Huawei, has just a few weeks after announcing its new 7″ MediaPad – the world’s first Android 3.2 tablet, 10.5mm thick and powered by a dual-core 1.2GHz processor – has now announced its new “Vision” smartphone.
Huawei Vision has an aluminum alloy uni-body in rose gold, silver or charcoal, and a curve touch design. Vision measures only 9.9mm at its thinnest point and at around 121g, weighs less than a bottle of perfume or aftershave. It supports 720P video recording and features a 5 megapixel auto focus camera with LED flash. With Bluetooth V2.1 with A2DP, high-speed WiFi 802.11b/g/n internet connectivity, and full range of messaging capabilities including SMS, MMS, Email, Push Mail and IM, makes staying connected with friends and family even easier.
Huawei Vision is supported by 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM 8255-1 GHz processor. other specs: a 3.7″ capacitive touchscreen, 5MP auto-focus camera with LED flash and 720p video recording (and a front-facing camera too).
On the connectivity side of things, there’s everything you’d expect from a smartphone these days, including b/g/n Wi-Fi, A-GPS, FM radio tuner, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, and micro-USB 2.0 port; there’s also 512MB of RAM and 2GB of ROM, plus a microSD slot supporting cards up to 32GB.
Vision is controlled through Huawei’s custom UI – which it refers to as a “3D user interface and carousel animation display”, but given the absence of a 3D-capable screen (at least, according to their current spec sheet), don’t expect that carousel to be jumping off the screen at you any time soon. Still, the inclusion of four games – Angry Birds, Order & Chaos Online, Asphalt 6: Adrenaline, and Guerrilla Bob HD – is a welcome addition.
Huawei says the Vision will be available in selected markets from September. Although the company hasn’t officially announced pricing, one UK e-tailer, SuperEtrader.co.uk, is accepting pre-orders for £335 (around $550) including tax.
