Huawei Vision smartphone
Now here at Techin5, we’ve actually covered two Huawei smartphones before because they’ve been cheap and they ran well. You can see those articles with the Huawei X5 and the Huawei Ideos. We were impressed with those phones because they were cheaper than most Android phones, and today we’re looking at another Huawei phone which isn’t aiming for the lower range of smartphones. Quite the opposite in fact, as the Huawei Vision is actually aiming to become the next big smartphone!
Now while the Huawei Vision might not trump the Samsung Galaxy S 2 in terms of raw power and speed, it does have a few other tricks up it’s sleeve that should make up for the lack of processor speed. Starting with the aluminum alloy uni-body in rose gold, silver or charcoal, the Vision feature’s a 3.7-inch capacitive touch screen, a 5 megapixel camera (with video recording capabilities of up to 720p), a powerful 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor (MSM 8225), and a 1,400mAh battery to keep your phone chugging away. It’s worth mentioning that the Vision is also running on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), which is the latest OS you can get for Android as of now.
Other feature’s include the usual bluetooth 2.1, 512MB of RAM, 2GB of storage (although the phone has an expandable microSD slot capable of storage up to 32GB), GPS, FM Radio, and proximity and light sensors. It measures 9.9 millimeters at its thinnest point, which is slightly bigger than the Galaxy S2, but it only weights 121 grams which is extremely light (Galaxy S 2 is 155 grams). One of the other features that Huawei are boasting about, is that the phone has a 3D interface (although it’s not exactly a 3D display so it might just upscale 2D to 3D).
If this phone has got you excited, expect it to be released in September, in selected markets.
