Huawei Ascend P2 press shot leaks, looks quite thin

We’ve been hearing a lot about the Huawei Ascend P2 lately, but it’s been tough to procure a shot of the device. We’ve been hearing that this is supposed to be the world’s thinnest device, but considering how often that title changes hands these days we aren’t sure if that claim has been outdated since Alcatel assumed control of it with the One Touch Idol Ultra.

Well, a new press shot has finally leaked ahead of its Mobile World Congress unveiling, and if it’s anything to go by then we’d say Huawei has a good shot of besting Alcatel’s aforementioned flagship. We don’t get an exact measurement to go along with this leak, but this thing is sleek enough to forget that it’s sitting inside a pair of skinny jeans.

Beauty is mostly skin deep in the mobile world, though, so let’s take a look at what specs we’re supposed to be getting. Rumored are a 4.5 inch IPS display with 1080p HD resolution, a 1.8GHz quad-core processor that’s likely made in-house, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, a 13 megapixel camera on the back with a 1.3 megapixel shooter on the front, a 3,000mAh battery, Android 4.1 and more.

We’ll be expecting Huawei to create a considerable amount of noise about this flagship follow-up to the original Ascend P1, but the company hasn’t been rumored to be bringing anything else to the show. This is a big sign that Huawei is ready to take another step forward in becoming a premium device OEM, but until the company can roll these handsets out on a global scale they’ll have a tough time trying to become the next big name in mobile. Stick with us through the end of February as we expect to get our greasy palms on the beaut you see above.

    8 GB of on-board storage? Really?…………

    • domatau

      if true, one can only assume there’s a micro sd slot or there had better be one!

        Ya, just like we assumed with the nexus 4. They’re pushing us towards the cloud. And im not going for it, you can have my music but there is no way in hell I’m uploading my photos to some server.

          Guys you can get your personal storage at home. The pics I take are automatically uploaded to my buffalo cloudstorage at home when WiFi is enabled(if you so choose). Easily accessible if you want to. There are also more personal and private options out there. I’m don’t mind this but 8gigs really doesn’t make sense.

    This is not a cheap plastic nokia phone :)

    8 gigs? Really? That’s a really nice device with great specs minus the internal storage. 32 gigs should be a standard by now. Memory isn’t that expensive, I wonder why companies don’t catch on already

    I like that it has the % of battery next to battery icon
    but hopefully its more accurate than to the 10%

      Yeah, and it looks exactly like CyanogenMod’s old percentage + battery icon.
      (New CM style is percentage inside a circle, so it takes up less space.)

    Memory card slot?

  • phup

    huawei is really trying !!

  • OptimusL

    The phone looks really good but I don’t like the UI that they have.

      The magic of rooting. This phone would look sweet with a stock android 4.2 ROM on it.

      • OptimusL

        Hell yea. I have pretty big hands and this is a perfect size for me, Huawei is really stepping their game up and it’s nice to see new contenders entering the high-end market.

  • erni74

    really interesting Smartphone, but i fear, that the Huawei Ascend P2 will be again only months later in trade!
