The entire specifications point out that we are dealing with a mid-end device, w hich many specs including the processor, amount of RAM and ROM,  have been sacrificed to keep the price as low as possible.

Under the hood, it is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200, along with Adreno 203 GPU and 512MB of RAM, which all of them together are responsible to run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and Huawei's own made launcher, Emotion UI, smooth and without lag. Note tha, since we are talking about a budget phone, you should lower your expectations.

Design wise, Ascend Y530 does have a cool design as it has a two-color design and judging by the photos, we should expect the handset to come in 4 different combinations of colors, which are: Black and Yellow, Black and Red, Black and Gray, and White and Gray.


There are not much more to say about Huawei Ascend Y530 and the budget phone will be available to purchase in Germany first in March and more European countries are expected to offer the device after that. The suggested retail price in Germany is about $200, which can get more users to consider this colorful Huawei device as a winner in its class.
