LIVE: Huawei's MWC 2013 press-conference
Here we are, guys! The events of MWC 2013 have started, and it's now time to enjoy Huawei's press-conference, where the Chinese manufacturer is expected to unveil its newest smartphone - the Ascend P2. And if your interest meter has a tendency to drop quickly upon hearing "Huawei", note that the Ascend P2 isn't a phone that can be easily ignored. The Huawei Ascend P2 is rumored to be powered by a speedy octa-core chipset based on ARM's big.LITTLE architecture, much like Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa, which was announced at CES 2013.

As you can see, even the smaller players aren't afraid to play with the big guns at MWC, so it'll surely be a great fun watching Huawei's press-conference. Stay sharp, the even begins at 8AM Eastern | 7AM Central | 6AM Mountain | 5AM Pacific | 1PM GMT.
