We just got word from Huawei Philippines that a new handset will be released next week. While they did not give the suggested retail price, the Huawei Ascend G300 is selling for $160 elsewhere.
That puts the price of the handset in the vicinity of Php7,000. Considering they have the Ascend Y200 that retails for Php5,490, then the Ascend G300 might sell somewhere in between Php6,990 to Php7,490.
Huawei Ascend G300 (U8815) specs:
4.0″ IPS LCD @ 800×480 pixels, 233ppi
Qualcomm MSM7227A Snapdragon 1.0GHz Cortex A5
Adreno 200 GPU
4GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
5MP rear camera with LED flash
FM radio tuner
Android 2.3 Gingerbread
1350mAh Li-Ion battery
122.5 x 63 x 10.5mm (dimensions)
The Ascend G300, with its current configuration, will probably perform close to that of the old Galaxy S. We’ll update this post once Huawei gives us the exact retail price.
Updated: We just got word from Huawei that the suggested retail price of the Ascend G300 is Php9,490.
