i believe this is Huawei W1-U00.
there are other variants of Huawei W1 out there (i have Huawei W1-C00 which is a CDMA version of this handset),
so i think GSM Arena should state it in its specs sheet.
Nokia lumia are the best........don't waste your money on any other brand.

Huawei Ascend W1
Pros: Fantastic Value, Beautiful Unibody, Nice Screen (for the price), Good Processing Power (For the Price), Good Battery
Cons: Slightly less RAM than what would be ideal for a Windows 8 phone + Just Black Model in NZL
Rating: 4.5 Stars
With a Dual-core processor, a acceptable 4.0 screen, fantastic high-end battery and beautiful uni-body and build quality, the Ascend P1 is some thing I would buy for $400 without frowning (at $500 there is the HTC Alternative- the 8S) Sadly there is a slight lack of RAM and the only color is blue in NZ (don't get me wrong, it's a great electric color but will definitely earn you a few stares) There is definitively not enough storage, but with a Micro SD Slot, the size of this problem will be smaller. For $400 these would definitly make me think twice about if I would, infact, go with the HTC 8S, but since it itself only sells for an RRP of $299 outright (not to mention the usual 2Degrees' promos), this would probably be my choice - if I had $30 spare for a SD card.
Hope this review was helpful! :-)
Now avail in jarirbookstore for sr699 the cheapest among windows8 I guess? cool! :)
