Huawei unveiled its latest Gingerbread 2.3.5 running device – Honor. Featuring a 16M 16:9 true color 4-inch FWVGA (854×480) capacitive touch screen, the Honor is powered by a good 1900 MAh battery that will outrun most Android smartphones in the same screen-size range.
The heart of the phone is a 1.4 GHz processor with 512MB RAM and 4GB ROM storage. The phone supports external storage media up to 32GB. On the multimedia front, the Honor sports a 8-megapixel HDR2-enabled camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. All this comes in a thin form factor of 0.43in weighing 140gms. The phone also features Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and is 3G capable.
The Honor runs on the Huawei custom interface and among other features include G-sensor, proximity sensor and light sensor.
“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,” said Victor Xu, chief marketing officer of Huawei Device. “Consumers now have a high-performing smartphone that lets them communicate, connect, entertain and share content for an extended period of time without compromising on looks, technology or style.”
Honor will be commercially available in “Classic Black” in Asia-Pacific, China, Russia and the Middle East in Q4, 2011. Honor will be released in more colors closer to the Christmas holidays.
