Huawei Ascend P2 announced with a slim body and large battery
Just as rumored, the Huawei Ascend P2 will have a major selling point being one of the thinnest big-screen handsets out there at 8.4 mm only. Powered by a 1.5 GHz K3V2 quad-core processor, the Ascend P2 features a sufficiently large 4.7" HD 720p screen, eschewing the Full HD trend of late, which is hardly a big deal.

The display specs are otherwise decent: 500 nits brightness, viewing angle of 85 degrees, 315 ppi, covering 71% of the standard NTSC color gamut and with 1000:1 contrast ratio.

The other notable features are 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, a 13 MP camera on the back capable of Full HD HDR video, and a largish 2420 mAh battery, making you wonder how did they fit such a module in the anorexic body of the Ascend P2. 

The handset also comes with a homebrew LTE radio capable of going up to the blazing 150 Mbps download speeds - if your network provider can supply them, that is. 

Ascend P2 runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Huawei's own Emotion UI on top, which features Flipboard-style navigation. The phone will be available globally from the second quarter in all EU, starting at the very reasonable €399 SIM-free, which is about $525.

The design of Huawei's devices are always really boring and ugly

"the thinnest big-screen handsets out there at 8.4 mm..... large 4.7" HD 720p screen" did phonearena somehow forgot about the Xperia Z?

"One of the thinnest," but nice excuse to keep pushing the Xperia Z. It's because of people like you that we can't go one article without people like you jamming the Xperia Z down our throats! =)

It's funny how leaving out a few words can change the entire meaning of a phrase.

Wow, I can't edit my own comment?

Maybe you should read correctly before commenting.

We've heard enough of the Xperia Z; 2012 technology in 2013. Sure, it's thin and IP57 certified, but other than that it's nothing special; it's actually pretty lack-luster

No, its 8.4, phonearena got that wrong in the first place, they've edited the info now

Oppo Find 5 is cheaper... $500

Also Oppo comes with the 1080p 5" display, 8.9mm thickness (just barely thicker), 2500mAh battery, 2GB ram, and otherwise comparable specs.

Not too impressed at that price point.
