A new mid-range Android handset with TracFone branding on it has been revealed by @evleaks, a day ago. On their Twitter account, they have posted an image of Huawei Ascend Plus, an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich phone that could be released for any of two TracFone’s brands, Straight Talk or NET10, since TracFone itself doesn’t offer Androids.
In addition to Android 4.0 platform, according to the posted image, Huawei Ascend Plus features a relatively spacious 4-inch display, 1GHz processor, 5-megapixel camera, 4GB of storage and a microSD card slot for expanding memory additionally.
Huawei Ascend Plus does not impress with its specs when compared with phones that major carriers are offering these days so therefore, it could be considered as an entry-level phone. However, many prepaid users wouldn’t think of it as a starter because only few handsets on Straight Talk and NET10 have higher specs than soon-to-be-added Ascend Plus.
Straight Talk and NET10 already have Huawei Ascend phones in their lineups. Straight Talk, for example, offers Ascend Y for $99.99 and Ascend II for $49.99. The availability and pricing on Huawei Ascend Plus has not been revealed at this point but at least always reliable @evleaks makes us know that Ascend Plus will become part of TracFone soon.
