Huawei Ascend P2 available from Three for £310

Mobile phone operator Three has put the Huawei Ascend P2 smartphone on sale on PAYG for a mere £299.99 plus a £10 top up. While it is not as slim as its thinner just announced counterpart, the Ascend P6, the handset still remains, according to company, its best-of-class smartphone.

The Huawei Ascend P2, which was unveiled at Mobile World Congress earlier this year, comes with a quad-core system-on-chip, the HiSilicon K3V2 clocked at 1.5GHz. It has also 2GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 4.7in in-cell display with a 1,280 x 720 pixel resolution, LTE capabilities, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a microSD card slot, Corning Gorilla Glass 2, a 2,420mAh battery, BSI sensor, a dedicated camera button, full HD video recording and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with a layer of Emotion UI.

Unlike the Ascend P6, the P2 is compatible with 4G, comes with NFC, has a camera with a higher resolution and can accommodate a 3.5mm port. Altogether, it is a cracking piece of technology that finally brings some much needed competition against the Nexus 4. Check out our hands-on preview of the Huawei Ascend P2 smartphone here.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
