Ahead of its purported launch in Malaysia in early August, we have got our hands on Huawei’s new flagship phone the Ascend P1. Specs wise, the Ascend P1 is a Dual-Core 1.5GHz Cortext-A9 powered ICS device, sporting a 4.3inch Super AMOLED screen with 540×960 resolution and an 8MP camera to boot. Coming with 1GB RAM and 4GB built in memory, the Ascend P1 is also expandable with a microSD card. Th Ascend P1 will also come shipped with VANILLA Ice Cream Sandwich for those of you who are not big fans of heavily skinned versions of the OS.
Lowyat.NET will also be working with Huawei to give away a few of these phones to our lucky readers in an upcoming contest! Be one of the first in Malaysia to own the Huawei Ascend P1! Check back next week for details on how the contest will work!
