Huawei X1 U8180 “Gaga” with Android unveiled by the FCC
Huawei has a new Android smartphone that’s been approved by the FCC earlier today. The smartphone is referred to as Huawei X1, Huawei U8180, and Huawei Gaga (Huawei has even trademarked this name in the US, so it will probably use it there – unless Lady Gaga has something to say about that).
For now, the FCC approved the X1 to work only on the 850 / 1900 GSM, and 850 WCDMA bands, thus US availability is still uncertain.
The X1 U8180 Gaga runs Android 2.2 and features a 2.8 inch QVGA touchscreen display, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3.5mm headset jack, 3.2MP camera, a 528MHz processor, and MicroSD card support – yes, these specs make it a low-end smartphone.
Portuguese carrier Optimus has recently launched the Huawei X1 as Optimus Stockholm, and it’s said that Orange will introduce the handset, too, in its European markets. We’ll let you know when (or if) the smartphone hits North America.
