Remember the Huawei Ascend P1 that I have talked about last month? Well it'll be the first (Long Term Evolution) LTE handset that will be offered in Globe Telecoms 4G plan.
You can get the Huawei Ascend P1 for free under Globe Unli Surf 1799 that will be bundled with "worry-free" and unlimited internet access, Php 800-worth of consumable texts and calls, and 3 flexible freebies monthly.
Huawei Ascend P1 ticks with a 1.5GHz Dual-Core CPU. Likewise, this 4.3-incher will be treated with Super AMOLED Capacitive multi-touch screen. The RAM is beefed-up with 1GB capacity, so that would certainly give a smooth experience system-wide. Other notable specs include 8MP shooter and Android 4.0 (ICS).
“Finally, the first LTE smartphone arrives in the Philippines, and it traverses through the Globe doorsteps via our Globe Stores. Subscribers can now purchase the Huawei Ascend P1 LTE under our unlimited data plans and experience mobile browsing speeds of up to 100 Mbps, on-time exchange of text messages, as well as clearer calls and faster call connections. Together with our device partners, we are excited to bring a world-class mobile experience that is LTE to our subscribers, truly empowering them their way,” said Martha Sazon, Head of Globe Postpaid. Globe will soon be offering its second batch of LTE exclusive smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S III LTE, ZTE T81, and a host of other LTE enabled smartphones with more Globe LTE sites fired up.
You need to have a Globe LTE SIM that will be available in Globe Stores Glorietta, Greenbelt, Rockwell and Ayala Triangle for you enjoy LTE speed in your Ascend P1 handset. If you're an existing Globe postpaid subscriber, then changing to an LTE SIM is free of charge.
