Although Huawei was among the first handset makers to announce their support for Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8, it didn’t officially present any WP8 devices until now. But it looks like it’s finally going to unveil a few of them at CES 2013, in January.
As reported last month, the Ascend W2 will have an 8MP rear camera with Flash. Its other features are not known, unfortunately. But we can assume they include a large display with 1280 x 720 pixels, and a powerful processor.

As for the Ascend W1, this will come with a 4.3 inch WVGA display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 5MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of ROM, and a 2,000 mAh battery. My Drivers says the W1 will cost 1,499 CNY (about $240) in China. At this price, the handset will be slightly cheaper than the Lumia 620 (announced earlier this month as Nokia’s most affordable Windows Phone 8 device). Of course, it remains to be seen if Huawei intends to launch the W1 all over the world, or just in China.
