Now the handset has been officially launched with Android ICS on board – although on in China (via China Unicom). Of course, this means that if you’ve already bought the Honor with Android 2.3 Gingerbread, an update to Ice Cream Sandwich should be available for your device soon.
Starting February (just before Valentine’s Day), Huawei will launch a white edition of the Honor – it’s not clear if this will happen only in China, or around the world.
The Huawei Honor features a 4 inch FWVGA (854 x 480) display, 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS, 8MP rear camera with 720p video recording, front-facing camera, 1.4GHz single-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, and a 1930 mAh battery. The handset is available in the US via Cricket Wireless under the name of Huawei Mercury.
