India’s first 4G phone: Huawei Ascend P1 LTE

Huawei, in partnership with Qualcomm and Bharti Airtel, announced India’s first 4G Smart Phone, the Ascend P1 LTE (Long Term Evolution). It is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 processor and can handle high speed data on the LTE network and voice calls on the underlying 3G network using Circuit Switched Voice Fall Back (CSFB) technology. Ascend P1 LTE is powered by a 1.5 GHz dual core processor and built-in Adreno 225 GPU. It runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. It has 1GB RAM and 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 960×540 pixels. The phone’s primary camera can shoot 8 megapixels images. Earlier this year, Bharti Airtel became the first telecom services provider in India to deploy LTE-TDD (Test-driven development) networks and launch 4G services in Kolkata and Bengaluru. However, Huawei has not yet revealed the price and availability of the device, but it is expected to be revealed in the second week of November 2012.
