Huawei’s Ascend Y520 has made its way to Optus Pre-Paid in the lead-up to Christmas, and it may make an ideal purchase for kids or family members at the friendly price of just $119. Whilst the Huawei Ascend Y520 isn’t going to break any awards for high end features, however it does offer some pretty decent specs for a descent price.
The full list of specs include:
- 4.5-inch FWVGA (854 x 480)
- Dual Core 1.3GHz
- 512MB RAM
- 4GB Memory, expandable to 32GB via microSD
- 5MP Rear camera, 0.3MP Front facing
- Android 4.4 (Kit Kat)
- WiFi: 802.11b/802.11g/802.11n, Bluetooth v4.0
- 1730mAh Battery
- Cellular Radio:
2G: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
3G: 900/2100 MHz
- Dimensions: 134.2 × 67 × 10.3 mm @ 160g
I have to say that it is good to see Android 4.4 (Kit Kat) rolling out to low end pre-paid devices from here on in, and I applaud Huawei for this. Though on the other hand only having 512MB RAM is certainly a surprise; for this price I would have expected to see at least 1GB RAM. 512MB doesn’t leave a lot of room to play with on KitKat, and may mean that more resource-hungry apps won’t work too well. For everyone else, though, this should be ideal!
