Headed for China Mobile, the largest carrier worldwide with some 700 million users, the Ascend W2 should soon find itself on the shelves. Powering the 4.3-inch WVGA (480x800), 9.9mm thick device is a dual-core 1.4GHz processor and just 512MB of RAM. The internal memory is only 8GB, but at least you get to choose from a Lumia-esque range of colors.
Why is this device relevant? Well, for starters, Huawei said its predecessor, the Ascend W1 sold in over a million in Europe and the US. With the rather conservative specs sheet, we expect the device to launch with an affordable, entry-level price tag. Whether the phone will ship outside of China is yet unclear.
