Finally the wait is over for Indian Huawei lovers, as the popular online retailer Flipkart has listed (see here) the Huawei Ascend P1 on their website with a price tag of Rs. 12,990. As per the listings the phone will be releasing around the 3rd week of August.
Huawei is undoubtedly one of the best technology companies in the world, and it is well known for its creativity and advanced mechanisms. Earlier we published here that it is developing 5G technology, which is expected to be ready by 2020.
The Huawei Ascend P1 is supported by 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor while having a 4.3-inch long Super AMOLED qHD display screen. It can offer resolution of 540*960 pixels to the users and it features Gorilla Glass 2.
The phone runs on Android 4.0 mobile operating system, and it sports 1GB RAM and 4GB internal storage which can be expanded by up to 32GB with microSD card support. It sports an 8-megapixel rear camera (dual LED flash) and a 1.3-megapixel front camera for video calls. It is backed up by a decent 1670mAh battery.
It has to be noted down here that this smartphone was first introduced at CES 2012, which means it is being launched in India almost after a year and a half. It seems like finally Huawei has understood the value of the Indian smartphone market, and started to give its priority towards it.
Airtel solely launched the LTE version of the Ascend P1 in October 2012. It was claimed to be the first ever LTE-TDD smartphone of India. Airtel had even gone further to announce that the phone would be especially build to use Circuit Switched Voice Fall Back technology in order to support voice calls over 3G. However, the fact is that phone is available in very few selected outlets, as it was not launched widely all over the country.
