Chinese handset maker Huawei plans to improve its Ascend P1 smartphone for the UK market. Following several reviews coming from well-reputed technology blogs, Huawei decided to release an “enhanced” version of the Ascend P1.Huawei Ascend P1 was officially unveiled back in January at the Consumer Electronics Show 2012, in Las Vegas, and the handset maker promised the smartphone would be rolled out globally starting Q2.
However, the smartphone is only available in a few regions, including Canada and the UK. It appears that the Chinese company launched the Ascend P1 in several countries in order to receive feedback on the phone’s functionality.
According to Coolsmartphone, Huawei currently works on an “enhanced” version of the Ascend P1 for the UK market. Although the smartphone was confirmed for the UK, we suspect the device will be made available in other countries as well.
The “enhanced” version of the smartphone will be added a more “premium” feel. In addition, the device will come with an improved 1800 mAh Li-Ion battery, though Ascend P1 has been confirmed with a 1670 mAh Li-Ion battery.
Other than that, the improved version of Ascend P1 will feature the same specs sheet of the original model, though we should wait and see if the former gets any other enhancements.
Those who are not familiar with the original Huawei Ascend P1 should know the smartphone comes with a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display that supports 540 x 960 pixels resolution and 16 million colors.
In addition, the smartphone packs a dual-core TI OMAP 4460 processor clocked a 1.5 GHz, a PowerVR SGX540 GPU, 1GB of RAM and 4GB of ROM.
Last but not least, Ascend P1 boasts an impressive 8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording, as well as secondary 1.3-megapixel front facing camera for video calls.
