Huawei Ascend W2

Huawei Ascend W2, the thinnest Win Phone coming to MWC?

Richard Yu, head of Huawei's mobile division, said that the company will be presenting their flagship Windows Phone 8 device, the Ascend W2, at Barcelona's Mobile World Congress in February. The comment came via Sina Weibo, China's version of Twitter. We got a taste of Huawei's Windows Phone expertise at CES with their Ascend W1, but the W2 promises to be a bit more intriguing, as it looks to be the thinnest Windows Phone 8 device yet.

If supposed leaks are accurate, the Ascend W2 will be just 7.7mm thick, but will be pretty well-equipped. Word has it that it will sport a 4.5-inch, 720p HD screen that is sensitive enough to operate with gloves on, like the Nokia's Lumia phones. It will also allegedly have a 8MP rear camera, 1GB RAM, 16GB of storage and 2800 mAh battery. It is unknown what caliber dual-core processor will power the Ascend W2.

The W2 is expected to fetch about 3200 yuan ($515), a pretty reasonable price point for what looks to be Huawei's hero device. Take this as you will, but we can definitely see Huawei bringing more to the Windows Phone tablet.
