Huawei-Ascend-G510-top.jpgHuawei have just revealed release date and pricing information for their budget wonder, the Huawei Ascend G510.

First spotted at this year’s MWC 2013 show, it’ll set you back a mere £130 on PAYG, or free on £13 a month contracts from Vodafone.

You’d be forgiven for thinking that at such low prices the phone wouldn’t be up to much, but it’s actually packing an impressive spec sheet for the price.

With a 4.5-inch display, it’s powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, running Android Jelly Bean version 4.1 and even supporting wireless NFC tech.

4GB of storage is onboard, which can be expanded by microSD cards, while there’s a 5MP camera on the rear and 1,750mAh battery under the hood. It’s not too shabby then, though Huawei’s Android re-skinning wont be for all tastes.

Launching on April 12th, Vodafone UK are the only announced carrier so far. Expect to see the G510 go up against other budget devices including Huawei’s own Ascend W1 as well as the HTC Desire C, Orange San Diego and ZTE Blade 3.
