Huawei Ascend P1 launching in April, China gets first dibs

Though attention has shifted to Huawei’s quad-core devices since January, the Ascend P1 still looks to make a splash. The handset, which was first unveiled at CES, looks to make its debut in April according to news out of a recent Huawei event. The phone will launch first in China and follow up with releases in Europe, Russia, Japan, and Australia. A potential North American release was not detailed.

The Huawei Ascend P1, though specced with a dual-core processor and 4.3-inch qHD display, is lacking in wow factor compared to the ultra-thin Ascend P1 S (featuring near identical internal hardware) and the quad-core Ascend D Quad. It still looks to be among the best Huawei has ever offered. Considering the manufacturer’s history of entry level devices, that’s not a hard mark to meet.
