The Huawei Ascend P1, the company’s first Windows Phone gained some attention mainly because of its low price point and being the best alternative to Nokia’s low end bestseller, the Lumia 520. So, Huawei released its successor, the Ascend W2. Most of the specs are better than the previous model. My gripes, however, are the lack of expandable storage and front facing camera.
Huawei Ascend W2 specs:
- 1.4GHz Dual Core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8230 processor
- Adreno 305 graphics
- 512MB RAM
- 8GB internal storage, no expandable storage
- 4.3 inch IPS LCD display (480 x 800 pixels) 217 ppi
- 5 megapixel camera
- 3G, WiFi, WiFi hotspot, Bluetooth 3.0
- GPS, A-GPS
- 1,700 mAh battery
- Windows Phone 8
The phone comes in black, red, yellow and blue. There are no details of the price and local availability yet.
