Description

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 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 other specs are 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, a 13 MP camera on the back and a 2420 mAh battery. The handset also features a homebrew LTE radio capable of going up to 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.
