Rebranded Ascend G710 adds GSM, CDMA support,

Huawei has unveiled a new smartphone destined for the Chinese market. The A199, said to be a renamed version of the Ascend G710 that leaked late in February by evleaks, appears to bear a remarkable similarity to the leaked G700 in both looks and specification, using a five-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280x720.

Running on Android 4.1, the A199 is said by The Droid Guy to have Huawei's own quad-core processor running at 1.5GHz with 2GB of RAM. The 8-megapixel rear camera is joined by 8GB of storage, expandable to 32GB via microSD, a 2,150mAh battery, GSM and CDMA support, GPS, dual-sim support, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, all fitting into a device with an overall weight of 160g (5.6 ounces).

Huawei will be putting the device on sale in China later this week at an undisclosed price, and is likely to spread to other developing markets in the region. It is uncertain if the A199 will make its way to the Americas or Europe in its current form.
