Three have just sent out a press release confirming the new Huawei Ascend P2 is now on sale here in the UK
We got hands on the P2 at MWC this year and were very impressed with the design but we’re unable to test the superfast networking due to CAT4 networks not being available yet.
Features include a large 4.7 inch HD dispay, 13 megapixel camera and Ultrafast networking for 4G speeds up to 150Mbps using CAT4 technology plus a large 2420mAh battery to last you the day
Here is the full press release from
The Huawei Ascend P2 is available now on Three.
The Huawei Ascend P2 is now available on Three’s Ultrafast network with all-you-can-eat data, on both Pay As You Go and pay monthly price plans. The device will be stocked in all Three stores on the 4th June and available through Three.co.uk from today.
The Huawei Ascend P2 is available for £23 a month with no upfront cost on the Ultimate Internet 500 plan and for £26 a month with no upfront cost on The One Plan. Both plans are available with all-you-can-eat data.
The device is also available on Pay As You Go for £299.99 plus a top up. All in One 15 costs £15 and gives 30-day access to all-you-can-eat data along with 300 any-network minutes and 3,000 texts. Or All in One 25 costs £25 and offers 500 minutes, 3,000 texts and all-you-can-eat data for a 30-day period.
The device is compatible with Three’s DC-HSDPA network, which already covers more than 80 per cent of the UK population, giving people a great internet experience. This great smartphone is also future-proofed so that when 4G rolls out on Three later this year, Three customers’ speeds will increase even further at no extra cost to enjoy the privilege.
Sylvia Chind, Head of Devices at Three said, “With cutting edge technology, the super thin and Ultrafast Ascend P2 is perfectly matched with our network. The long-lasting battery means people can use their phone for even longer and get the most out of Three’s all-you-can-eat data – watch unmissable TV programmes on demand or capture amusing moments on video and upload them onto Facebook or Twitter.”
With a large 4.7 inch screen made with Corning® Gorilla® Glass, the Huawei Ascend P2 is not only great for browsing and viewing photos, it’s also super-strong. Additionally the Ascend P2 is equipped with a 13 MP camera with dedicated camera key ideal for capturing great photos at the click of a button.
Rhys Saunders, Sales Director at Huawei Device, said: “The Ascend P2 was built for entertainment, without compromising design. Its sleek frame houses a large HD screen, a super powerful engine room, and a great big battery, which make it perfect for data-hungry content such as gaming, video and catch-up TV. The Ascend P2 allows people to get the very best of Three’s Ultrafast network and great data tariffs today; as well as being future-proofed for even faster network services in the future.”
