Huawei showcases its first Windows Phone 8 smartphone
Huawei showcased the Huawei W1, its first Windows Phone 8 smartphone, at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The Huawei W1 is 10.15 mm thin and features a 4-inch IPS LCD 480 x 800 touchscreen with OGS Technology, powered by the high-end Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8230 dual-core 1.2 GHz processor and Adreno 305 GPU.

With a 1950 mAh battery, the Huawei W1 has 470 hours of standby time, which the company says is the longest among all smartphones in its class.

It features an array of bold colors including blue, red, black and white. The Huawei W1 is a smart and stylish alternative for consumers looking for great technology at an entry-point level pricing.

The Huawei W1 has a low reflective IPS LCD display with full lamination technology, which provides visibility under any lighting condition. The Windows Phone 8 Start screen lets you customize and pin Live Tiles with topics of personal interest, providing real-time updates that are uniquely yours. Additionally, a dynamic lock screen allows you to select the photos or updates most important to you and have them ready at a glance, even when the phone is locked.

"Inspired and powered by people, the W1 is a combination of Huawei's user-centric design philosophy and Windows Phone 8 software, bringing consumers a truly compelling alternative," said Richard Yu, CEO, Huawei Consumer Business Group. "The addition of the W1 to our smartphone portfolio gives consumers access to an even wider range of Huawei smartphones. At a price that makes sense to consumers, W1 underscores our commitment to put smartphones within reach of every consumer, no matter who you are or what you want from your phone."

"We are excited to be working with Huawei to further expand our device portfolio to new locations and price points, allowing more people to experience Windows Phone 8 while enjoying the W1's unique features," said Terry Myerson, Corporate Vice President of the Windows Phone Division.

The Huawei W1 will be available in China and Russia from January 2013, with Western Europe, Middle East, USA and other selected countries to follow.
