Huawei W1 press photos appear: Windows Phone 8 in style and on budget
posted by Victor H. / Oct 19, 2012, 7:53 AM
The blue version isn’t the only one, though. The company is also bringing a black, white and pink Huawei W1 Windows Phones.
This whole device is not about stellar specs, but rather about compromises and affordability, still preserving Windows Phone’s smooth user experience. Here is a quick rundown of the specs, as per rumors:
- 4 inch WVGA display,
- 1.2GHz dual-core processor,
- VGA front-facing camera,
- 5MP rear camera with flash,
- 512MB of RAM,
- 4GB of expandable storage.
Finally, the Huawei W1 release date is set for November or December in China. The price comes at the sweet $310, and that’s something pretty reasonable for that spec sheet. It would probably come to Western markets soon, but there is no clarity on when that will happen nor any official confirmation yet. Ogle at it right after the source.

Had it been at least qHD I would have been really interested.

I don't believe the Windows Phone 8 platform supports qHD resolution. Just 800x480, 1280x720, & 1280x768.
