Huawei have decided to move against the flow of MT6577 phone and have decided to spec the new Huawei G510 with a qualcomm dual-core chip.
Mediatek may have the dual-core (and possibly quad-core) low-cost market segment sewn up in China, but the CPU does have its issues. Numerous complaints of users not getting quality GPS signal and lack of international support for chips like the MT6577 make them only really usable here in China.
Fortunately not all Chinese brands are contact with the Chinese market alone, and want to grab themselves a share of the international smartphone market.
Gizchina News of the week
Huawei’s latest dual-core phone, the Huawei G510, could be a great option for international buyers looking for a low-cost Chinese phone, but without sacrificing performance.
Rather than using the popular MT6577 dual-core CPU, Huawei have chosen a Qualcomm 1.2Ghz CPU. Full specification is not yet available but the phone does get a 4.5 inch display, 1700mAh battery and runs Android 4.0.4.
For those of you interested in the G510 be sure to check that the version you are looking at is in fact the Qualcomm model, as Huawei have also launched a China Mobiile specific MT6577 model with just 512mb RAM for the local Chinese market.
