There are tons of smartphones available these days, and Chinese gadget makers Huawei have just announced a new model which will be released in Germany very soon. If you like what you see, then you’ll be happy to know that this phone will probably make its way into other international markets in a short while as well.
The Huawei Ascend G615[DE] has a 4.5-inch 720p IPS display, a proprietary 1.4GHz quad-core CPU, 8GB of storage, 1GB of RAM, and a microSD slot. The phone has a 8MP camera and a 1.3MP front-facing one. The rear camera has a dual LED flash and can record 1080p video. Connectivity includes 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 and HSDPA speeds up to 21Mbps. Its 2150 mAh battery is good enough for 360 hours on standby, and 11 hours of talk time.
Unfortunately, the G615 will ship only with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), so it’s two versions behind the latest edition, Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean). Though if you can deal with that, and its slightly bulky 1.05cm thick case, it actually looks like a pretty decent phone.
When it’s released in Germany, an unlocked phone will retail for €299 (~$400USD).
