Newly outed G250 shows Huawei hasn’t abandoned budget phones

With all the high-end devices Huawei has revealed lately, it’s easy to forget the company’s core business has long revolved around low-cost handsets geared toward emerging markets. Even with such mammoth devices as the Huawei Ascend Mate and Huawei Ascend D2, we can still expect a share of phones targeted towards lower price tiers. With the newly outed Huawei G250, that doesn’t necessarily mean specs will be sacrificed.

The handset, which is destined for China, will be priced around $225 and carries a 1.2GHz quad-core Mediatek chip, the MT6589 to be exact. The display will measure in at 4.5 inches of unspecified resolution. A 5MP camera will handle the photo capture duties, while other hardware features have not been disclosed.

The phone will launch to decidedly less fanfare than it’s bigger brothers on January 21st around China. There don’t seem to be any plans at the moment, but the G250 could make an excellent candidate to be repackaged with different branding for an American carrier such as T-Mobile.
