Huawei has long been known as the maker of low to mid-range handsets designed more for their budget price than anything else. While we can’t speak on the pricing aspect (it isn’t known at this point), the Huawei Vision looks to buck that trend. The upcoming handset will feature a 3.7-inch display, 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash and 720p video recording, and a 1GHz Snapdragon MSM 8255 CPU. It’s all packaged in a sleek unibody frame that could give HTC a run for their money.
The Vision, which also features 512MB of RAM and 2GB of internal storage, isn’t the most powerful Android 2.3 phone on the market, but offers a respectable option for those not seeking a dual-core processor among other niceties. The 9.9mm thick Vision gets a custom “3D carousel” interface (we’re imagining something similar to the 3D homescreen transitions in the latest HTC Sense build), though it won’t feature any sort of 3D display technology. The phone is said to drop in September.
Introducing Vision, Huawei’s stylish new smartphone
Huawei’s sexiest smartphone to date also features 3D carousel user-interface
Beijing, 3 August 2011: Huawei, a leading telecom solutions provider, today launched Huawei Vision, Huawei’s stylish new smartphone with a 3D user interface and carousel animation display. Huawei Vision runs on Android Gingerbread 2.3 OS and is supported by 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM 8255-1 GHz processor. With its sleek design and powerful functionality, Huawei Vision is the perfect combination of technology and style.
Huawei Vision has an aluminum alloy uni-body in rose gold, silver or charcoal, and a curve touch design. Vision measures only 9.9mm at its thinnest point and at around 121g, weighs less than a bottle of perfume or aftershave. It supports 720P video recording and features a 5 megapixel auto focus camera with LED flash. With Bluetooth V2.1 with A2DP, high-speed WiFi 802.11b/g/n internet connectivity, and full range of messaging capabilities including SMS, MMS, Email, Push Mail and IM, makes staying connected with friends and family even easier.
“We are very excited to present Vision, the smartphone which strikes the perfect balance between technology and style,” said Victor Xu, chief marketing officer of Huawei Device. “The unique 3D user interface heralds in a new era in Huawei’s leadership, as we continue to create devices that enhance the user experience through stylish design and smart functionality.”
Huawei Vision has a complete 3D mobile phone interface that bundles handset features into 3D panels on the home screen. The interface allows you to select any panel of the home screen with one easy swipe and makes it easy to prioritize the application view to suit your needs. With Vision’s 3D interface, you can explore features and programs with a single tap.
Huawei Vision will be available in selected markets from September. Vision offers access to the full range of Android apps, and comes pre-installed with ‘Angry Birds’, ‘Asphalt 6: Adrenaline’, ‘Order & Chaos Online’, and ‘Guerrilla Bob HD’.
