Huawei has been selling their pretty decent phones for comparatively ridiculously cheap, and guess what, their latest flagship phone looks very similar to an iPhone. The best part? It packs a 1.4GHz processor under a 4-inch display. Enjoy the video and additional hands-on gallery below.
The Honor runs Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread on top of a single-core 1.4GHz processor, packs a 4-inch FWVGA (854 X 480) capacitive screen, an 8-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front camera, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage with microSD memory expansion up to 32GB, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, FM radio, and a hefty 1900mAh battery. The Gingerbread powered handset is a bit thicker than some of its competitors, measuring in at 10.9mm at its thinnest point, weighing in at .03 lbs. What’s more, it has a handful of frequencies, including GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 /1900 and the WCDMA/HSPA+ 900 / AWS / 2100 bands (compatible with T-Mobile’s US 3G).
Its 2-megapixel front-facing shooter should give you some high-quality video chat.
The 8 megapixel rear facing camera supports 720p video recording.
The 4 capacitive buttons at the bottom are more than enough to distinguish it from an iPhone.
It is also quite thin at 10.9mm, but that’s definitely thicker than the iPhone 4 and Samsung Galaxy S2.
The phone will first ship in black with more color offerings to follow. Huawei added that the Hono comes with an “exclusive Huawei user interface with a weather widget”, that sounds like the 3D UI we see on the Huawei Vision. And the Honor should be hitting Asia-Pacific, China, Russia, and the Middle East in the fourth quarter, that’s Christmas season! For the pricing, there’s no word on it yet, but we’re guessing it should cost less than $400. However, for that price point, there are many better choices out there. Even the dual-core Xiaomi phone is just 2,000 yuan ($313). So, this thing will fail if it costs more than the Xiaomi phone. Huawei, got that?
