Huawei unveils entry level Ascend G510 smartphone


Huawei’s Ascend G510, which it says is its most powerful low-to mid-tier smartphone, will go on sale with Vodafone from April 12

Huawei has unveiled the Ascend G510 smartphone, an entry-level device to go on sale with Vodafone in the UK tomorrow.

The Huawei Ascend G510 has a 4.5-inch screen, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 170mAh battery.

It has a five megapixel camera, runs on Android Jellybean 4.1 and comes with surround sound to enhance video and gaming experiences.

It will be available from Vodafone for £13 on contract and £130 on prepay.

The device will come with Huawei’s Emotion UI, which allows users to personalise their home screen with the applications they use most often.

Huawei Device UK director of product management James Powell said: “For years, ‘entry-level’ smartphones have meant compromise – phones not powerful enough, with screens not big enough, to be able to truly deliver on the promise of the mobile internet.

“The Ascend G510 is the latest in a line of Huawei smartphones to challenge that, and our most powerful yet in the low-to-mid tier.”
