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.

Specs

  • 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.

    Well the picture certainly isn’t any stock android that I know of. Phone itself looks like a straight iPhone copy if you ask me. Considering I bought my beautiful Galaxy Nexus for less than the price of this phone, and that it is now running Jelly Bean, only fools or the unknowing would by this box

      Agreed, and even worse – Huawei’s own Ascend G300 is $169 – is the 0.4GHz + extra 3MP camera worth the extra $240?
