The Ascend G600 sports a large 4.5-inch LCD IPS qHD capacitive touchscreen display that supports 540 x 960 pixels resolution, and features Corning Gorilla Glass coating.
On the inside, the smartphone embeds a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 768MB of RAM and 4GB of ROM, which can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD memory card.
Other highlights of the handset include secondary VGA camera for video calls, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity, as well as HSDPA and HSUPA support.
According to Huawei, the Ascend G600 drains energy from a high-capacity 1930 mAh Li-Polymer battery which provides more than 15 days of standby time. More details on the Huawei Ascend G600 are available here.
