The smartphone is already available in the US from T-Mobile
The long-time partnership between Canadian operator WIND Mobile and Chinese handset maker Huawei is about to bring another product to the carrier’s customers.The folks over at MobileSyrup have just been tipped on the upcoming release of Huawei Ascend G312 smartphone at WIND Mobile.
Although there are no details on the exact release date or pricing options, we suspect the phone will be available for purchase for under $400 CAD on no-term.
Huawei Ascend G312 is already available for purchase in the United States via T-Mobile USA, though it’s known as T-Mobile myTouch. US customers can grab the myTouch smartphone for as low as $50 USD with a new two-year agreement, or for $350 USD outright.
We expect WIND Mobile’s Huawei Ascend G312 to feature the same specs sheet as T-Mobile’s version, though they are likely to pack different bloatware.
First of all, it’s worth mentioning that the Ascend G312 is powered by Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system out of the box.
In addition, it sports a decent 4.0-inch capacitive touchscreen display that supports 480 x 800 pixels resolution and 16 million colors.
No scratch resistant glass coating for this one, so you will have to take care not to carry the device in your pocket along with your keys.
Huawei Ascend G312 is equipped with a 1.4 GHz single-core processor and a 5-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording. There’s also a secondary VGA camera for video calls.
On the inside, the smartphone packs 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB).
When it comes to connectivity, Huawei Ascend G312 offers Wi-Fi, DLNA, Mobile Hotspot, GPS with A-GPS support, as well as Bluetooth 4.0. Stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
