Huawei Ascend W2 picture leaks online

A new Huawei Ascend W2 picture has emerged online, this time resembling a press shot for the reportedly upcoming Windows Phone 8 handset.

The Windows Phone 8 Huawei Ascend W2 has cropped up online again in the guise of an official-looking PR shot.

Coming courtesy of notorious tipster EVLeaks, the picture shows a fairly slim Ascend W2 handset running Windows Phone 8.

More curved and thinner than the current Huawei Ascend W1 handset that was released in the UK a couple of months ago, the Huawei Ascend W2 picture was leaked with no accompanying price or specs list.

The handset was rumoured to go on sale for under £200, which fits with the current price for the Huawei Ascend P1 in the UK – £180.

It could be launched at Huawei’s June event, which already promises the launch of the Huawei Ascend P6 flagship.

Huawei Ascend W2 Rumours

Huawei Ascend W2 specs leaked online earlier this year, revealing the handset may play host to a 4.3-inch 720p HD IPS display.

Packing a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor with 1GB of RAM, the Huawei Ascend W2 could be powered by a 2,000mAh battery.

It could have an 8-megapixel camera in the rear, and with all those specs combined it certainly fits the description of an entry-level Windows Phone 8 handset, similar to the Nokia Lumia 620.

The Huawei Ascend W2 will build upon the specs sheet of the Huawei Ascend W1, which we gave a glowing nine out of ten score in our review.

Offering a 4-inch screen, 5-megapixel camera, the Huawei Ascend W2 has a dual-core 1.2GHz processor and Adreno 305 graphics.
