Huawei launching U8300 and U8500 Android phones, U9130 and C5600 Brew phones in India
The U8300 features a QVGA landscape display, full QWERTY keypad, Wi-Fi, stereo Bluetooth, 3.2MP camera, MicroSD card support, and an unknown version of Android (possibly 1.6).
The Huawei U8300 will be available in a variety of paint jobs, including the electric green one seen below:
Huawei U8500 is a full-touch device with a 3.2 inch screen, optical trackpad and 3G. No word yet on which version of Android it’s running.
The other two handsets are the Brew-based Huawei U9130 and Huawei C5600. The first one (U9130) is a BlackBerry-styled phone with a QWERTY keypad and social networking integration, while the second one (C5600) is a CDMA candybar. They’re both aimed at young customers.
All four Huawei phones should be available in India starting August 1 through carriers like Airtel, Reliance and Tata.
Update: CellPassion has more details and some live photos. It looks like there will be a total of 20 Huawei phones coming to India starting August. Most of the Android ones will run Android 2.1 at launch. Prices will be between 8,000 INR and 15,000 INR ($170 – $320).
Huawei has chosen to bring its phones to India in an important moment: Indian carriers are getting ready to launch 3G services in key cities. In China, when 3G was launched, smartphone sales soared, so this will probably happen in India, too.
