Huawei Ascend W1 arrives along with Ascend Mate and Ascend D2, but plays in another League: the Windows Phone 8, still one of the anticipated for 2013 and more specifically for this CES 2013.
Effectively it is a terminal with the Microsoft operating system and which can be considered mid-range, because it implements a series of fairly normal specifications within the catalogue of phones WP. Unlike the other two models Android presented these days, Huawei Ascend W1 Yes will come to Spain in the coming months.
Current, normality. There are dozens of synonyms to refer to your hardware is quite common on other WP terminals, which of course does not mean that it is bad. It is normal, a range mean in its purest form.
The Huawei Ascend W1 screen is 4 inches, type IPS LCD 800 × 480 pixels resolution and with 4 GB of storage which, fortunately for many, will be expandable through microSD. There is no data on the amount of RAM, although we can assume that it will be the standard which we in this generation of Terminal Windows: a total of 1 GB.
Chosen processor is, like so many others, a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, but this time the lower that for example MSM8230 model give the Lumia. It is a dual-core 1.2 GHz. 305 Adreno GPU.
Another interesting point is the battery, which although not outstanding (1950 mAh.) Huawei indicates that it provides a range of 470 hours in stand-by. Evidently a figure impossible in everyday life, although it will be interesting to measure what its actual performance. Finally and as it is becoming customary, Huawei Ascend W1 incorporates two cameras: 5 megapixel rear and front of 0.3.
As you can see, the Huawei Ascend W1 features are not the most cutting-edge market. It is also true that, as a general rule, Huawei terminals are not characterized by this if not for a fairly attractive price offer.
This may be precisely one of their advantages. Huawei Ascend W1 Smartphone could be one of the Windows Phone 8 cheapest in the market, at least if we attend to the history of the own Huawei as its fairly conventional characteristics. A priori we might think that it will be competing with Lumia 620 in price (the most basic model of Nokia will be distributed free for 270 euros) but with somewhat better characteristics.
