The Huawei Ascend P2 will be unveiled during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month, that’s certain because it’s been confirmed by the Chinese company’s boss not long ago. The one thing we know for sure about this device is that it will be less than 6.45 mm thin. That’s going to make it the thinnest smartphone in the world, just like its predecessor from yesteryear once was.
Since MWC is fast approaching, today we bring you the first rumored specs for the Ascend P2, courtesy of ChinaSmartphoneReview via HDBlog. Before you continue reading, make sure you have that oft-required grain of salt nearby, for the following specs are in no way officially confirmed. That said, they do seem somewhat plausible.
Apparently, the P2 will come with a 5-inch 720p IPS HD touchscreen, a quad-core K3V2 1.8 GHz processor, a 13 MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash and full HD 1080p video recording, a 1.3 MP front-facing camera, 2 GB of RAM, 8 GB of non-expandable storage, HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 3,000 mAh Li-Polymer non-removable battery. It should launch running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
The processor is one of those made by HiSilicon for Huawei, and is in effect a quad-core Cortex-A9 design. Huawei plans on using the Cortex-A15 architecture later this year. Interesting is the fact that, while being the same processor seen in the Ascend D2, here it’s overclocked by 300 MHz. And the D2 is supposed to be the flagship offering. This could be slightly confusing, or it could just be wrong. We’ll see.
If these specs are real, the Ascend P2 looks like it’s going to be similar in many respects to the D2 – the screen size (though not the resolution), the camera, as well as the battery capacity. All that while being significantly thinner (the Ascend D2 is 9.9 mm thick). Is that even possible? Stay tuned.
