Huawei has just announced the successor to their Ascend W1 smartphone aptly named Ascend W2 which is as its predecessor a budget oriented Windows Phone smartphone. The Ascend W1 had launched at CES 2013 so they have been quick to refresh the device.
While we all know that Nokia controls almost 90 % of the small Windows Phone share but its interesting to see other players such as Huawei giving the platform some love although the love is a more budget friendly one.
The Huawei Ascend W2 comes with a 4.3-inch display of WVGA (800 x 480) resolution, a 1.4 GHz dual-core Snapdragon process with 512 MB of RAM. There’s 8 GB internal storage with no microSD card slot.
There’s a 5 MP primary autofocus camera which can shoot 720p videos and there’s no front facing camera. It features a 1700 mAh battery along with Huawei’s power saving tech.
The device will be available in Black, Blue, Red and Yellow colors and will surely come at a price nearby to the highly successful Lumia 520 which should be getting its successor in a few weeks time in the leaked Lumia 525. Russia and Netherlands will get the phone this month with more markets getting it soon..
