Altek’s 14MP Android phone to be available this month

Taiwan-based Altek (best known for making digital cameras) is getting ready to launch its first Android smartphone: the A14 Leo.

What’s noteworthy about the Altek A14 Leo is that it has a 14MP autofocus camera with Xenon flash and 3x optical zoom – it’s the first Android handset with such a camera.

The Leo also features a 3.2 inch WVGA multi-touch capacitive display, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, HSDPA, GPS, an 800MHz processor, and MicroSD card support. Unfortunately, the handset runs Android 2.1 Éclair.

Starting this month, the Altek A14 Leo will be available in Taiwan and China. Russia and India should get it in the second quarter of the year.

Below you have some photos of the Altek A14 Leo, as well as a video preview (in Chinese), all found at sogi.com.tw – where you can also see the quality of photos shot with the phone.

According to DigiTimes, Altek plans top release another Android handset before the year’s end, which will be based on Android 2.2 or 2.3. There’s no word on what camera this handset will feature.
