The company might unveil a high-end Windows Phone 8 device at the event
Chinese mobile phone maker Huawei will bring to the market a nice range of new devices this year, as it has already unveiled at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, but it seems that it has even more of them to show to the world.The vendor has already sent out invitations to a press event set for February 24 in Barcelona during the 2013 Mobile World Congress, where at least one new smartphone is expected to be officially unveiled.
The event will take place on the day before the MWC 2013 fair kicks off, yet no official info on what might be announced there has been provided as of now.
However, the invitation that GSM Arena received from Huawei did provide a glimpse at the smartphone's front frame design.
Rumor has it that the company might be set to launch a high-end Windows Phone 8 smartphone at the upcoming show in Spain.
The phone, previously said to be included in the company’s Huawei Ascend W series, might hit shelves with a 4.5-inch 1280 x 720 display on the front, and with a dual-core Krait processor packed inside, complemented by 1GB of RAM.
Furthermore, the new device is said to sport an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, most probably with support for full HD video recording, as well as with a front camera for video calling.
Earlier this year, Huawei announced its first smartphone powered by Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 operating system, the Ascend W1, which will hit the market as an affordable device.
In addition to this smartphone, the Chinese vendor unveiled to the world a 6.1-inch Android-based phablet, the Ascend Mate, as well as a new flagship handset running under Google’s mobile operating system, the Ascend D2, with a 5-inch 1080p screen and a quad-core processor packed inside.
