Huawei shows off its 4-inch Honor, Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread phone

Huawei has introduced a new Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread phone – the Huawei Honor. Featuring a 4-inch FWVGA (480x854 pixel) 16M colour capacitive touchscreen, the not too diminutive phone runs on a 1.4GHz single-core processor and 512MB of RAM, and packs a whopping 1,900 mAh battery that should give it a rather healthy life between recharges.

The Huawei Honor features an 8MP autofocus camera that is supposedly capable of HDR photography, though just how well that would work without a tripod remains to be seen. It also has a 2MP front-facing camera. It comes with 4GB of storage space built-in, which is expandable up to 32GB via microSD.

Other features include stereo FM radio with RDS, a document viewer, photo editor, a gyroscope for gaming, a digital compass, GPS with A-GPS, a proximity sensor, Bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP and EDR, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with DLNA and Wi-Fi hotspot functionality. The Huawei Honor weighs in at 140 grams, is 10.9mm thick.

Huawei has not announced a price for the device, but it is expected to give tough competition to mid-range Android devices when it launches sometime in Q4 2011, in Asia Pacific, China, Russia and the Middle East.
