Huawei Ascend W1 has already leaked a bunch of times, first in a blurry shot, then in a specs list and then through an official press render courtesy of @evleaks. Today we get two more hands on pictures, also revealing an interesting looking white version of the handset.

This Chinese Windows Phone 8 device will supposedly come at CES 2013, accompanied by a model called Huawei W2, a higher end unit. Notice the Nokia-style cyan huge of the blue version and HTC allure of the back of the device. You should know that the rumors have said this model is supposed to hit T-Mobile in the future. Huawei Ascend W1 comes with a 4 inch WVGA display with a dual core 1.2 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of native memory, rear and front cameras with 5 MP and 0.3 megapixel resolutions respectively.

There’s also a 2000 mAh battery on board. Huawei has an interesting situation on its hands, as it was recently accused of spying for the Chinese government and threatens with a ban of the manufacturer in Canada. Interestingly enough they’re working just fine with Microsoft apparently…
