Huawei will be attempting to outdo the competition at this year’s Mobile World Congress with the release of two new smartphones. The move follows on from the unveiling of three new smartphones from the company’s Ascend series at last week’s International CES in Las Vegas.

After wowing the public with the Ascend D2 and the Ascend Mate, the latter with its whopping 6.1-inch display, Richard Yu, head of the company’s consumer business group, said the Chinese firm was planning an even more inspired showing at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month.

“Huawei will be launching two new products at the Mobile World Congress that are more innovative than these two phones,” Yu explained, clearly underlining the fact that the company is saving the best for the Barcelona event.

One of the phones, according to Yu, will be the successor to the Ascend P1 S, the phone that once held the title of world’s thinnest. Alcatel’s One Touch Idol Ultra now holds that crown with measurements of 6.45 mm, but it looks likely that Huawei’s new phone will reclaim the top spot.

It’s still not clear what the second release will be, although Yu did say to expect the release of an eight-core processor sometime this year as well.

Whatever the releases its clear that Huawei is out to make an impact.
