Huawei Ascend P2 To Feature 4.7-inch 720p Display Instead Of Rumoured 1080p
The Huawei Ascend P2 is no stranger to leaks, but the one thing we were truly excited about — its4.5-inch 1080p display — has been scrapped (if it was anything more than a rumour in the first place) in favour of a more standard 720p resolution.
And it’s a reliable shout too, since it’s based on comments from Huawei’s head of mobile Richard Yu, who’s said on Weibo that a full HD display on a sub-5in display makes no sense, since the human eye wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between that and a 720p panel, but you’d still pay the penalty in terms of battery life.
Huawei, in order to achieve record-breaking thinness on the Ascend P2, reportedly chose to include in-cell display technology, much like iPhone 5. This should allow the company to reach the 6.5mm number while maintaining decent battery life.
Considering it’s meant to be a mid-range device, the rumored specifications are certainly impressive, including a 1.5GHz quad-core Hisilicon K3V2 CPU, 2GB of RAM, Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean, 4.7-inch display,13MP camera, and 3,000mAh battery.
The Huawei Ascend P2 will be one of the new handsets to be unwrapped at MWC in Barcelona. If you want to know what is happening at MWC, stay tuned!
