Huawei Ascend W1 coming to the Philippines on April 12?

Huawei Philippines' event invite

An invite sent out by Huawei Philippines is teasing what might be the release of their Ascend W1 on April 12. The invite states "We are unveiling higher and bigger 'doors'" and depicts the side view of what surely looks to be the Ascend W1 in white and it's Lumia-like cyan. The event will be held at 10:30 AM on April 12 at Huawei's headquarters in Makati City.

The Ascend W1 is an economy Windows Phone 8 handset that features a 4” WVGA display, dual core 1.2 GHz CPU, 512MB of RAM and a 5MP rear shooter with a 0.3 MP front-facing cam. It's not going to turn a lot of heads, but as we found in our first look back in early January, it's a solid phone for emerging markets and the low price point crowd.

Of course, it could be that this announcement is not for a Windows phone at all. Huawei is also knee deep in Android, so this could be much ado about nothing. It seems time will tell.

Seems a nice phone, but the 512MB RAM is still a disadvantage for me.

It's pronunced exactly the same way as it is spelt. 
So it's WHO-A WAY but both syllables are in rising tone
