Huawei’s New Android Smartphone Boasts Impressive Specs, 3-Day Battery Life
If you were asked to name the most impressive Android smartphones, you would most likely choose devices from the likes of HTC, Motorola or Samsung. But a new device on its way from Huawei could make its way into your list, thanks to its impressive list of specifications, and a battery said to last a whole three days.
The new device is called the Huawei Honor, and I want one! It runs the Android 2.3.5 operating system on a high-definition 4-inch FWVGA display, and is powered by a super speedy 1.4GHz processor. For taking snaps, there’s an impressive 8-megapixel rear-facing camera — HDR-enabled, like the iPhone 4 — and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera for video calling.
The device is only 10.9mm thin and it weights just 140 grams, but its most impressive feat? Huawei claims the Honor will run for a full three days on a single charge thanks to its 1,900mAh battery. And that isn’t just standby time, that’s based on “average” daily use.
Victor Xu, Huawei’s chief marketing officer, said the Honor elevates the smartphone user experience:
“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.”
Admittedly, there are a number of other “high-performing smartphones” that allow you to “communicate, connect, entertain and share content… without compromising on looks, technology or style.” But the Honor certainly looks like it will be up there with the best of them.
That is, of course, when it finally reaches the U.S., which won’t be for a while yet. The Honor is scheduled to arrive in the Asia-Pacific, China, Russia and the Middle East during the fourth quarter of 2011, but there’s currently no word on its U.S. release.
The Honor will be available in “Classic Black” initially, as pictured above, but other colors will be available closer to the Christmas holidays, according the Huawei’s press release.
