Chinese mobile phone maker Huawei is gearing up for the launch of Windows Phone 8 devices, and it seems that its first such handset will prove a great competitor for smartphones such as Nokia Lumia 620 and Windows Phone 8S by HTC.
A leaked document that emerged over at WinP.cn shows that Ascend W1, which should be unveiled in early 2013, will come with specs that will put it in a better position than the aforementioned phones from Nokia and HTC.
The mobile phone will arrive on shelves with a 1.2GHz processor packed inside, faster than the rivals’, but complemented by the same 512MB of RAM.
Furthermore, it will sport 4GB of internal memory, most probably paired with a microSD memory card slot with support for additional storage space.
The handset will also feature a 4-inch touchscreen display capable of delivering an 800 x 480-pixel resolution, and will be powered by a 2,000 mAh battery, larger than what the other two phones have to offer.
It will also feature a 5-megapixel photo snapper on the back when made available, and a front camera for video calling, along with connectivity features such as Wi-Fi, NFC, and the like. The phone might be launched in blue, pink, white, and black colors, rumor has it.
This should be another strong selling point for the Window Phone 8 device, since rumor has it that it might arrive on shelves at 1,499 yuan ($240 / €183).
Huawei hasn‘t confirmed details on this device as of now, but it is expected to make the new Windows Phone 8 device official in early January during the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Stay tuned for more on this.
