Huawei Ideos X5 and X6 with Android Froyo officially announced (in Australia)

First seen at the end of October, the Huawei Ideos X5 and Ideos X6 are now official, as Huawei has announced them in Australia.

Both smartphones run Android 2.2 Froyo at the moment, but they’ll most likely be updated to Gingerbread after launch – since Gingerbread’s hardware requirements are similar to Froyo’s.

The Huawei Ideos X6 – pictured below – is a high-end device, featuring a 4.1 inch WVGA capacitive display, HSPA (up to 14.4Mbps), Wi-Fi, GPS, Dolby Mobile surround sound, HDMI port, 1GHz processor, and a 5MP camera with HD video recording.

The Ideos X5 is smaller and has a 3.8 inch WVGA screen, HSPA, GPS, Wi-Fi, and a 5MP camera.

Huawei didn’t mention how much the two new Android smartphones would cost, and neither when they’d be available (early next year is a good guess).

    It’s a shame they’re not packing quicker processes. At this time of the year, with reports aplenty of more powerful processors on the horizon, there’s no way I’d buy a 1ghz phone right now.

    I love my HTC Desire, but when I replace it, it simply has to be something more powerful.

    “It’s a shame they’re not packing quicker [processors]… there’s no way I’d buy a 1ghz phone right now.”

    The article neglected to mention this but Huawei is known for their budget devices. Think of this as the best, more or less, of this year’s innovation in phone tech passed on at what will likely be a very affordable price. No, you don’t get cutting edge (i.e. next year) tech because that’s not what these devices are geared toward.

    I hope TMo USA picks up the X6, as it sounds like it would fit in nicely as a mid-end replacement for any number of the lower-end motorola android handsets it’s been carrying.
