Huawei has unveiled its second Windows Phone O.S. based Huawei Ascend W2 for global markets and this new smartphone will be available in multiple colors. HUAWEI Ascend W2 will become available in Russia and the Netherlands from November, with other markets to follow.
“Building on the popularity of our first Windows Phone 8 device, HUAWEI Ascend W1, we created HUAWEI Ascend W2 so value-savvy people don’t have to compromise on great technology,” said Kevin Ho, President of Handset Product Line, Huawei Consumer Business Group. “HUAWEI Ascend W2 provides an enhanced visual experience and impressive stand-by time, and can be customized inside and out with splashes of color.”
The processor employed is 1.4 GHz Dual core (krait) snapdragon processor backed by 512 MB RAM. The RAM will be sufficient enough for handling the O.S. but the phone won’t be a good option for those interested in gaming. The GPU used is Adreno 305. The Internal storage is 8 GB and is not extendable. You will also get 7GB of free SkyDrive cloud storage
The display is larger than that of Nokia Lumia 520 at 4.3 inches but sports the same WVGA resolution and will give you pixel density of 217 ppi. The IPS LCD display will ensure good viewing angles and the super sensitive touch will allow you to operate this phone even while using gloves.
The primary camera is of 5 MP and is capable of 720p HD video recording. No secondary camera is present in this device which won’t be missed much in markets like India.
The battery capacity is 1700 mAh and this will last for 9 hours and 30 minutes of talk time and 395 hours on Standby. The phone will be available Black, Blue, Red and Yellow variants. The phone will mainly compete with other budget windows phones which includes the popular Nokia Lumia 520.
