Huawei Ascend P2 Just Got a Whole Lot Less Interesting


If Huawei ever wants to rise from the shadows and become a brand that gets recognition on the level of a Samsung or even an HTC, it needs to be bold. We’ve already seen some progress along that front, with the company pushing boundaries with its giant Ascend Mate. One of Huawei’s upcoming Androids also had us pretty excited, with rumors about the Ascend P2 not only looking to a super-thin construction, but an envelope-pushing compact 1080p display. While we first heard that it could set new records as a 4.5-inch component, more recent rumors placed it at 4.7 inches instead, on the level of the HTC One. That could still manage to grab Huawei some attention, but now a company exec has gone and burst our bubble, confirming that the P2 will have a 4.7-inch 720p display.

Sure, 720p is a great resolution for 4.7-inch screens, but that might not be enough to get the Ascend P2 the recognition Huawei would like. The sub-seven-millimeter thickness could still be a trump card, but we’ve got some doubts about that spec too, at least from the look of some of the photos that have been going around.

Huawei should be debuting the P2 at the MWC in just a few days, and for all we know, maybe it will have something to share that does manage to get us excited; we’ll certainly be finding out soon.
