Chinese tech company has silently released a mid range smartphone called the Huawei Ascend Y540 in the Netherlands. Following the specifications of the handset, it seems the device is a modified version of the Huawei Ascend Y520 with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 chipset and 1GB RAM instead of a MediaTek processor and 512MB memory and that’s probably why the phone maker didn’t bother to publicize it.
