This is the Huawei Ascend G620. It's an Android KitKat phone with 4G LTE for nippy data speeds, and a 5-inch display to really help you enjoy a spot of Netflix on the move.

We expect the phone to cost around €150, which converts to roughly £120, $200 or AU$21o. It goes on sale later this year.

With a 5-inch display, the G620S isn't the most compact of phones. It's slim though, so can squeeze into your pocket fairly easily.

The phone is made entirely of plastic, which has been given a textured effect a little reminiscent of leather.

That's an 8-megapixel camera sat on the back.

It comes with Android KitKat, over which Huawei has slapped its Emotion UI software.

Emotion UI is visually very different from standard Android, most notably in the fact that there's no app tray. All your apps and widgets have to be kept on the home screens, like an iPhone.

It's not exactly the most stylish of phones, but I've seen certainly seen worse.

There's a 2-megapixel camera on the front to help you get those amazing selfies.

The back panel is removable. Underneath it is where you'll find the microSD card slot.
