Huawei introducing both the Huawei Ascend W1 and Huawei Ascend W2 at CES 2013?

Huawei introducing both the Huawei Ascend W1 and Huawei Ascend W2 at CES 2013?
Looking forward to CES 2013? The show is less than a month away and there are quite a number of phones that people are hoping to see, including  the Samsung Galaxy S IV. At the show, Chinese manufacturer Huawei is expected to introduce the Huawei Ascend W1 and the Huawei Ascend W2. The former is the OEM's low-end model for the platform while the latter represents the high-end. Information about the low-end model first leaked in September and My Drivers adds to that with its report today that the Ascend W1 will be priced at CNY 1,499, which works out to about $240 USD.

The Huawei Ascend W1 is expected to be equipped with a 4.3 inch WVGA screen with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor under the hood. 512MB of RAM and 4GB  of ROM are on board and the back/front cameras weigh in at 5MP and .3MP respectively. Not much is known about the Huawei Ascend W2 except that it offers an 8MP shooter on back with dual LED flash. If we put our thinking caps on, we can see the dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 processor getting the assignment for the Huawei Ascend W2. We'd be surprised to find anything less than 1GB of RAM on that device.
