Chinese company Huawei is mostly known for its entry-level smartphones, which are slowly making their way into the market. India is the next country that will get the latest Android phones, the Ascend G300 and Ascend Y200.
According to AndroidOS
, Huawei India is about to launch both smartphones in the country, though the company has yet to unveil details on pricing options.
Huawei Ascend G300 and Ascend Y200 are two smartphones powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, but the Chinese handset maker will probably push an Ice Cream Sandwich upgrade for the Ascend G300.
Given the fact that the Ascend Y200 packs only 256MB of RAM, we can safely assume that the smartphone will be stuck on Gingerbread.
On the other hand, Huawei Ascend G300
embeds 512MB of RAM and 4GB (2.5GB user available) of internal memory, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD memory card.
It is also worth mentioning that Huawei Ascend G300 is equipped with a 1 GHz single-core processor, while the Ascend Y200 is powered by an 800 MHz CPU. Both processors are complemented by Adreno 200 GPUs.
The Ascend G300 sports a large 4.0-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display that supports 480 x 800 pixels resolution, whereas the Ascend Y200 has a slightly smaller 3.5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with support for 320 x 480 pixels resolution.
Another difference between the two mid-range Android phones is the camera. The Ascend G300 features a 5-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and LED flash, but the Ascend Y200
only packs a 3-megapixel photo snapper with VGA video recording.
Last but not least, Huawei Ascend G300 drains energy from a 1500 mAh Li-Ion battery, which is rated by the manufacturer for up to 320 hours of standby time or up to 5 hours of talk time. The Ascend Y200 has a 1400 mAh Li-Ion battery that should provide up to 220 hours of standby time or up to 4 hours of talk time.
