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thinnest device, but considering how often that title changes hands these days we aren’t sure if that claim has been outdated since Alcatel assumed control of it with the One Touch Idol Ultra.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.
