And possibly some cast-iron specs
Apparently the Ascend W2 was found chilling out at Mobile Asia Expo 2012, complete with a full spec sheet and a third colour option, red, to go along with the previously leaked yellow and blue.
The details which accompanied the Ascend W2 at the show revealed that it's running a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and 512MB of RAM which is responsible for churning through Windows Phone 8 on the 4.3-inch WVGA display.
There's also apparently 8GB of storage inside the handset which measures a reasonable 134 x 66.7 x 9.9 mm, and Huawei reckons its got a long lasting battery too.
According to the paraphernalia which was snapped at the Expo, the Ascend W2 is being touted as "the first low-cost smartphone with Windows Phone 8 for TD".
However the Nokia Lumia 520 and less-powerful Ascend W1 are both cheap WP8 devices, but the "for TD" part may refer to a specific frequency used in China which the other two handset may not currently support.
The Chinese firm is yet to officially announce the handset, but it's probably only a matter of time before we see the Huawei Ascend W2 confirmed.
