Dick Smith has started selling the Huawei Honor for $399 outright. The phone comes with Android 2.3 as standard but according to GSM Arena an Ice Cream Sandwich update is available for the Huawei Honor. The specs are in a little bit of dispute the DSE Website lists the CPU as a 1.4GHz Snapdragon (as does GSMArena) however the Huawei Mobile page lists it as an 800MHz CPU, I’ve emailed Huawei for clarification.
- 4″ FWVGA(854×480) screen
- 1.4GHz Snapdragon CPU
- 8MP HDR Camera with Auto, 0.3MP Front Facing Camera
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 A2DP Stereo
- microSD Card Slot
- 121 x 61.5 x 10.9mm @ 140grams
- 1900mAh Li-ion Battery
- Android 2.3
Spec wise the screen resolution is a litte odd but the 4″ form factor is quite a comfortable size based on my old Nexus S. Not sure exactly where this handset is aimed at at this price range but a stock Android experience has been the norm for most Huawei phones so far and this should be no exception. We’ll be attempting to get one of these to take for a spin and let you know what it’s like.
