Huawei Y635 for affordable 4G LTE in a 5-inch form (pictures)

The Huawei Y635 is easy on the wallet and connects to the Internet over faster 4G, but it's still a pretty basic smartphone.

The new Huawei Y635 was announced today at Mobile World Congress. It'll set you back somewhere in the region of £120, which is around $160 or AU$200. Huawei hasn't yet said where it will go on sale.

Round the back is a 5-megapixel camera.

The 5-inch, 854x480-pixel screen offers just 195 pixels per inch, so no high definition movies or games for you.

It's powered by a relatively weedy 1.2GHz quad-core chip.

It's an entry-level phone, so the specs aren't eye-popping.

On the bright side, the low-power processor and screen will help the beefy battery last even longer.
