Huawei steps in Germany with quad-core G615


Huawei’s been teasing us lowly europeans with its cheap, chinese-only quad-core offerings for a long, long time, but it looks like the chinese maker’s handsets have finally reached our shores. The Huawei G615 is set to debut in Germany early next month. Spec’d very similarly to the company’s Ascend D2 Quad, at 300 euro the smartphone will offer a 4.5-inch Super LCD IPS display (720p) and Android 4.0 (set to get 4.1 in an update), driven by Huawei’s own K3V2 Cortex A9-based quad-core chipset, 1GB RAM and HiSillicon GPU. Memory is 8GB with a microSD slot, the camera is of the 8MP Full HD-capable type, and the battery capacity is 2150mAh. The phone also features Dolby Digital Plus audio.

G615 will be sold in black and white in Amazon, Conrad and Cyberport starting February. Additional stores will get it in March. Hopefully this is the first of the company’s many handsets to come, and we certainly wouldn’t mind ZTE and Oppo‘s phones joining them for a cruise to Europe.
