Huawei, the top third phone maker in the world, announced on Monday that they will be releasing the fastest smartphone in the world. The Chinese company will use this device to increase its brand recognition around the world, says USA Today.
It looks like the World Mobile Congress in Barcelona will be full of launching events as every mobile maker in the world has a couple of new smartphones and devices up its sleeve. Following Lenovo and Nokia’s announcements on Monday, Huawei revealed their intentions to launch the fastest smartphone in the world. The company did not reveal too many aspects of the phone during the Sunday presentation, except for the fact that it will help the company expand its brand beyond the Chinese market.
The target public remains unknown for the moment, although the spokespersons told the press that the new phone will be programmed to display more than 100 looks or “themes”. According to Richard Yu, the head of consumer business branch, the feminine public prefers products that are colorful and whose design can be modified according to one’s interest. The manager also declared that Huawei is learning from Apple the methods by which they can help make Google’s Android a more user-friendly software.
In addition to being the fastest phone in the world, Huawei’s new smartphone has also been provided with advanced features. Ascend P2, as the model is called, features a 4.7 inch display, a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, 1 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage capacity. Judging by the details provided by the manufacturer, it appears that Huawei’s Ascend P2 is really going to be the fastest smartphone on the market, especially since it will have the latest Android version 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.
Meanwhile, customers will have to wait until April/June, the interval when the phone will be officially released. The price that will be practiced by carriers will be $525 without a contract. Yu explained that their smartphone is the fastest because it has faster download speeds than other phones. Huawei concluded by saying that the company has made great efforts to establish themselves as trustworthy smartphone makers. The endeavor has been all the more difficult since the Chinese government has been accused of being linked to cyber espionage.
