Huawei outs Ascend Y200, budget challenger to the Samsung Galaxy Y and LG Optimus L3


It’s a well known secret that most manufacturers make the majority of their cash peddling low-end devices to the masses. This is probably the reason why Huawei has decided to launch their budget device, the Ascend Y200, in the Philippine market. The Ascend Y200 doesn’t have the highest of specs (predictably) but for money (the Ascend Y200 is priced at Php 5,490) it’s already giving you a lot: 3.5-inch, IPS screen, Qualcomm 800MHz processor, 3.2-megapixel camera, Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) Wi-Fi and 3G. In addition, Huawei says that this particular smartphone has a quick, 5-second boot time, and charges completely in just 90 minutes.
