Huawei Ascend W2

Evleaks, who is fairly accurate when it comes to leaked renders of upcoming Windows Phone hardware, has published the above render on Twitter. It's believed to be the Huawei Ascend W2, a more advanced successor to the Ascend W1. We've previously looked at the Ascend W2 and how previous reports suggested it was going to be the thinnest Windows Phone yet, but this is the first we've seen of this design.

What's interesting to note is how different the new render is to images we covered at the start of this year. Specifications were also believed to be on par with high-end smartphones, such as the Nokia Lumia 920 and Samsung ATIV S. In fact, if all rumours hold out to be correct, the Ascend W2 could well be one of the more powerful Windows Phones available. That would certainly be a feat the company would enjoy obtaining.

There's also the fact that the capacitive buttons are glowing blue. IT's probably nothing, but that would be fairly awesome if Huawei added the ability to reflect the current theme and use the colour for the capacitive button lighting. Wishful thinking, we know. It's difficult to tell just how thin this render is, but we'll not make any assumptions until we see more from Huawei.

Are you excited for another Windows Phone from Huawei? If so, what do you mkae of this render?
