Powering the handset is a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocked to 1.4GHz and is also supported by 512MB of RAM.

It comes with an 8GB of inbuilt storage. There is a 5-megapixel rear camera aswell. The device sadly lacks a microSD card slot and a front facing camera. In the connectivity front you can see WiFi and Bluetooth features.

The Ascend W2 packs a 1700mAh battery, and will be available in four color variants, Black, Blue, Red and Yellow. Much like other Windows Phone 8 smartphones, the Ascend W2 comes with 7GB of free SkyDrive cloud storage.


After looking at the specs of the handset, it can be said an entry level Windows Phone 8 device. Thus it will compete with Lumia 520 which is Nokia's entry level Windows Phone handset. If compared with Android, there are ample number of device that will stand against this device.

The company has announced saying that the device will be available in Russia and Netherlands from November, while the other markets would follow in time. The company says that the device would come to India soon but fails to disclose the exact date of availability and even the price of the handset remains to be a mystery.
