The big talk when it comes to Huawei is the Mate and the D2. However, some cheaper variants are being announced. To continue with that, Huawei has announced a new smartphone in Germany. It's called the Ascend G615 and it's actually quite nice.
According to Vlad Bobleanta from Unwired View, the specs for the Ascend G615 are above average. The phone packs a HiSilicon K3V2 1.4GHz quad core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8MP camera capable of 1080p HD video recording, expandable storage, all behind a 4.5″, 720p, IPS display. That competes favorably with most devices released at the end of 2012.
So far, the only thing that isn't too exciting is that it will ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. We're almost certain it'll see Jelly Bean, but it appears the Ascend G615 won't ship with it. This can be a problem for some. With specs like those, though, it could be worth it for many people.
According to BestBoyZ.de, it should be out in early February. The vendors will include Amazon, Conrad, and Cyberport. What will be nice is Huawei is aiming to deliver a high end smartphone for lower cost. So it won't cost as much as other high end smartphones. It will reportedly cost €299.
This is going to be an interesting scene for Huawei. The phone doesn't pack the spec power or screen size of phones that are about to be released. That also isn't the market it's aiming for. The Ascend G615 is aiming for people who want a good smartphone without paying top price for it. For those people, this will be an excellent option. Is this kind of release going to help Huawei gain market share in Europe? Let us know if you'd buy it.
