Huawei Ascend G710 Leaked to the Web

Huawei isn't sealing its Ascend line of smartphones with the P2, and is certainly far from being set for 2013. The emergence of the mid-range 5-inch segment may have tripped off a rush within the company to ship a new model catering to the $250-ish price point. Enter the Ascend G710. In a segment where Samsung's WVGA-laden Galaxy Grand is gaining footprint; Huawei's G710 boasts of a couple of killer features.

To begin with, the G710's 5-inch screen packs a more eye-pleasing 1280 x 720 pixels resolution. Under its hood is a 1.50 GHz Cortex-A9 quad-core SoC; both of which edge out the Galaxy Grand's WVGA (800 x 480) screen and dual-core SoC. The design itself is given a premium finish, with a monolithic black front, a chrome strip lining its edge, and a brushed aluminum back panel. Other details remain sketchy at the moment.
