The Huawei Honor has now become available in the UK, and it’s pretty affordable. The Honor was first announced last August, and it’s been on sale in certain markets for quite a while now. In fact, since January it’s been sold in China running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. That unfortunately isn’t the case with the version that’s now out in the UK, which still comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread. But an update to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is promised, for what it’s worth.
The Honor, despite having what some in the UK may consider a misspelled name, is still pretty capable even in this day and age. It has a 1.4 GHz single-core processor, a 4-inch 480×854 touchscreen, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of built-in storage space, microSD card support, an 8 MP autofocus camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, a 2 MP front-facing camera, all the usual connectivity options, and a 1,900 mAh battery.
You can get one right now for just £204.99 from Expansys. Naturally, you’ll receive a SIM-free and unlocked smartphone for the price.
