High-end Huawei Glory with Android Gingerbread headed to Cricket

Cricket Wireless is certainly not known for offering high-end smartphones, so I was surprised to find out that the regional US carrier is getting ready to launch the Huawei Glory (aka Huawei M886).

Now, Huawei usually makes low-to mid-end phones (like the Ascend, released by Cricket at the end of last year), but the Glory is a high-end device and, fortunately, it’s also affordable.

Expected to be available at Cricket in November, the Huawei Glory will come with Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread (upgradeable to Android Ice Cream Sandwich), a 1.4-GHz Qualcomm processor, 4 inch WVGA display, Wi-FI, GPS, 8MP autofocus camera, 2GB of on-board memory, and a 1900 mAh battery.

According to PC Mag, the Glory is “very, very fast”. And it should be, with a processor like that (it’s not yet clear if it’s single-core or dual-core – Huawei says it’s the latter).

Reportedly, Cricket will launch the Huawei Glory for about $300 (no contract required, of course). Huawei didn’t say if it plans to release the smartphone in other markets, via other carriers, but it most probably will.
