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.
