Huawei's flagship Ascend P1 passes FCC testing

Ascend P1 gets FCC approval for sale in North America

The Huawei Ascend P1 smartphone has now completed FCC testing. The Chinese phone-maker still hasn't revealed any official launch information for the 4.3-inch flagship, and it's missed its originally promised April reveal date. This FCC approval means the company is at least certified to sell the handset in the US.

What the FCC listing also reveals is support for five-band HSPA+/UMTS bands, which would make it compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile networks. The phone is otherwise powered by a dual-core, 1.5GHz TI OMAP 4460 chip and has Android 4.0 onboard. There is otherwise 4GB of storage space onboard

The slimmer but similarly-equipped P1 S is nowhere to be found, however.

The handset should arrive in markets such as Australia, Hong Kong, and Taiwan before month's end, with Europe and Latin America to get it soon thereafter. [via Engadget]
