Huawei U8520 (Android with dual SIM) unveiled by the FCC

Huawei introduced lots of Android phones until now, but none of them feature dual SIM capabilities. Well, the new Huawei U8520 does. Unveiled by the FCC recently (User Manual included), the U8520 runs Android 2.2, and comes with a HVGA display, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3MP camera, and a 1GHz processor.

Only one of the phone’s SIM card slots supports 3G, while the other one lets you use your SIM only on GSM networks.

Interestingly, the U8520 features WCDMA II and WCDMA V connectivity (1900 / 850 MHz), so theoretically it could be launched by AT&T, or most of the major Canadian mobile carriers. However, since dual SIM phones aren’t that popular in North America, I don’t think this will happen. But we’ll let you know if it does.

The Huawei U8520 appears on some Chinese and Australian websites, thus it may be released in China and Australia soon.

    I am from Australia, researching for a dual sim phone for a while now. I had one once but it was not good quality. This is the first dual sim phone I have seen that supports 3G. I think the reason that the dual sim phones are not so popular is because they are not up to date, or are not good quality. Its great that huawei are doing this in 3G, but I will reserve my judgement for when this phone has been tested for a while.
