After showing off two high-end flagship devices at the CES 2013, Huawei goes back to its home country and launches an affordable quad-core smartphone, the G520. Given the price tag of 1399 Chinese Yuan (US$225), it does make sense that the phone packs a Cortex A7-based MediaTek MT6589 with a PowerVR SGX544 GPU, instead of using the company’s own HiSense processor.
The G520 features a 4.5-inch 854×480 touchscreen IPS display and a 5 Megapixel main camera with LED flash and a 0.3 Megapixel front-facing camera. Intended for China market, the phone supports GSM and TD-SCDMA mobile networks. Bluetooth and WiFi are also included. The smartphone runs Android 4.1
Huawei will release the G520 on 21 January.
