Huawei Ascend G510 to hit Philippine retail shops at P5,990

Almost a month after Sun Cellular started offering the Huawei Ascend G510 for free at Sun Plan 450, the Android smartphone is heading for retail stores this week. And true to Huawei's promise to bring decent functionality, form factor, and firepower to the bargain-basement market, the company is putting a low P5,990 price tag on the Ascend G510. 

The handset already runs Android Jelly Bean and is powered by a dual-core Snapdragon MSM8225 chipset clocked at 1.2GHz. The IPS screen is as big as the Nokia Lumia 920's at 4.5 inches. Combine that with DTS surround sound, and you have an entertainment device on your hands.

If the 4GB internal memory is not enough for your apps, there's always the Huawei Ascend G510's microSD slot, which accepts up to 32GB cards.

The 512MB RAM may be another cause for concern. However, you need to remind yourself that you're looking at a P5,990 smartphone. So if you need an affordable device with a relatively large display, you probably want to check out this Ascend. 

Those who want to get the Ascend G510 on a plan can still avail themselves of the phone from Sun Cellular. We also got word that Globe Telecom will be offering the Huawei on contract this week.

  • Dual-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8225
  • 512MB RAM
