Today Huawei launches the Honor, an Android smartphone with budget on its mind.
So far we've taken the previously announced Huawei Honor for a single-core handset (our test unit runs on a single-core platform too), but today Huawei announced on its Facebook page that the retail Honor will be powered by a dual-core processor, ticking at 1.4GHz. Update: Huawei denied that. In a reply to an inquiry on Facebook, the company confirmed that the Honor has a single-core processor.. There's also 1GB of RAM and 4GB of user memory, expandable via the microSD slot. The front of the device is taken by the 4-inch 16:9 FWVGA capacitive touch screen. The image quality isn't going to win any awards, but it's bearable, especially if it comes with a reasonable price tag.
At the back there's an 8MP camera, capable of shooting 720p HD video. It has HDR functionality built straight in. Beneath the cover there's a 1900mAh battery providing juice. At the front Huawei has thrown 2MP cam for video chatting, which is also welcome. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 and microUSB are also on board, which is to be expected for a device running Anrdoid 2.3.5.
As you can see, we actually have the pleasure of meeting the Honor at our office. So, naturally, here come our hands-on shots.
We don't know about you, but to us it looks an awful lot like the LG Optimus Chic.
The Honor launches globally sporting a classic black color, with more to come later in the year. Pricing is yet unknown, but as with all Huawei devices, this one should be reasonably priced too.
