New China Mobile ad reportedly reveals Huawei Ascend W2

Ascend W2

In a very late breaking story, the site WinP.cn is reporting that a new ad from China Mobile shows the soon-to-be-announced Huawei Ascend W2 in video. The image appears to match up with those shown by @evleaks

The ad itself is not for the W2 itself, as numerous other Samsung phones are shown too. Instead, this appears to be an ad for the TD-SCDMA based China Mobile, which then uses several smartphones to bolster its image as leading network provider.

Though not confirmed, the Ascend W2 is expected to feature a 1280x720, 4.3” IPS display, 8MP camera and 1.5GHz dual-core CPU, making it an ideal mid-range device for emerging markets. No firm date has been given for its announcement or sale date, but we’re expecting it to be soon.

Did the first one sold well?

This is sort of like the 820 but with a better display. Looks like a fine mid range phone.

I'm happy to see any new WP phones released as they will hopefully further the OS's footprint, but I wouldn't bother purchasing a Windows Phone phone from an OEM that publicly describes WP8 as "weak." What kind of ongoing support should I expect from that company?

While I love WPCenteal, I would also agree with your comment and add, I wouldn't be giving any publicity to a company that has stolen every last product it has built. And before someone says "allegedly", tons of companies have built a sound proof case against them, but there is no way to bring anything against China or a Chinese based company. They do whatever they want and flat out don't care.

Josh Harman says:

Agree. I also think that the non-China WP community should turn their back on and ignore Huawei.

Xaphoon148 says:

Agree with that.
The chances that I ever gonna buy a nowai are the same as buying a new Volvo, which also turned Chinese...

You can pretty much stop buying anything - since they are either by Chinese, or manufactured in China, or containing components from China

oddom says:

Heads up wp central your followers hate Huawei now so you might not wanna waste your time with these posts...it's a wrap after the Nokia thing. I for one don't care but this will quickly become a flame war in comments. J/s

joelsilva says:

Lol? I love huawei, i dont care about the others, windows phone is not only Nokia. 

Josh Harman says:

I was against them from the first time I heard of Huawei.

MrVol84 says:

These are the same specs as the HTC 8x.. So what makes this a mid range as oppose to the HTC being considered a high end device?

Josh Harman says:

Screen size, build quality.

Josh Harman says:

Scratch screen size, they are the same.

I'm Happy with my 8X though NOKIA  has dominated the Windows phone Market .

ogracia says:

Thanks Huawei...ill still with Nokia

cybermoose89 says:

Awesome stuff but i still say Nokia for the win!

Nakazul says:

Would have said the more the merrier but not this time, not to Huawei.

Even though I don't understand the language, Asian commercials make me feel happy for some reason.
