Huawei and O2 have teamed to release two budget handsets due to hit O2’s store shelves exclusively: the Huawei Ascend Y 100 the Huawei G 7105.
Huawei’s Ascend family was heavily fleshed out at the start of 2012 with the introduction of new premium devices such as the Huawei Ascend P1 S and D Quad, the Ascend Y 100 is a neat little entry-level smartphone.
The Ascend Y 100 offers up a 2.8-inch display, but runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread with Huawei’s own tweaks and changes on top and of course access to Google Play’s 500,000+ apps. Imaging is improved with a 2-megapixel camera on the back capable of video at 30fps and HSDPA. Those who purchase an Ascend Y will also get to design their own custom back cover free of charge.
A diminutive touchscreen feature phone the G 7105 offers users a 2.8-inch LCD, a 1.3-megapixel camera, 4GBs of onboard storage and room for expandable memory, there’s also Bluetooth, but no mention of Wi-Fi connectivity. It has a web browser in the form of Opera Mini, which means even the smallest of data allowances will likely suffice for the target user.
Both devices will be available exclusively on O2, with the G 7105 available from tomorrow for just £39.99 in white at launch and later in pink. Those after the Ascend Y 100, will have to wait a little longer as it isn’t set to launch until June 1st, but when it does it’ll be available for £79.99 or free on a £10 a month contract.
