Huawei announces Ascend P2 to hit Telstra stores July 30

ascendp2Chinese telco giant Huawei has announced it will be selling its quad-core Ascend P2 smartphone through Telstra in Australia with pre-orders beginning later today before it officially goes on sale through Telstra stores on July 30.

Customers pre-ordering online before July 30 will also receive a  Huawei 10-inch MediaPad Android tablet valued at $349.

The Ascend P2 features a quad-core HiSilicon K3V2 SoC CPU with its Vivante GC4000 graphics engine driving a 4.7-inch I-PS LCD touchpanel with 720×1280-pixel resolution. It comes preloaded with Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system. However, unlike most phones these days, this one does not include a MicroSD card slot, so the 16GB of on-board storage is all you get.

Apart from its LTE-Cat.4 coverage on Telstra’s 4G network, the phone also has the standard 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 personal wireless networking as well.

According to Huawei, phone buyers will be able to purchase the Ascend P2 for $0 upfront on a $60 Telstra Everyday Connect plan for 24-months, which includes $600 worth of phone calls but only 1GB of data. If you want the phone outright without contract, Telstra stores will be selling it from July 30 for $504.
