Huawei Ascend P2 brings 'world's fastest' 4G at 150Mbps

Chinese phone manufacturer Huawei has unveiled a handset it claims has the world's fastest wireless speeds.

During a keynote event ahead of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona the company launched the Ascend P2, a phone that uses LTE category 4 to achieve network speeds up to 150Mbps.

The P2 is part of Huawei's fashion-focused product range and features a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and comes with 1GB of RAM. It runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and displays its wares using a 4.7-inch 720x1280-pixel display, which can reportedly be used even when wearing gloves, similar to Nokia's Lumia devices.

The P2 forms part of Huawei's effort to move away from being seen as a manufacturer of products for other brands and become a brand power in its own right.

The Ascend P2 handset is expected to launch in the summer of 2013 meaning it should coincide with other UK phone service providers joining EE in the 4G network space.
