, the Ascend P1 will get a 1,800 mAh battery. Interestingly, this was supposed to be its battery’s capacity all along, yet somehow in between announcement and release it got changed to 1,670 mAh (which incidentally is the same capacity as in the P1s – remember that, the world’s thinnest smartphone at one point, which still is nowhere to be seen in stores?).
It’s unclear when the revamped units will make it to the UK market. But if you were about to order an Ascend P1, perhaps you should wait a few weeks – maybe you’ll be lucky enough to get an ‘enhanced’ handset after that.
