Vodafone 845 (aka Huawei Joy) Delightfully Small, Photos Leaked


We first heard about the Vodafone 845 about a month ago and the rumors came with a few solid specs that proved correct: 2.8″ QVGA screen, 3.2MP cam, and otherwise budget Android that actually packs Android 2.1! The folks at TheUnwired have snagged a half dozen photos of the phone which will be the smallest Android 2.1 packing phone on launch:

Branded for Vodafone, the 845 will actually be manufactured by Huawei as the Huawei Joy. That of course opens the door for other carriers to pick up the “Huawei Joy” or offer their own branding, but Voda may have an exclusive on this – we’ll see.

Check out that button layout! The Home/Back key are merged into one (homecoming key? let’s you go back/home!). It has a menu key, optical trackpad, and two “crescent” shaped buttons on the far left and far right – I’ll let you take a guess at what those might do for you.

Many of you are probably wondering exactly how “small/compact” this thing really is – TheUnwired say the dimensions are 100 x 55 x 13 mm which would make it even smaller than the HTC Tattoo. And don’t forget it has 2.1! We’re hoping for a Q2 2010 launch.

  1. Hope this means that Huawei will release 2.1 for the (T-Mobile) Pulse fairly soon. We’ve been waiting for ages for an upgrade!

  2. The specs and size look scarily similar to the T-Mobile Pulse Mini that is being teased on the T-Mobile UK website at the moment.
