Huawei Sends Invites to an Event at MWC, 8-Core Ascend P2 Expected
The company might announce a new flagship Android smartphone in Barcelona
Chinese mobile phone maker Huawei is gearing up for the launch of a new smartphone at the upcoming 2013 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, and it has already started sending out invitations to a press event set on February 24.No specific info on what will be unveiled there has emerged so far, but rumor has it that the company might make official its first 8-core smartphone, the Ascend P2.
Provided that this pans out, Huawei would become one of the first smartphone makers in the world to launch a device featuring double the cores of today’s high-end handsets.
The company has already managed to impress with its 6.1-inch Ascend Mate and 5-inch full HD Ascend D2 that became official at CES 2013 in January, and could be set to do so once again at this month’s event.
