While the Huawei Ascend P1 is only about to touch down in the US, a variant of the fashionably thin Android phone is expected to land soon in the manufacturer’s home country, China. Dubbed as the Huawei Ascend P1 XL, the phone will lose some of its slim figure in exchange of a better battery life.
As you can probably tell, the Ascend P1 XL comes with a bigger battery capacity. The phone will boast a 2,600mAh battery to replace the 1,670mAh one found on the regular version of the Ascend P1. It’s not exactly up to Motorola Droid Razr Maxx’s standard with its 3,300mAh cell, but it should be enough to provide more display time for those hectic days.
Apart from the battery, the rest of the specs are similar to the Ascend P1 model. The Ascend P1 XL still comes with a dual-core 1.5GHz TI OMAP 4460 processor, 4.3-inch qHD display, 1GB RAM, 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.
Unwired View said that the Ascend P1 is expected to go for 3,000 CNY when it launches at the end of July, which is about $470. We’re sure the price will be higher than that for the international market – if it ever makes it outside.
