Huawei announces mid-range Ascend Y620S 4G handset

Tackling the mid-range of the market, the Huawei Ascend Y620S is a 4G handset with a 5-inch HD screen, 4G connectivity, and a price which is expected to be around £150 to £200.

Announced at the IFA technology trade show in Berlin, the Y620S runs Android 4.4 KitKat and, although the screen resolution os 720p HD and not the full 1080p found on other phones of this size, it looks great for the price.

The phone is powered by the same 1.2GHz, quad-core Snapdragon processor found in the cheaper Y550, also announced at IFA this week; there’s 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, but fortunately this can be boosted by up to 32GB thanks to a microSD card slot.

Huawei will be selling the Y620S in black and white, and both models - although plastic - have a textured rear cover which looks and feels a bit like leather, similar to the back of last year’s Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

We’re told the Y620S will go on sale in the UK in October.
