Huawei has announced that its low-cost Android smartphone, Honour, which touts a longer unplugged life, is now available to customers living in the UK.
The Taiwanese smartphone maker said that the Huawei Honour comes with a 4-inch HD touchscreen display, a 1.4MHz single-core processor, preinstalled Android 2.3 Gingerbread and a durable 1900mAh battery. The company did not say if or when the handset will receive an Android ICS update, but its hardware specifications looks capable enough to handle the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system.
Other notable features of the Honour include an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with HD video recording and LED flash, a 2-megapixel front camera for video calls, 3G HSDPA, Wi-Fi, DLNA and 1GB of embedded memory that still has room for expansion through a microSD card slot.
“The Honour demonstrates Huawei’s commitment to bring new smartphone power and functionality to the masses,” said Huawei’s UK VP Mark Mitchinson. “It combines a fantastic engine with great design and power to burn, and it skimps on no feature. In a connected world that never sleeps, the Honour lasts longer than the rest.”
The Huawei Honour, which costs approximately £250, is now available from several SIM free retailers within the UK.
