The guys at Huawei have been the talk of the Android ”town” these past couple of months, as the Chinese are preparing quite a few launches set to rock the US and European technology markets.
No less than three smartphones from Huawei have gained some kind of certification yesterday and all three gadgets are set to hit global markets in the near future. However, neither of the three is the Ascend D Quad unveiled a while back, advertised as ”the world’s fastest smartphone” and awaited by pretty much all technology geeks worldwide.
The Huawei Ascend Y 100 U8185 is the first device we are going to talk about today and is probably the closest one of the trio to its release. Having passed through the FCC already, the gadget might be launched as soon as next month (April that is).
According to rumors, this is going to be an entry-level budget smartphone powered by a 600 MHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 processor and sporting a 2.8-inch screen with a 240 x 320 pixels resolution. The 2.8-incher will of course run Android 2.3 Gingerbread out of the box and will most likely feature a 3.1 MP camera.
Second up, the Huawei M921 (or M920) has gained Wi-Fi certification and will most likely come to MetroPCS with on-board LTE connectivity. Aside from that, we don’t know much about the smartphone’s tech specs, but it will probably come with a couple nicer features than the U8185 and will target mid-range gadget lovers.
Last, but not least, we have the most interesting product of the trio, the Huawei Ascend D1 U9500. Having been Wi-Fi certified, the smartphone is certainly gearing towards a release, but we will probably not see the gadget officially launched before May or June.
Even though it won’t come with a quad-core processor under its hood, the Ascend D1 should be considered a very high-end device, as it is set to sport a 4.5-inch 720p HD display and feature a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor. The U9500 will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box and will also come with a state of the art 8 MP rear-facing camera.
That’s pretty much all we have to report today about Huawei’s upcoming smartphones, but keep in touch with our website because we should see these devices, as well as a couple more, officially launched during the following weeks.
