Huawei Honor with Ice Cream Sandwich to arrive by Valentine’s Day on China Unicom

The Huawei Honor is a really nice mid-level phone available on China Unicom. It’s going to get that much better because Huawei and China Unicom just announced the Ice Cream Sandwich-powered Honor will be available by Valentine’s Day. Kudos to Huawei for getting this done faster than the likes of Motorola, HTC, and Samsung. I guess this can’t be a surprise since we wrote about the ICS demo build a little over a month ago. To refresh your memory, the specs of the Honor include:

  • 4-inch (854 x 480) display
  • 1.4GHz single-core processor
  • 512MB of RAM
  • 4GB of ROM
  • 8MP rear camera
  • 2MP front-facing camera
  • microSD for up to an additional 32GB of storage
  • 1900mAh battery.

Info Leaks on Huawei Honor to Pique Interest

Typically, when one is considering an Android handset (or any handset, for that matter), he or she is going to be looking at the bigger manufacturers like Samsung, HTC, or LG. Now a lot of that is due to word of mouth and brand recognition, but part of it is device quality as well. (I’m looking at you, Kyocera Zio.) Here however, we see a rather impressive leak for a relatively little known manufacturer. Specs in the picture above boast a 1.4GHz processor, a 4 inch display, a 5 megapixel camera complete with 720P video recording, Android 2.3, and  a whopping 1930mAh battery. They’ve also managed to throw all of this into a svelte 9.9 mm thin housing. No word yet on where this phone will be released, but it’ll be a nice addition to someone’s lineup regardless.
