The Huawei Ascend G600 has dropped in at the IFA 2012 flush with a dual core CPU, Android ICS and 4.5-inch qHD IPS touchscreen. Although the latest addition to the Ascend lineup is expected to be launched in select markets this month, the company hasn’t given out the list of countries in which the handset will debut.
Going by the specs, it doesn’t look like Huawei intends to place the G600 at the highest end of the Ascend series. The device’s dual core Qualcomm processor is clocked at 1.2GHz and its 930mAh Li-polymer battery is said to deliver up to 15 days of standby time. It can apparently be juiced up to full battery capacity within 4 hours and powered on in roughly 5 seconds.
“We are very excited to introduce the new Huawei Ascend G600, which gives more functionality and power for people who expect more from their technology,” remarked Shao Yang, Chief Marketing Officer, Huawei Device. “Building on the success of the Ascend range of smartphones, the Huawei Ascend G600 is the latest in our range of flagship products that make exceptional product experiences accessible for more people globally.”
The connectivity options packed into the smartphone cover all of the usual facilities like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi Direct, microUSB, DLNA and NFC. It operates with the help of 768MB RAM, while the 4GB ROM is supported by a microSD slot for up to 32GB expandability. Moving our attention to the camera, there’s an 8MP BSI AF snapper on the back panel and the double speakers embedded into the chassis offer DTS surround sound.
The Huawei Ascend G600 release date is expected to fall in September. The phone will be out in color options of white and black.
