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.
