It looks like MWC 2013 will be an exciting event and if you’re looking forward to seeing what sort of goodies manufacturers will have for us, here’s something you might be interested in. Thanks to a leaked press shot obtained by the folks at Unwired View, we may have gotten a glimpse at the upcoming Huawei Ascend P2, the successor to last year’s super-thin Ascend P1. Will its successor continue the thin form factor or will Huawei focus more on performance instead?

While the exact specs of the device cannot be confirmed at the moment, it is expected to feature a 1.8GHz quad-core processor which is said to be of Huawei’s own creation (still based on ARM), 2GB of RAM, a 4.5” Full HD 1080p display, a 13MP rear-facing camera and a somewhat impressive 3,000mAh battery with Android 4.x Jelly Bean running the show. With the Huawei Ascend D2 touted as being the most powerful smartphone currently available, we have to wonder which marketing angle will Huawei be approaching for the Ascend P2. Either way we will be on site at MWC 2013, so if the Huawei Ascend P2 is a handset you might be interested in, be sure to check back with us then for the details!
