Web site Blog of Mobile is allegedly reporting that there will indeed be an LTE version of the Huawei Ascend P1, which sports a very similar specs sheet, but will accommodate a slightly larger battery. In addition, it appears as though they’ve managed to obtain a leaked image of the device in question – though, a quick look at it might have some people scratching their heads. For some odd reason, it reminds us of the Google Nexus S by its overall shape.
For starters, this LTE enabled variant drops the squared corners that we see with the Ascend P1, and instead, it opts to go with a rounded approach with its corners. Secondly, one will easily recognize the trio of Android capacitive buttons underneath its display, which is alarming considering it’s clearly running Ice Cream Sandwich – albeit, it could simply be a prototype unit at this point.
2,000 mAh battery. Rather than using a TI OMAP CPU like its siblings, this version opts to go with a Snapdragon instead, while its 2,000 mAh battery is a natural justification.
If it can somehow retain its overall figure without increasing by much, it surely will be impressive feat when it arrives in the flesh – then again, we’ll be a bit cautious with this one until more concrete information arises from the ground.
