After a strong CES appearance with its 6.1-inch Ascend Mate and the 1080p 5-inch Ascend D2, Huawei could treat us to an octa-core Ascend P2 if rumors are to be believed.
This suggested upcoming device would also manage to retain a very thin body. We don’t know much about the possibility of an octa-core setup. It is possible that it uses a big.LITTLE or similar layout where four power-efficient cores (like the A7) are combined with four performance cores (A15), to technically arrive at the octa-core name.
In either case, Huawei has grown to become the world’s third largest smartphone maker in 2012, following Samsung and Apple, and that definitely means something. The company is still to become known in the States, and this Ascend P2 might be one step towards this.
