Huawei has revealed its new Ascend P2 smartphone at the 2013 Mobile World Congress.
The new phone features a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor and LTE Cat 4, which offers download speeds of up to 150 Mbps.
The firm claims that the 4.7-inch Ascend P2 is the world’s fastest 4G LTE smartphone.
“Ascend P2 is the perfect combination of elegance and power, and further proof that there’s no need to compromise when desiring a perfect smartphone. It is evidence of the outstanding smartphone experiences and great technology that we are committed to bringing to consumers globally,” said Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group.
The HUAWEI Ascend P2 will be on sale in France through Orange in June 2013.
“The technological capabilities of the HUAWEI Ascend P2 will enable our customers to have the fastest access to all their content, with speeds up to 150 Mbps on our brand new 4G network,” said Florence Paour, device marketing director, Orange France.
The Ascend P2 runs on the Android 4.1 operating system, with Huawei’s own Emotion UI 1.5, and is powered by a 2420 mAh battery and 1.5 GHz quad-core processor. It will be available globally around the second quarter of 2013.
