Fresh off a big showing at CES, Huawei kicked off Mobile World Congress 2013 with the introduction of another solid smartphone: the Huawei Ascend P2.
The Huawei Ascend is powered by Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and it has the Emotion user interface layered on top. This includes a lot of fluid transitions, as well as software tweaks like multiple user profiles, deep DLNA integration and the ability for it to be charged quickly.
Look forward to a 4.7-inch 720p HD display with an ample 315 pixels per inch and a 170-degree viewing angle. The Huawei Ascend P2 is going to be the company's flagship this year and it's powered by a 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and it's all packed into an 8.4-millimeter frame.
Upping its predecessor, the Huawei Ascend P2 has a 13-megapixel camera that can capture HD video. You also get a Flash with that, 16GB of on-board storage, expandable memory via the microSD slot. Huawei is also pushing support for LTE Category 4, which is supposed to be capable of getting 150Mbps download speeds (although, no network currently provides that).
Look for the Huawei Ascend P2 to land in the second quarter for about $530 unlocked, which is not that bad for a high-end device. There's no word if this will come to an American carrier but if it did, look for it to be significantly subsidzed.
