Huawei unveils new Honor Android Smartphone
Chinese communications technology company Huawei have just announced the latest addition to their existing range of Android powered smartphones with the new Honor handset.
The Huawei Honor will run on Android 2.3.5 (Gingerbread), which has a customised Huawei UI which the company say will allow much easier customisation and management, improving usability.
The Honor will also feature a 4-inch FQVGA capacitive touch screen, along with a 1.4GHz CPU and will be powered by a 1900mAh battery, which Huawei say is the longest battery life to feature on a smartphone within the 4-inch screen range; therefore you can expect to have a three day range before having to re-charge the phone.
You’ll also get an 8MP camera which is HDR (High Dynamic Range) enabled, thus giving you very vivid colour and detail when capturing photos. Above the screen there is a 2MP front facing camera for all your video calling needs. The handset also features DLNA, allowing you to easily connect the device to compatible DLNA devices to stream media content hassle free. The Honor is also a slender device, having a sleek 10.9mm-thin body and weighing only 140 grams.
Victor Xu, chief marketing officer of Huawei Device 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, 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.”
