Huawei has reportedly launched the
successor to the Ascend Y530, the
Ascend Y540, in the Netherlands.
A Dutch publication named GSM
Helpdesk claims that the handset is now
available to buy in local markets at a
price of EUR 109 (approximately Rs.
7,700). So far there has been no
announcement from Huawei .
A support page on the Huawei site for
the Ascend Y540 is now also live, tippin
an imminent launch announcement from
the Chinese company.
According to the Dutch publication (via
GSMArena), the Huawei Ascend Y540
features a 4.5-inch WVGA (480x854
pixels), which is identical to the display
on the Huawei Ascend Y530 launched
last year. Under the hood, the Huawei
Ascend Y540 is said to be powered by a
1.3GHz dual-core processor, which is a
minor upgrade from the Ascend Y530's
1.2GHz clock speed. The company has
upgraded the RAM on the Ascend Y540,
which includes 1GB of RAM.
The dual-SIM based Huawei Ascend
Y540 comes with dual-SIM support and
also supports dual standby. There is a
1950mAh battery backing the device.
Much like the Huawei Ascend Y530 , the
Ascend Y540 also sports a 5-megapixel
rear camera alongside a 0.3-megapixel
front camera. There is 4GB of inbuilt
storage further expandable via microSD
card (up to 32GB). The handset is said t
support dual 3G bands; though no
mention of the 4G support.
Huawei earlier this month launched an
metal-clad smartphone , the Huawei
C199S in China for CNY 2,299
(approximately Rs. 22,600). The dual-
SIM Huawei C199S runs EMUI 3.0
skinned on top of Android 4.4 KitKat,
and features a 5.5-inch HD (720x1280
pixels) IPS display. It is powered by a
64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 615
(MSM8928) processor clocked at 1.5GH
coupled with 2GB of RAM.
