Huawei Ascend P1 Priced-Out In Anticipation Of European Launch

Huawei is currently working to build-up its reputation as a manufacturer that produces some pretty high-end Android devices. While in the past, we might have seen plenty of Huawei-made models stripped of their identities and repackaged with carrier branding, a push towards devices with more impressive hardware is underway, including models like the Ascend D Quad, D1, P1, and P1 S. Today, our attention turns to the P1, as Huawei readies the handset for its European debut.

We learned a couple months back that Huawei was planning to bring the P1 to Europe sometime this summer. The phone is now showing-up for pre-order in several nations, where it’s fetching the equivalent of about $565. For that kind of money, you get a phone built around a dual-core 1.5GHz OMAP 4 (similar to the Galaxy Nexus, but running faster) with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD display. This isn’t the super-thin variant (that’s the P1 S), but at just under 7.7 millimeters, the P1 is still pretty darn svelte.

Despite pre-orders being open, we still don’t have a solid idea on just when the phone will be available in these nations. We’re clearly getting close, but just how many weeks we still have to go is anyone’s guess.
