Here at Ausdroid we weren’t too surprised to hear that sales of the IDEOS X5 had done exceptionally well, I mean, how could it not? For $300 and those specs, it’s an absolute bargain for what seems to be a quality device — We can’t be certain until we test one for ourselves. Huawei is hoping to ride on this wave of success with the launch of the IDEOS X6 when it’s released sometime during Q2. Huawei Oz didn’t give us much more an indication than telling us to expect it as a bit of a surprise during Q2. We love a bit of a surprise when it comes to tech launches, so we’ll be waiting with bated breath.
The IDEOS X6 is a 4.1″ device running Android 2.2 with HSPA+ network capabilities. It’s powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU and can shoot videos at 720p and then show them via HDMI-out. There are two versions of the X6, one supporting NextG (850MHz) and one that doesn’t, so we won’t know what variant will be available in Oz until it launches.
