Huawei may have been absent from the Windows Phone 8 launch but that doesn’t mean they don’t have other cool products for you to talk about. Enter the Huawei Honor 2 — a premium Android smartphone that should help the Chinese manufacturer keep up with the competition.
Recently unveiled in their home country, the Huawei Honor 2 is the successor to the well-received Honor smartphone. Previously speculated to have a 6.1-inch display, the device ended up with a still impressive 4.5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 at 326ppi. Rumors about the Huawei Honor 2 having 2 GB of RAM proved to be half true; the device will have a default RAM of 1 GB but Huawei is reportedly planning to produce 2 GB variants in limited numbers.
Other features of the Huawei Honor 2 include the Chinese company’s own K3V2 1.4GHz quad-core processor, 8 GB internal storage (expandable via microSD), an 8 MP/1.3 MP camera combo and a massive 2230 mAh battery. The device will be running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box but is expected to have an upgrade to Jelly Bean in the near future.
We almost forgot to mention that despite the high-end specs on the Huawei Honor 2, it will only cost 1,888 yuan or around $300. Not bad for a quad-core device.
No word yet if the device will see an international release but interested Chinese smartphone enthusiasts should expect the Android smartphone to head their way in early November.
