Connectivity options include HDDPA/HSUPA, WiFi (802.11 b/g/n); and Bluetooth 2.1. The 1750mAh battery features Huawei’s power saving technology that promises 14 days of standby time on 3G; and its auto-search base station technology finds signal quicker.

The Ascend G510 has features for the sight impaired, in the form of the Talkback App, that has audible menu commands.

The handset comes in phantom black and ceramic white, and will be available locally in July from Edgars or CNA stores nationwide; and via mobile operators.
