Live photos of Huawei’s W2 Windows Phone 8 flagship appear. Nokia 920T with China Mobile’s logo also spotted
It looks like Huawei’s Windows Phone 8-related plans are similar to those of Nokia and HTC – which have introduced two WP8 handsets each (a high-end model, and a more affordable one).
We’ve already seen Huawei’s Ascend W1, which should be its affordable Windows Phone 8 device. And now photos of an alleged Huawei W2 have showed up.
The W2 seems to be Huawei’s flagship WP8 handset. It certainly looks high-end, and we can see it has an 8MP rear camera with dual LED flash. Unfortunately, the rest of its features are not known. But I assume the display is an HD one, and its processor a dual core unit.
The W1 is expected to be officially announced at CES 2013 in January, so the W2 might be unveiled then, too. While Huawei will launch the W1 for around $300, the W2 is definitely going to be more expensive. It remains to be seen just how expensive.
In other WP news from China, the Nokia Lumia 920T has been spotted bearing China Mobile’s logo. This reconfirms that the largest Chinese mobile carrier (which is also the largest in the world in terms of subscribers) should release the 920T soon.
We’ve previously heard that the Lumia 920T would arrive at China Mobile before the end o November. The handset is similar to the 920 that’s being sold internationally, but comes with TD-LTE support, and enhanced Adreno 320 graphics.
