Huawei Ascend P2 reportedly coming with 720p screen, deflates our full HD dreams


The Huawei Ascend P2 is no stranger to leaks, but the one thing we were truly excited about — its 4.5-inch 1080p display — has been scrapped (if it was anything more than a rumour in the first place) in favour of a more standard 720p resolution.

Huawei, in order to achieve record-breaking thinness on the Ascend P2, reportedly chose to include in-cell display technology, much like iPhone 5. This should allow the company to reach the 6.5mm number while maintaining decent battery life. On the other hand, while a 4.5-inch 720p device is great, it does very little to differentiate itself from the well-saturated market. Even LG’s newly-announced Optimus F7 brings 720p to the mid-range market.

So how will Huawei set the Ascend P2 apart from the rest of the Android market? Aside from thinness, it has price to work with; the Ascend P1, a svelte and relatively powerful mid-range device, launched for $399 on WIND Mobile, and we’re relatively certain it will hit the same range when it launches in Q2.
