Huawei Ascend Y530 with Snapdragon 200 CPU and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean announced in Europe
Huawei announced the upcoming availability of a new affordable Android smartphone called Ascend Y530. Succeeding the Ascend Y300 and Y511 models from last year, the Ascend Y530 runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean customized with Huawei’s own Emotion UI.

The new handset features a 4.5-inch display with 480 x 854 pixels, HSDPA, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, 5MP rear camera with LED flash, VGA front-facing camera, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 1,750 mAh battery. The smartphone measures 132.5 x 67 x 9.3 mm, weighs 145 grams, and is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 (MSM8210) processor - the same that Sony is using for its new entry-level Xperia E1.

As you can see in the photos unveiled by Huawei, the Ascend Y530 has an interesting two-color design, and will be available in four versions: black with grey, black with red, black with yellow, and white with grey. According to Huawei, the Y530 is targeted at young users. It will be released in Germany first, starting March, for a suggested retail price of $200 (€149). The price will probably go down soon after launch.

That's because the price is Euro (€149) converted to USD ($200). Read the article properly. Smh. -__-

The Moto G costs €166 (8GB) and €199 (16GB), so it's more expensive than this Ascend Y530.

oh okay. Didn't know the Moto G cost so much in Europe. In the US it's $200, and with the current or soon-to-be whatever-it's-called program, it costs only $160 for the 16gb.

149 euros is too much for a phone with only 512MB of ram, since phones with 1GB are approaching that price point already (the xperia M costs 160 euros, the Moto G 169… ), and the additional ram is well worth the difference in price.

Lesson learnt: If you can't innovate in design, innovate in colour scheme
