Huawei most certainly has a slew of Android-running devices all prepped for official announcements at next week’s Consumer Electronics Show, however a fresh report out of China suggests the OEM is still very much committed to Windows Phone as well.
Despite making it clear it intends to exit the US mobile market, Huawei isn’t ready to abandon world domination plans, having a trio of top-shelf handhelds in the pipeline.
The “true” octa-core Glory 4 (aka Honor 4) is not the only high-end handheld Huawei has in the pipeline, as the Ascend Mate 2 has been given Tenaa’s blessing, being therefore due for a China launch over the next few months.
As bullish as Huawei is about its prospects in the Android world and the potential to challenge the likes of Samsung or HTC, as modest the company’s first Windows Phone efforts look. But the world needs budget-friendly cute little handhelds too, so maybe the Ascend W2 has a hit potential after all.
Even if Huawei’s Ascend P6 is not yet official and will only be unveiled later today, the phone is pretty much an open book following recent leaks. Subsequently, it shouldn’t come as a surprise the world craves for the P6, so much in fact that reservations have already topped 2 million.
The soon to be unveiled Huawei Ascend W1 follow-up, likely called W2, has been pictured by serial leaker evleaks. The Windows Phone 8-based handheld is likely a 4.5-incher with a dual-core CPU.
