Huawei reveals Ascend P1 TD- SCDMA & 2600mAh XL for China
Huawei may not be the first manufacturer that some consumers think of when choosing a new smartphone, but the company has been revealing some notable handsets recently and today we have news of the Ascend P1 TD-SCDMA and the Ascend P1 2600 mAh XL for China.
The company has used the start of the Mobile Asia Expo to reveal two new additions to its range of Android smartphones, and according to an article over at GSM Arena both the Ascend P1 2600mAh and Huawei Ascend P1 TD-SCDMA are modified versions of the international Huawei Ascend P1, which are heading over to China with a bigger battery and different 3G radios.
As it can be worked out from the model name the Huawei Ascend P1 TD-SCDMA loses the WCDMA connectivity for a TD-SCDMA 3G radio, which is more compatible with the third generation of carrier networks in the country, and will be available to purchase at the end of the month.
Meanwhile the Huawei Ascend P1 2600 mAh XL features a much bigger battery put on the back of the slim form factor of the Ascend P1. The company decided to keep the new dimensions of the handset a secret but did reveal it will add a millimetre or two. It is thought the Huawei Ascend P1 XL will be available to consumers during the third quarter in China.
The company has also announced it will be releasing the Ascend D1 in the country soon, with other markets set to follow some time after, but the release of the quad core handset is thought to be coming during the second half of the year. Is Huawei a handset manufacturer you would ever consider?
