Popular low-cost handset manufacturer Huawei’s Chief Marketing Officer of Huawei Device, Shao Yang, has confirmed to Omio that faster processor based mobile phones are coming from the company, along with providing an update on the state of the 4G version of Huawei Ascend P6.
We asked if the LTE version of the P6 will be coming to the UK?
Shao Yang, responded with “Definitely”
“This time we know that the UK and European operators would like an LTE version”
“But still they have made a big effort to have the first version”
“We have around 15 operator partners [in Europe] selling Huawei phones, most of them will launch the P6”
We also asked if there will be a Huawei device with a more powerful processor, coming soon?
This relates to the latest Ascend P6, Ascend P2, Ascend D2 are all found running quad-core 1.5GHz processors, where HTC is now on a 1.7GHz and Samsung, 1.9GHz quad-core CPUs.
“It will happen, in the second half of the year”
“Maybe in Q3”
Later, we enquired if the Q4 version of the Ascend P6, which will feature 4G LTE capabilities, could feature a faster processor?
“We can only say P6 will have LTE in Q4”
“The specifications of that: the battery, the chipset, the LTE specificity – should be [announced] at that time”
“Because we need a lot of testing”
“If the testing doesn’t qualify it, perhaps we might delete something”
