It's all-you-can-leak month for Windows Phone manufacturers, who have managed to be thoroughly scooped ahead of the definitive event on October 29th. Yesterday we caught a glimpse of a part of the display from Huawei's upcoming Windows Phone 8 device, but now we've gotten the whole shebang.
WMPoweruser has received photos originating from a Sina Weibo account of the Huawei Ascend W1 in all of its glory. The device notably piggybacks on Nokia, borrowing the cyan color that has defined the Lumia series for its own maybe-aluminium back casing. The Ascend W1 is said to be a mid/high-end device with a 4-inch display (WVGA), a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, a 5-negapixel rear camera, a VGA front camera, and a 2000 mAh battery.
Profile shots of the handset suggest it is quite thin, maybe only slightly thicker than the Samsung ATIV S which is a svelte 8.6 mm. The phone includes Windows Phone branding on its back, but strays away from other devices by having its MicroUSB port not placed directly in the center — something that might deflate rumors of a unified accessory platform.
Check out one more photo after the break, and the remaining four at WMPoweruser.
