Huawei is looking to bring Android 2.2 to the mid-range handset market, and will be announcing their upcoming U8150 (a phone that recently passed through the FCC) at this year’s IFA in Berlin. Known for their cheap to dirt-cheap Android smartphones, the U8150 looks to be no different offering a 2.8 -inch capacitive touchscreen, 528 MHz processor, and 3.2MP camera. Huawei isn’t known for their huge presence in the US, but they have been doing a nice job carving out a space for themselves in emerging markets and with consumers looking for a low-priced but still feature packed phone.
We have recently seen Huawei start to show up in more places, so chances are this Froyo-clad phone could make its way to a larger distribution. GCF and FCC documentation suggest we should see it in Europe and the States at some point. No word on exact release date or pricing as of yet, but expect this one to fall pretty low on the pricing spectrum.
