The Huawei Ascend G-600 another dual core handset but with single SIM support, 4.5 inch qHD touchscreen, 8MP camera and running on ICS OS will soon be available in India. The handset can be pre-booked from flipkart for a price of Rs. 14,990 (expected release date by 3rd week of Jan).

This is a single SIM handset with micro SIM slot. The handset weighs 145 grams and is 10.5mm thick. The Huawei Ascend G-600 comes with 768MB memory with 4GB internal storage. The G-600 sports a 4.5 inch qHD (960×540 pixels – 245ppi) capacitive IPS multi touch touchscreen with corning Gorilla glass and 16M colours.

The handset weighs 145 grams with 10.5mm thickness. A 1.2 GHz dual core processor powers the handset running on Android 4.0.4 OS. Features that come loaded are 3G, 2G, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, 3.5mm audio jack, stereo speakers, SNS ready and noise cancellation.

There is an 8MP primary camera with dual LED flash and a front 0.3MP secondary camera for video chat. The flipkart site says it can record video in 640×480 pixels resolution only which is kind of disappointing.

The battery is of 1930 mAh Li-ion that should be enough to keep the handset going for a full day with moderate usage. The price of 14,990 does seem high; specs are good except that you cannot record videos in 720p resolution. In fact for around the same price there are handsets with 1GB RAM (even cheaper) with hd video recording support. I don’t think it’s worth buying.
