Huawei Ascend Y550 to come to O2 from mid-October

Ascend Y550 standard UI_front_rightangle-small O2 announced today that it will be stocking the Huawei Ascend Y550 from mid-October, which will be available on the O2 Refresh Tariff. The Huawei Ascend Y550 4G Android smartphone is a stylish, simple to use, 4.5 inch touchscreen device, tipped to be exceptional value for money and a perfect choice for first or second time smartphone users.

Users can choose either Huawei’s Standard Android Interface for smartphones or its Simple Android Interface. The Simple version is designed for those who are new to smartphones, as it makes it even easier to access the Ascend Y550’s smartphone features at the touch of a button. The Ascend Y550 also supports superfast 4G data speeds (up to 150Mbps), a 1.2GHz quad core processor and long life 2,000mAh battery allowing you seamless and long lasting access to all your smartphone content and services. This device boasts the latest Google content and service.

With supporting Android KitKat® 4.4 operating system, users can access Google Services and download rich entertainment content at 4G speeds (up to 150Mbps) from Google Play Store, including the latest apps, music, books and movies. It’s also perfect for catch up TV services, such as BBC iPlayer and video on demand services such as YouTube. To view all this content, the Ascend Y550 comes with a 4.5 inch touchscreen for easy viewing, a 5MP main camera with video recording function for easy uploading to social networking sites – and a 2MP front facing camera for selfie lovers.

The Huawei Ascend Y550 will be available on the revolutionary O2 Refresh tariff, which means those who want to upgrade early from another handset need only pay off the remaining value of their handset (rather than the combined value of handset and Airtime for the remaining time on their contract – potentially saving hundreds of pounds to stay bang-up-to-date).
