Huawei has already set its eyes on the Philippines and there's no stopping the Chinese electronics giant now from going head-to-head against Samsung, O+, LG, and HTC for Android smartphone market dominance in the country.

Last January, the company released three powerhouse handsets, namely Huawei Ascend P1, Huawei Ascend P1 LTE, and Huawei Ascend D1, to compete in the high-end echelon. And earlier this week, we saw the launch of the cute yet feature-packed Huawei Ascend Y300 for the entry level category.


"A lot of young consumers have been put off by the entry-level smartphones and [their] limited features," shared Mr. Johnson Ma, Country Manager of Huawei Device Philippines. "By making everything smooth, latest, and powerpacked, the Ascend Y300 increases the level of satisfaction felt to an entry-level smartphones. Anyone would be surprised and happy by Huawei Ascend Y300’s solid and premium feel."


Priced at only Php 5,490, Huawei Ascend Y300 comes with a pretty decent set of technical specifications and a gamut of features that students and yuppies will surely appreciate. The Dual SIM Dual Standby smartphone runs the buttery-smooth Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system with a Dual-Core 1 GHz Qualcomm MSM8225 chipset, handles multi-tasking with 512 MB of RAM, flaunts a 4-inch IPS LCD display protected by scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass touchscreen, and comes replete with a 5 MegaPixel main autofocus camera with LED flash, 0.3 MP front-facing snapper, HD video recorder, WiFi and 3G connectivity support, Bluetooth, GPS, and a rather large 1,750 mAh removable battery pack for extended uptime.


But what sets Huawei Ascend Y300 apart from other handsets in its price echelon is that it features Huawei's very own Emotion User Interface (UI) serving as skin for its Android OS. With Emotion UI, everything is easy to find, easy to enjoy, and easy to share. You can enjoy the vivid display and have fun stamping your own identity on your phone by customizing its home screens, widgets, and themes.

Huawei Ascend Y300 is now available at all authorized Huawei retail stores and partners nationwide. I'll tell you more about this handset on TechPinas soon so kindly stay tuned!
