4.5-inch display, 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor in Ascend Y530

Huawei has launched a brightly-colored addition to its smartphone range in Europe, with the two-tone casing and physical design said by Huawei to be aimed at a younger audience. The Ascend Y530 is an entry-level Android smartphone with a 4.5-inch, 480x854-resolution display, with the restrained internal specifications matching its low launch price tag.

Running on Android 4.3 with Huawei's Emotion UI, the Ascend Y530 has a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor clocked at 1.2GHz with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage, reports Phone Arena. A rear-mounted 5-megapixel camera with LED flash is also included, along with a VGA front-facing version, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, a microSD slot, and a 1,750mAh battery.
