Huawei hasn’t exactly set the Windows Phone world on fire with a higher end device. Sure the W1 is a nice budget phone for those just getting into the smartphone game, but most people reading this site would probably prefer something a little more impressive. Today the specs of the Ascend W2 from Huawei leaked online, showing off a device more in line with the Lumia 920s and Ativ S devices of the world.
The last we heard of the Ascend W2 was back January, where we expected to see it at MWC (didn't happen). You’re looking at a device with a 4.3 inch display, powering pixels to the resolution of 1280 x 720. Inside you’ll find a very familiar processor – the S4 from Qualcomm with a clock speed of 1.5 GHz. You’ll also get a 2000mAh battery, 1 GB of RAM, an 8MP shooter on the back that does video at 1080p. Full list of specs below:
- 4.3 inch IPS Touchscreen
- Display resolution 1280 x 720
- Color Support: 16 million colors
- Screen technology: Multi-touch screen
- Flash: LED fill light
- AF: Yes

- Data Technology: EDGE, GPRS, HSPA+
- Bluetooth: Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR
- WLan: Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11 b/g
- USB: Micro USB v 2.0
- GPS: GPS/A-GPS (Built-in GPS chipset)
- Interface/Port: 3.5mm earphone jack/Micro USB

- Battery: Li-on battery (2000mAh)
- Standby Time: 150-200 hours
You’ll notice that there is no mention of onboard storage or whether or not the device supports expandable storage through microSD cards. What’s weird is if you go to the source below you actually then have the option to specify how much storage you want (4,8,16, and 32 GB) via ‘card’. Overall it’s fairly on par with the Lumia 920, Ativ S, and 8X. But could be a little too late without a known release date. The leak says this device will be available starting 11/15/2012. Obviously that date has come and gone, was this device meant for an earlier release and stalled for unknown reasons?
The starting price is $289, which isn’t bad for specs listed. But this is a site we’ve never heard of and would advise you not to order the Ascend W2 until we know for sure what’s going on here. I mean would you honestly order from a site with the logo below?
