We’ve heard a lot about the upcoming Huawei Ascend P2, which is rumored to be unveiled at MWC in Barcelona later this month. Today we have learned that Huawei’s flagship device will be looking to reclaim the “world’s thinnest” crown, and is rumored to have IP54 certification which would provide some durability to the new handset.
The Ascend P2 has been rumored to be running on Android 4.1 and touting a 4.5 inch IPS display with 1080p HD resolution, a 1.8GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, a 13 megapixel camera on the back with a 1.3 megapixel camera on the front, and a 3,000mAh battery. While the IP54 certification is not as hefty as Huawei’s IP64-certified D2, the handset will definitely provide resistance against light dust and water spillage.
With it’s higher end specs and thin, graceful design, the Huawei Ascend P2 could help the Chinese company gain some market share in the North American market, where it is currently struggling to gain hold. Huawei has been having a challenging time expanding into markets outside of Europe and Asia, and this high end device could break through to these markets and make Huawei a recognizable brand name in North America.
We will undoubtedly have more details once the device is unveiled at MWC later this month.
