Huawei unveils their newest Android smartphones locally, the Ascend P1, P1 LTE and D1 LTE. With their extensive experience with wireless networks, Huawei boasts of their ability to “optimize the network search algorithm for Ascend and base station auto-search technology, allowing us to have faster signal detection and longer battery life,” according to Johnson Ma, Country Manager of Huawei Device Philippines. The Ascend devices feature slim and sleek design, while weighing as light as a feather.
