Huawei Honor Hands-On

Posted by Admin Thursday, November 17, 2011

While Huawei has never been the type of mobile company to get people excited, their upcoming flagship handset does sound intriguing.  Called the Huawei Honor, the new phone boasts serious high-end specs while bringing the promise of more reasonable pricing (at least, we're assuming).
GSM Arena has a write-up about a sample unit, which they've been playing with in their office.  From the sound of things, it's quite the capable Android device, too.

Details include a 4-inch capacitive touchscreen display (16:9 aspect ratio, 854 x 480 resolution), an 8.0 megapixel camera module (with 720p video recording), a front-facing 2.0 megapixel camera, 3G with HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, 4GB of onboard storage, microSD card expansion and a 1900mAh battery unit.  Muscle is provided by a dual-core 1.4GHz processor, paired with 1GB of RAM.
According to the piece, the phone looks an awful lot like the LG Optimus Chic with a slightly not so awesome display.  I do like the longish profile, though, which is a nice break from the wider profile most of the new smartphones show up with.  It will run Android 2.3.5 during launch.

From what we can gather, the Huawei Honor should roll out before the end of the year.  No word on pricing or exact dates, though.
