Huawei Ascend P2 Render Leaks: Super-Thin Android for MWC

Advertisement

Huawei’s MWC event is scheduled for a month from today, on February 24. Just like the company’s CES offerings, we’re expecting a mix of Windows Phone and Android devices, and on the latter front the company has been talking about an incredibly thin smartphone, which will likely arrive as the Ascend P2. The Ascend P1 was only 7.69 millimeters thick, and the P1S just 6.68, but if what we’ve heard about the P2 is correct, this follow-up could measure-in under 6.45 millimeters. As we wait for a chance to see the phone in the flesh, the first press render of the Ascend P2 has leaked, giving us a glimpse at what to expect.

Unfortunately, it’s hard to appreciate the phone’s thinness from the angle of this imagery, but it certainly doesn’t seem too chunky, from what we can see. Supposedly, the P2 will run one of Huawei’s K3V2 SoCs, with quad-core A9s operating at 1.8GHz. We can see evidence of a thirteen-megapixel rear camera here, and we’ve heard mention of other specs like a 4.5-inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, and a beefy 3000mAh battery. If that info on the screen is correct, this could be the highest-density smartphone display around.

Huawei may still have a long road ahead of it to rise to the prominence of Android manufacturers like Samsung or HTC, but with more models like this, it could be headed down the right path.
