Does a certain Huawei phone think it can quietly get FCC approval and not show up on our radars? Not at Talk Android folks. We already have the interesting Huawei Honor here in the States (under the name of the Huawei Mercury for US Cellular), but a variation of the phone will possibly be arriving with some new threads underneath. The Huawei Honor has gotten the OK from the FCC and will be on its way as a GSM version– sporting WCDMA 850/1900 bands. This indicates the device would likely be part of AT&T’s lineup, that is if AT&T wants to even sell the device in its stores. Of course since the Honor will likely be among the first Huawei devices with Ice Cream Sandwich, it would definitely be a phone of interest for AT&T.
The phone has some impressive specs too. Under the hood, you’ll find a 1.4GHz single-core processor, 4-inch FWVGA (854 x 480) display, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory and a 8MP camera with a front-facing camera included. Of course Ice Cream Sandwich is only available on the Honor in the Chinese markets, but you can expect an immediate update for all markets shortly after. No further details for now, so stay tuned with Talk Android as we provide more updates on the device.
