Huawei Honor Powers Up Q4: US & Europe To See?

Huawei, which was originally founded in 1988 and based in China is now bringing out a new mobile phone handset to add to its other devices. Ok, so the name may not be one that automatically springs to mind and many would say with other big names such as Samsung, Motorola and of course Apple, that Huawei would just wither away into the background, but the new “Honor” mobile device is definitely worth a mention.

Huawei’s devices are perhaps not given the recognition that they quite rightly deserve here at OSM. Its not that we dislike them or even think that they lack capability, but lately some big players such as Samsung’s Galaxy S II smartphone, Motorola’s Droid Bionic and Apple’s iPhone 5 have been hogging the limelight. Back in June we brought you news about a new tablet from the Chinese company which includes some pretty cool specifications. Running on Android’s 3.2 OS with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 7-inch display giving it the edge over Apple’s iPad 2 in terms of size, two cameras and so on, the new MediaPad as its named has positioned itself onto the current market.

Today’s new Android Honor smartphone according to comes complete with a 4-inch WVGA screen, 1.4GHz processor but of the single variety, 5 megapixel rear camera and 2 megapixel to the front, DLNA compatibility data which as reported can be transferred between devices without the need for wires, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of ROM, as slashgear reported a microSD card slot with bundled 160GB of cloud storage, variation of colors although initially it will release in Black, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, Gyroscope for gaming and what stands the Honor out from its rivals, is that of a three day battery life, yep you heard it right!

Huawei are keen to emphasize this fact to potential customers, the battery lasting for a good three days will be the first smartphone with a 4-inch display to be able to do this. In a brief statement from Huawei’s Victor Xu it was said, “Huawei Honor encapsulates the Huawei brand – it features simple-to-use, advanced technology that allows people to share and connect easily. Honor provides a package of features that elevates the smartphone user experience, including an ultra-long battery life, so critical to the performance of smartphones but yet is often downplayed.”

As it stands, we have no concrete information to give you in terms of pricing or availability, but reports are indicating to a UK release sometime in 2012. Slashgear on the other hand have reported the Honor coming in at around $300 approximately, with a release in China, Russia and the Middle East Q4 of this year, with news of the US/UK markets further down the line.
