Huawei working on Windows Phone 8 handset

Windows Phone 8

The first images of what is reportedly a new Windows Phone 8 device, from Chinese manufacturer Huawei, have emerged online.

The pictures of the Ascend W1 handset appeared courtesy of a Chinese blog and they show a device which looks quite similar to a scaled down HTC One X, albeit with branding from Windows Phone and Huawei.
Reports suggest that it will feature a four inch touchscreen display, a dual core processor, clocked at 1.2GHz, half a gig of RAM and 4GB of storage space onboard.

It will also feature a sizable 2000mAh battery, a five megapixel primary camera and a secondary camera on the front for video calls.

What sounds most appealing about the device is the price, which could be as low as 185. This will make it considerably cheaper than the other Windows Phone 8 handsets that are being launched before the end of the year.

Leading the pack is the Nokia Lumia 920, which will be facing off against the HTC Windows Phone 8X at the top of the technical tree. The Lumia 820 and Windows Phone 8S will do battle a little further down the price scale, with the Ascend W1 sitting pretty in the bargain bin.
