A new Huawei device has been caught in the wild on its way to Cricket Wireless. Unlike other Android smartphones in Cricket’s portfolio, this one comes with a full QWERTY keyboard that sits beneath a 3.2-inch (HVGA?) screen. We’ve no idea what’s inside the device, though I doubt you’ll find a dual-core processor under the hood. After all, Cricket is best known for its affordable phones, which usually cost about $100.
There’s also one other mystery to the Ascend Q – whether it will be able to sing along Muve Music, Cricket’s popular music download service, offering unlimited calls, texts, data and song downloads for $55 per month. At the moment, the carrier offers few Android-powered Muve Music devices, including ZTE Score, ZTE Chorus and Samsung Vitality. As for Huawei-made products in its portfolio, there’s Ascend II and Mercury, both of which are low-to-mid end smartphones. We’ve no idea when the Huawei Ascend Q will be officially announced but it’s likely that will happen sooner rather than later.
