Following up on some leaked press shots, Huawei today announced its latest Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread smartphone called the Honor. The Honor packs a 16M 16:9 true color high-definition (HD) 4-inch FWVGA capacitive touch screen. Here are some other specs:
- 1.4 GHz processor
- 8-megapixel HDR-enabled camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera
- A sleek 10.9 mm-thin body and weighs just 140g
- Exclusive Huawei user interface
Although the specs on the Honor are impressive, the most intriguing feature is perhaps its 1,900 mAh battery. Huawei says its Honor “frees consumers from the inconvenience of searching for an electricity source, allowing them to share and connect for up to three days on a single charge.” The company is claiming to have the longest battery life among smartphones in the 4-inch screen range. I’ll believe it when I see it.
Discussing the its lofty battery claim, Victor Xu, chief marketing officer of Huawei Device said in a release:
“Huawei Honor encapsulates the Huawei brand – it features simple-to-use, advanced technology that allows people to share and connect easily. Honor provides a package of features that elevates the smartphone user experience, including an ultra-long battery life, so critical to the performance of smartphones but yet is often downplayed.”
Honestly, if Huawei has mastered the art of battery life lasting an entire day, then this phone without a doubt will have to be considered a game-changer. As a consumer of powerhouse phones I would have to say this is awesome, if true.
