Images of the Ascend W1, Huawei’s upcoming Windows Phone 8 handset, have been leaked online.

We’ve heard a fair bit about other Windows Phone 8 devices, such as the Lumia 920 (and 820) from Nokia, and HTC’s Windows Phone 8X and 8S.

But this is our first glimpse of the Huawei Ascend W1, and as Unwired View who spotted the pics of the device notes, it does look rather like the HTC models we’ve just mentioned.

Check out the images, courtesy of Blog of Mobile, above. The phone has a quality finish.

The camera is a 5 megapixel affair, and the Ascend W1 will be powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU. It will have a 4 inch WVGA display, and there’ll also be a front-facing camera.

Windows Phone 8 is due to kick off a week on Monday, when a full launch event will detail pricing and release dates on these various handsets (well, hopefully all of them). We’ll be on hand, naturally, to cover that…
