Will Huawei announce a super-thin Windows Phone device in February?

While many people like the Nokia Lumia 920 for its Windows Phone 8 operating system and its hardware features, those same people have also admitted it's a bit thicker than your average smartphone. Now there's word that Chinese-based Huawei is planning to announce a very thin Windows Phone device next month.

cnBeta.com reports that, according to unnamed sources, Huawei will reveal that its upcoming Ascend W2 and it will be just 7.7 mm thick. It has been reported that Richard Yu, the head of the company's mobile division, stated on his Sina Weibo account that the smartphone will be officially revealed during the Mobile World Congress trade show, which will be held in Barcelona in late February.

That same report claims that the Huawei Ascent W2 will have a 4.5 inch screen, a dual core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB  of storage and an eight megapixel camera.

Huawei finally revealed the Ascend W1 at CES 2013 last week and there are rumors that the company is also working on a massive six inch Windows Phone 8 device that could be a rival to Samsung's Galaxy Note family of products. We will likely learn a lot more about Huawei's plans in about six weeks or so during the Mobile World Congress.

Huwaei has been making some serious efforts with specs...they might end up giving Samsung a run for their money...Imagine better than an S4 for $399....mmmm

The one thing that keeps me with my iPhone 5 is its sleekness. I would be all over the Lumia 920 if it wasn't so damn thick. Yes, I tried the Lumia 920 for 10 days and just could not get over how much it looked like a friggin brick. I almost picked up an 820 because it was so much thinner.

How about the Samsung Ativ S? It's really thin. Although I personally think it looks as boring as an iPhone. Nokia (and the HTC and Huawei clones) are really on to something with their design.
