Several days after we’ve seen the Huawei W1 in live images, now the handset has also appeared in press photos. These confirm that the W1 – which is Huawei’s first Windows Phone 8 device – will come in a blue version, among other colors (white, black, pink).
The W1 doesn’t have high-end features, but it’s still a decent smartphone, offering a 4 inch WVGA display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, VGA front-facing camera, 5MP rear camera with flash, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of expandable memory.
Huawei should launch the W1 in China starting November or December, targeting it at users who want a WP8 device, but aren’t ready to pay a lot of money for handsets like the Nokia Lumia 920 or HTC 8X. The W1 will cost around $310. For the moment, there’s no word if it’s going to be available outside China. But it probably will, since Huawei is releasing smartphones all over the world lately.
