Huawei Ascend W3: Mid-End WP8 Smartphone Coming Early Next Year

By Anuj

Chinese major Huawei is still backing Windows Phone 8 as a platform to reckon with. The makers behind Ascend P6 are not that active, when it comes to WP8 powered handsets. Now, it seems that Huawei is quite optimistic about Windows Phone 8. According to a new media report, an alleged picture of Huawei Ascend W3 has surfaced on the web world.

The phone indeed looks premium, and will feature a 4.5-inch 720p HD display. The folks over at GSMinsider claim that Huawei is planning to announce the W3 in January at the CES 2014. Most likely, the company will launch the device in China followed by other key markets.


The Ascend W3 is said to be made available in two colors: Yellow and Blue. Reports also suggest that Huawei Ascend W3 will be a mid ranged WP8 handset. The internal specifications of the device are still unknown.

Huawei Ascend W3: Mid-End WP8 Smartphone Coming Early Next Year

It makes sense to launch affordable WP8 handsets in countries like India and China, where demand for such devices is immense. We have seen how Nokia Lumia 520 became an instant hit in the Indian market, thanks to its price and aggressive marketing push by Finnish giant Nokia.

Yesterday, it was reported that Huawei would continue to make WP8 handsets after Nokia deal. The world's leading smartphone vendor is unaffected by Microsoft- Nokia partnership. The smartphone vendor will "continue to develop devices running Windows Phone, and launch more products."

Talking about theIndian market, Nokia commands a mammoth share in the WP8 powered handset market. The Taiwanese giant HTC is also present with Windows Phone 8 powered portfolio, but its presence is negligible. When it comes to Huawei, the vendor does not offer a single Windows phone.

We earlier reported that Huawei would announce Ascend W1 in the Indian market. As of now, Huawei is yet to announce Ascend W1 in India. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates.
