Huawei has been making mid-range smartphones for years now, but that trend seems to be ending with its soon to be released Huawei Vision. The Vision won’t pack serious power under the hood like the EVO 3D or Galaxy S2, but it will be an upgrade from previous Huawei phones, and bring some respectable features to the market.
The soon to be released Huawei Vision will feature a 3.7-inch 3D user interface and carousel animation display, 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash and 720p video recording, 1,400 mAh battery, and a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM 8255 CPU. And oh, Gingerbread 2.3 will be on board as well. All of this will be tucked away in a sleek unibody frame.
Furthermore, The Vision will have 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, 512MB of RAM, 2GB of ROM, a microSD slot capable of holding 32GB, and a micro-USB 2.0 socket. Huawei is also planning to go all out when it comes to color availability of its back cover: silver, gold and charcoal are on the menu.
The most intriguing feature of the Vision will clearly be the “3D interface.” In the PR, the 3D feature is explained as having “a complete 3D mobile phone interface that bundles handset features into 3D panels on the home screen.” Also adding that “the interface allows you to select any panel of the home screen with one easy swipe and makes it easy to prioritize the application view to suit your needs.”
The functionality sounds a lot like HTC Sense 3.0. But it’s met to be seen if the Vision will run a true 3D experience much like the EVO 3D. We don’t have a clue as to what the price point will be, but judging from Huawei’s past with price we wouldn’t be at all surprised if this bad boy launched with a pretty affordable price compared to the other handsets currently on the market.
