Huawei Ascend Y530 that was unveiled earlier this year had a 4.5-inch FWVGA screen, powered by a Snapdragon 200 processor and runs on Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean). It is not clear why Huawei has switched to MediaTek CPU for the Y600 since both come under Y series. Also the 5-megapixel rear camera lacks LED flash. Looking at the specification, it is likely to be be priced affordably.
