GSMInfo.nl reports that Huawei’s Dutch division has revealed the Netherlands will be the first European country to stock the Huawei Ascend W2.
The mid-range handset has similar specs to the Nokia Lumia 520, except for featuring a front-facing camera, 4.3 inch WVGA screen and colour-changing capacitive keys that match your accent colour.
The handset has a:
- 1.4 GHz dual-core processor with 512 MB of RAM
- 8 GB of internal memory, expandable with max. 32 GB via microSD
- 4.3 inch TFT screen with resolution of 480 x 800 pixels
- 5-megapixel camera with led Flash
- Windows Phone 8
The device should retail for around 200 euro, which is somewhat more expensive than the Nokia Lumia 520.
