Japanese carrier Emobile has recently announced the Huawei GL07S, which just so happens to look quite a bit like the Ascend P2. Well, the handset looks pretty similar based on these recently leaked images anyway. We are expecting Huawei to officially announce the Ascend P2 during Mobile World Congress, but until then — it looks like we have a bit of a mystery on our hands.
The details were picked up by the Greek language Techblog who noticed that Ematic posted a list of specs for the GL07S along with the official image (seen above). That being the case, it looks like the handset will be launching with a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 and powered by a quad-core 1.5GHz processor. The handset is also looking like it will be running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with other specs to include 4G LTE connectivity, 32GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, a 2350 mAh battery, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, GPS, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera and a 13 megapixel rear-facing camera.
The one catch here, with the exception of the display size, the remaining specs don’t seem to be lining up with previous rumors. Previous rumors were showing the Ascend P2 as launching with a 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, 3000 mAh battery and 8/16GB of internal storage. This latest bit shows the RAM as being less, the battery being less and the internal storage being double. Earlier reports did however have the rear-facing camera as being 13MP. For comparison, you can see the previously leaked images below.
Bottom line here, based on this it is looking like either those earlier leaks were inaccurate or that Huawei is prepping two versions of the Ascend P2. The good part here, Mobile World Congress will be starting soon. The show will kick off this coming Sunday, February 24 in Barcelona. And don’t forget, Android Community will be on-site to bring you the latest news coming out of the show.
