The W1 measures 10.15mm thick and has a 1,950mAh battery. Huawei claims its 470 hours of standby time is longer than any other Windows Phone. The W1 also includes a 5-megapixel main camera with a flash and a VGA user-facing camera. It includes 4GB of on-board storage and supports microSD cards up to 32GB. It will be available in multiple colors.

The Ascend W1 goes on sale in Russia and other countries later this month, and should reach the U.S. later this year. Pricing and carrier details were not provided.
