We had the news that Huawei is working on Windows Phone 8. Huawei was included in the OEM list of Microsoft released earlier this year. We were interested to know what Huawei is experimenting with this whole new OS. But the China based company is trying to hide the specs as much as possible. Now we have come to know several specs of this handset from a recent Tweet. It’s ‘evleaks’ once again! The source has provided plenty of rumors in recent times. Quite surprisingly most of the leaked features were true. Therefore, we can assume these are going to be there in Huawei W1. Now we have some information about upcoming Huawei W1 to share. Let’s take a look at the specs-
Leaked Specs of Huawei W1
- OS: Windows Phone 8
- SoC: Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon S4 (dual 1.2 GHz Krait + Aderno 225)
- RAM: 512 MB
- Display: 4 inch, WVGA, 233 ppi

Well, specs clearly suggest this is a low-end smartphone. It’s not at all as brilliant as Nokia Lumia 920 or HTC 8X. Even Nokia Lumia 820, HTC 8S are better than Huawei W1. Therefore, you can expect the price of this handset will fall in low-mid range. Dual core Snapdragon S4 SoC is no surprise as Snapdragon S4 has been bench-marked by Microsoft for Windows Phone 8 handsets. But Krait cores are clocked at 1.2 GHz instead of 1.5 GHz. I doubt how well it will perform with 512 MB RAM. Windows Phone 8 is yet to ship in market. That’s why it’s quite difficult to predict the performance of this handset. Nevertheless, 1 GB of RAM would have been better for faster multitasking.
Huawei W1 equips just 4 GB of on board storage which is too few. Thankfully, WP8 supports micro SD card which is present in this handset. In supports 32 GB external memory. Li-Ion 2000 mAh battery fuels this exciting smartphone.
