This is the time of year when we expect two things to surface in droves: leaks and rumors. With CES fading in our taillights and Mobile World Congress just around the corner, it's an interesting time for device manufacturers. And while some have already gotten their early-year announcements over with, there are those who have chosen to wait for Barcelona to unveil their newest flagships to the world.

Take Huawei, for example. A recent rumor suggests that its upcoming Ascend P2 will be quite the workhorse with some rather impressive specs:

  • 5" IPS display
  • 1.8GHz quad-core CPU
  • 2GB RAM
  • 8GB built-in storage
  • 13MP rear shooter, 1.3MP front camera
  • 3000mAh battery
  • Android 4.1

And now, thanks to @evleaks over at Unwired View, we're getting our first glimpse of the MWC-bound handset.


It's also worth noting that – aside from the above-mentioned specs – the device is said to pack a 1080p display, contrary to the earlier reports that suggested a meager 720p resolution. Despite coming from a reputable source, however, it's always a good idea to take things like this with a grain of salt.

Fortunately, all the rumors will be laid to rest in one short month at MWC, which begins on February 25th.

    I like it!

    Looks good, except it needs at least 16GB of internal storage since apps can only be installed on internal storage.

      i don't know what Android manufactories are thinking when selecting 8 or 16gb!

      I mean, even competitors are adding more storage, its not like it too expensive and we're like 10 yrs ago using 512mb for massive external storage!!

    Any phone released with only 8gb should not be made unless it's a middle of the pack phone. All high end phones should be released 32gb and 64gb only, especially if they are not adding SDcard slot, but it should have both.

      Disagree. If you have a Nexus 7, you end up using your smartphone pretty much only for texting/social networking, and only when you have to go somewhere without a bag or a jacket and can't bring the Nexus 7.

      This is why the 8GB Nexus 4 + Nexus 7 combo is perfect for people like me. And of course, the fact that the TWO high-end devices together are cheaper than other single comparable high-end smartphones helps.

        I totally agree. I'm rocking a 16gb nexus 4 and a 32gb nexus 7. I don't know why a person would need more space! I also find that with my n7 I finally can make it through a day with one charge on my phone.

      16GB Is Fine Too.

    How In Gods Name Is 720p A Meager Resolution?
