In the United Kingdom, China’s Huawei has launched a very affordable smartphone which was unveiled last month under the name Ascend Y550.
For £99.99, customers can get the Huawei Ascend Y550 starting from October 15, and that’s a SIM-free, unlocked model.
Spec-wise, the Ascend Y550 sports a 4.5-inch FWVGA (480 x 854 pixels) display, a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2MP secondary camera at the front side.
The smartphone is powered by the new 64-bit budget Snapdragon 410 chipset from Qualcomm. That means you get a 1.2GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU, Adreno 306 graphics, HSPDA+ and LTE despite the small cost of the phone.
For software, the smartphone relies on Android 4.4 KitKat skinned with Huawei’s Emotion UI. And finally, there’s a 2000mAh battery unit to light the whole unit up.
