A few days ago, we did take a look at some spy shots of the upcoming Huawei W1 which runs on the Windows Phone 8 operating system, and this time around, we have the official press images of said smartphone hitting the Internet. Of course, some might say that the Huawei W1 does resemble one of the blue colored Lumias from Nokia, but you can also say that the vibrant colors of the Huawei W1 is also inspired by Windows Phone’s Live Tiles. Apart from blue, there will be black, white and pink versions of the Huawei W1.
Needless to say, the Huawei W1 will not be a high end smartphone, as it treads the entry level to mid-range segmentby offering the smooth user experience of Windows Phone in addition to maintaining a sense of affordability. Hey, the world’s economy is not exactly going gangbusters now, is it? Some of the hardware specifications for the Huawei W1 include a 4″ WVGA display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, a VGA front-facing camera with a 5-megapixel camera at the back, 512MB RAM and 4GB of internal memory. It is tipped to arrive in China sometime next month or in December for approximately $310 after conversion, and that would be for an unlocked device.
