Huawei Ascend Y300 lands, priced at Php5,490

Huawei releases the Ascend Y300 in local stores, replacing the popular Ascend Y200 with a bigger screen and Jellybean right out of the box. The Ascend Y200 had a suggested retail price of Php5,490 so Huawei is also making the same for the Y300.

The device was first spotted in Latin America back in June 2012 but only landed in the Philippines this month.

The Ascend Y300 is a simple entry-level handset and follows that same demographic target as the Y200.

Huawei Ascend Y300 specs:
4.0-inch IPS LCD display @ 480×800 pixels
Qualcomm 1.0GHz dual-core processor
512MB RAM
3G/HSDPA
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 2.1 w/ A2DP
GPS with aGPS support
5MP rear camera
0.3MP front-facing camera
Li-Ion 1730mAh battery
Android 4.1 Jellybean

The device might be a little late though considering the Y200 came as far back as June 2012 and the 9 months since then, several other handsets have crossed the Php5k mark.

The Huawei Ascend Y300 should be available in local stores for a retail price of Php5,490.

    Sir Yuga,

    Was confused by your title. I think it should read Huawei instead of Cherry Mobile. :)

  4. Good price. Malaki lang nga ang bezel and sana walang “Huawei” sa harap.

      huawei is a big multi and international telecom company!why ashamed of that brand? huawei name on the front simply means that your phone is not a clone or rebranded phone!

  5. maybe because may resemblance sila ng cherry mobile flare.. look at the specs then yung position ng camera.. halos same ng CM FLARE…

    huawei is far better than other local brands! try for yourself and believe! Id been using ideos and ascend y200d. though they are low end but both good decent pics and screen color as well! i cant imagine the high end ones! bpacked with 16 million colors? dont compare cherry mobile or my phone with this coz huawei is brand not rebranded phones!

  10. Sir Yuga,

    I think the Ascend Y300 was shown only this year at the MWC 2013. Maybe you confused it with the Ascend G300. I’m sure it’s quite new, due to the fact that it’s already in Jellybean. If it was last year. it should have been ICS. Check out this article: http://www.techradar.com/reviews/phones/mobile-phones/huawei-ascend-y300-1133963/review

    I was excited enough to leave a comment ;-) I do have a
    couple of questions for you if it’s allright. Is it simply me or does it look as if like a few of these comments come across like they are written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on other social sites, I would like to follow you. Would you list the complete urls of all your community pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
