Colorful Huawei W1 Windows Phone, oversize Ascend Mate phablet, and flagship Ascend D2 strike official poses
It’s not much of a secret at this point that Huawei plans to launch three exciting devices at CES 2013 next week, including its first Windows Phone 8, the W1 (pictured below in a quartet of colors). The four-inch handset, powered by a 1.2GHz dual core processor and 2000mAh battery, will make Huawei just the fourth OEM to ship a WP8 device, following Nokia, HTC, and Samsung.
Perhaps even more highly anticipated is the company’s supposed record-breaking phablet, the Ascend Mate (pictured bottom), whose six-inch screen will make it one of the largest devices capable of being held up to the face for a phone call. The 720p monster should be powered by an equally hefty 3800mAh battery.
Rounding out the impressive trio should be the Ascend D2 (pictured above), whose five-inch full HD display, 1.5GHz quad-core CPU, and 13-megapixel camera make it nearly a doppelganger, specs-wise, of HTC’s popular Droid DNA / Butterfly. All-in-all, Huawei sounds like it’s really bringing its A-game to a CES that may otherwise be somewhat lean on the mobile front.
