According to those who had a hands-on the build-quality is pretty good, and not far of HTCâ€™s latest Windows Phone 8 handsets.
The Huawei Ascend W1 is said to have aÂ 4-inch WVGA screen, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and a 5-megapixel camera, 512 MB of RAM, 4GB of on board storage, and a 2000 mAh battery.
Another interesting claim, which I cant verify as I cant read Chinese, is the claim that HTCâ€™s Windows Phones now ship with the ability and option to keep WIFI aliveÂ even when the device is locked, a much desired feature for which Microsoft recently promised a fix and which needed to be hacked in so far.
Update: We can confirm the setting does indeed say:Â “Keep WiFi on when screen is locked”
