At Mobile World Congress this weekend, Huawei unveiled what it’s calling the world’s fastest 4G LTE phone.

The Ascend P2 was announced on Sunday and runs a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and LTE Cat 4.

The device can achieve download speeds of up to 150 Mbps, Huawei said and would be on sale in France with Orange in June, and globally around the second quarter of the year.

Orange France device marketing director Florence Paour said the Ascend would enable customers the fastest access to content, achieving the 150 Mbps on the operator’s new 4G network.

The manufacturer said the P2 downloaded HD movies in minutes and loaded videos, web pages and e-books in seconds.

The phone is 8.4mm thick with a 4.7 inch screen and Gorilla Glass 2.0

The device runs on Android 4.1 and NFC enabled models will be available in certain markets.

It packs a 13 MP rear facing camera with HDR and a 1.3 MP front facing camera, and a 2420 mAh battery.
