More images of the Huawei Ascend W1 emerge, reminds us of another Windows Phone

If people thought that HTC took some liberties with design and colors with the 8X and 8S from Nokia, wait until you see these prototype images of the Huawei Ascend W1.

We first saw the bezel part leak last night and now full images of the device have appeared on the same social network. And maybe it’s because of that cyan color or the 2D curved glass, but the device looks quite sharp.

We now also have specs to go along with the images:

  • 4.0 screen WVGA
  • 1.2 GHz cpu + 512MB RAM
  • 5MP rear camera 3MP front (?)
  • 2000 mAh battery
  • A variety of color

Not a bad mid-range device by the sound of it. It will of course be curious to see of this device ever lands in the US, something for which we’re not optimistic. But for the rest of the world, you may have a shot.
