Huawei was one of the major players at the CES 2013, last month. The Chinese company launched two strong devices, the Ascend D2 and the Ascend Mate. However, it seems that the company has not finished showing us new handsets and it’s preparing us something for this month’s Mobile World Congress, as well.

The most probable device that Huawei will launch at MWC is the high-end Ascend P2, a serious smartphone that was the subject of a bunch or rumors in the past weeks. This time, we have a big one which includes an image as well, and it was reported by GizChina.

The Chinese publication just published some photos of what seem to be the front and back of the Ascend P2, and also claims that it has information about some new specs and pricing details.

The photos are not the best, and don’t bring anything new, but what’s more interesting is the price tag of the device which is supposed to start at around $480. I know Huawei is not one of the top companies when it comes to high-end handsets, and its products are rather meant for smaller pockets, but $480 is a pretty low price even for them. More shocking news is that the Ascend P2 will come with a brand new 8-core SoC, according to previous reports.

Let me get this strait…apart from the much than impressive chip, the Huawei Ascend P2 will feature a 4.7-inch Full HD display, 2GB of RAM, a 13 megapixel rear camera, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and a 3000mAh battery. All these specs for only $480? Either, the rumors are just not true, or Huawei really want’s to bring its A game to the table. If the company will manage with come up with this combination of specs and price, it will do some real damage on all the markets, not only the emerging ones.
