A leaked rendered image of what appears to be Huawei’s new Windows Phone 8 smartphone, the Ascend W2, has leaked online. Carrying a 4.3-inch display and a Snapdragon S4 CPU.
As the name of the device suggests, this is a successor to the Huawei Ascend W1 that we reviewed last month. Based on the leaked image, the W2 drops the chin-like feature and the squarish looks of its predecessor in favor of a more rounded design.
Being a step-up from the entry-level W1, the Ascend W2 falls in the mid-range level sporting a larger 4.3-inch IPS HD display, a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 CPU, 1GB of RAM, 8 megapixel camera with LED flash, 1080p video recording capabilities, and a 2,000mAh battery.
No word yet on official release date and pricing but some Chinese sites were estimating it to sell at 1,770 Chinese Yuan or around Php12,000.
