CES 2013 is over now and most of the tech enthusiasts are reporting that this year’s Consumer Electronics Show wasn’t very good and it didn’t have any truly exciting devices (except the Sony Xperia Z/ZL) both in Android and Windows Phone platforms. Earlier this month, Huawei has announced its lower-end Windows Phone 8 handset called Ascend W1. The Chinese manufacturer is rumored to announce two more WP8 handsets in the near future. The massive 6.1-inch phablet is expected to be one of them, with rumored specs including a 6.1-inch 720p display, 1.5GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon Processor, an 8-megapixel massive camera and a whopping 4,050mAh battery.
Another rumored device is called Huawei Ascend W2, about which we’ve been hearing from mid-November. Huawei Exec Richard YU believes that the manufacturer is planning to introduce the Ascend W2 at the world’s largest mobile conference show, Mobile World Congress next month in Barcelona. In fact, he doesn’t mentioned specifically about the W2, nor cited about the Windows Phone handset.
If you need a specs refresher, Ascend W2 should feature a 4.5-inch 720p HD ultra-sensitive touchscreen (which can be operated with gloves) a dual-core processor, a full gigabyte of of RAM, 16 GB of onboard storage, a massive 2,800mAh battery, and there’s an 8 MP main camera on back side. The sources also sais that it is going to be the thinnest Windows Phone 8 device, measuring at just 7.7 mm thin frame.
The Huawei Ascend W2 is expected to cost 3,200 yuan (that’s approx. $515 or €386). On the other side, Huawei is also expected to launch the rumored and super slim P-Series model device, Ascend P2 to the MWC event, and it will be packed with its upcoming octa-core Cortex A-15 processorunder the hood.
