Huawei announced the Honor 2 smartphone today, which is due to hit stores in China on November 4 for 1888 yuan (or $302).
The Huawei Honor 2 has a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM (with a 1 GB option available for some reason), 8 GB of local storage, a 2230 mAh battery, and a 4.5-inch 1280 x 720 IPS display which works out to an impressive 326 pixels per inch. Gleaning the awkwardly-translated Weibo updates from Huawei, it sounds like they're boasting 72 hours of battery life, which would also be a great selling point if true. The phone measures 10.5 mm thick and has an 8 megapixel camera on the back. The only real downside is that's running Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. Overall, the Honor 2 a significant step up from the original, even though odds are we won't be seeing it outside of China any time soon. T-Mobile has a Huawei device launching soon, but it's more likely to be an entry-level device.
For those of you that know Chinese, there's a video demo of the Huawei Honor 2 over here, or you can check out an early review here. Those are some pretty solid specs given the price. Anybody in China thinking of picking one up? What are the odds of an international launch eventually?
