As Windows Phone GDR2 update release approaches, WP vendors are readying early summer refresh to their smartphone portfolios.
We already know about Nokia Lumia 925, which should start shipping in a few weeks, Samsung should announce their new WP device on June 20th. And today we get the news about Huawei Ascend W2 handset, in the form of a press render leaked by @evleaks:
8 megapixel camera with LED flash, 1080p video recording
1GB of RAM
Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, HSPA+ support
2,000 mAh battery
Huawei Ascend W2 looks like a solid mid-range Windows Phone, definitely not in a flagship range.
Some Chinese sites report that Ascend W2 should retail for 1770 Yuan ($290). That’s still a rumor, but sounds about right, if Huawei is positioning this smartphone to compete with Nokia Lumia 720, which come closest to W2 in the specs compartment.
