Huawei CEO Yu says that the 7.7mm thin Huawei Ascend W2 Windows Phone is coming to MWC
The first images of this device leaked out in November and the Huawei Ascend W2 is expected to roll with a 4.5 inch HD screen and a dual-core processor under the hood. 1GB of RAM is on board and there is 16GB of native memory. On the back is an 8MP shooter and the device keeps the lights on thanks to a rather hefty 2800mAh battery. All this will be shoehorned into a case just 7.7mm thin. For Windows Phone 8, these specs are are high-end and the Huawei Ascend W2 should compete with other top-shelf models like the Nokia Lumia 920. With pricing indicated at 3200 Yuan ($515 USD), the Chinese OEM would seem to have a few steps on its Finnish rival.
Perhaps of more interest to Windows Phone fans is the talk of a 6.1 inch model from Huawei that could be introduced at MWC 2013, but would be released well after the W2 hits the market. It seems as though 2013 in China is the "Year of the Huawei phone".
