Huawei Honor U8860 runs Android Gingerbread, might get Android Ice Cream Sandwich
The Huawei Glory, which should become available in the US via Cricket in November, will also be introduced in other markets, but under a different name: Huawei Honor U8860.
The Honor U8860 has been officially announced in China, where it will be launched soon.
According to Huawei, the Honor will come with “Android 2.3 or above” – this may mean the company plans to upgrade it to Android Ice Cream Sandwich when it’s released. Other features of the handset include a 4 inch FWVGA (854 x 480) display, Wi-Fi, GPS, 1.4GHz processor, 8MP rear camera, 720p video recording, and a 2MP front-facing camera – all in a 9.9mm thin case.
The new smartphone has 900 / 2100 MHz HSDPA connectivity, so it could come to Europe, too. Since Cricket plans to sell its Glory for about $300 off-contract, the Huawei Honor will probably be quite affordable as well.
