Huawei Ascend P1, slim and sexy dual-core Android priced at Php19,890

Huawei recently launched their slimmest and sexiest phone to date, the Huawei Ascend P1. It’s that beautiful. From afar you won’t believe it’s designed by Huawei.

Holding this phone reminded me of the Samsung Galaxy S2, a slimmer and lighter version of it with angled edges instead of curves. The Ascend P1 is 7.69mm thin and weighs only 110g which you will definitely notice when you hold it.

It has a 4.3-inch SuperAMOLED qHD (960 x 540) display covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 2. Colors are vibrant and sharp which are distinguishable even from afar.

The Ascend P1 runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich but is perfectly upgradeable to Jelly Bean once Huawei rolls out the upgrade. It is powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz processor by Texas Instruments with 1GB RAM. ROM is limited to 4GB but you can expand your memory via microSD.

Huawei claims that photo quality from this phone is really good due to its 8-megapixel BSI autofocus rear camera with dual-LED flash. Saw nothing really special with the photos I took inside the venue using the Ascend P1 though.

The back panel on the Ascend P1 is non-removable meaning the 1670mAh battery is non-user replaceable. The regular SIM slot is located on the top side while the microSD slot is on the side along with the volume control.

This Huawei Ascend P1 should already be available in stores by next week with an SRP of Php19,890.

  • P19??? bwahaha, thanks but no thanks. I’ll wait for whatever Cherry Mobile will have for us folks who want powerful smartphones but not willing to throw that much cash. Judging by the way CM introduces new models, I will not be in a hurry because i’m pretty sure it won’t be long. We’ll see in a couple of months.

      mas mataas naman siguro quality ng huawei compared to cherry mobiles. siguro same ang huawei sa LG in terms of build quality.
