Oh Snap: Specs and photos of the Huawei Ascend W1 leak
First, you need to take your expectations down a notch. This is by no means a high-end model as it carries a 3 inch WVGA screen. The only positive is that WVGA on a 3 inch screen will produce a rather high pixel density. A dual-core 1.2GHz processor is under the hood while a 400MHz GPU crunches the graphics. 512MB of RAM is on board with 4GB of native storage. The back and front facing cameras weigh in at 5MP and .3MP respectively. With a 2000mAh battery spinning the ol' hamster wheel, you should get at least a day's worth of use before needing a recharge. And of course, Windows Phone 8 is installed. The device will be available in the same colors as the Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 models.
The Huawei Ascend W1 is a strange mixture of low to mid end specs (512MB RAM, 3 inch screen) with some surprises (high pixel density, 2000mAh battery). Hopefully Huawei will take a second off from dealing with its distractions to make this pup official. In the meantime, we have the leaked photos for your viewing pleasure. And as always, don't forget to tip your server.

Huawei plain sucks, they are copycats and on top of that they say they have the world fastest phone and never release it.

Agree... I mean 3 inches screen? That phone looks a bit gigantic..

It is a mistake. If you look at the WMPoweruser article it says that it is a 4inch screen.

This does make it seem legit.

i think its just an optical illusion. it looks like 4 inches but it actually is 3 inches :) this allows huawei *cough cough apple* to make potentially very high-end LOOKING phones while keeping costs down and still selling in droves

Photos look like a 4" or bigger screen. Surely not 3"...

Yeah definitely. There's no way it could be 3 or that they'd be dumb enough to make it only 3. This ain't no Lg Dare!
