OK, so it might be a bit of stretch to take the words from Star Wars III to depict the Huawei Honor smartphone as (still) Chancellor Palpatine squared off with Jedi Master Mace Windu, delivering the killing blow of Force Lighting after Windu had an amputation procedure performed by Anakin Skywalker, but I could not help myself since its 1,900mAh battery is its main selling point.
Huawei claims up to 3 days of use on a single charge, making it boast the longest battery life among smartphones that fall under the 4″ display category. Of course, the context in which a phone is used plays a huge role in determining the battery life, but I do hope to get hold of a unit to find out for myself. Hardware-wise, the Huawei Honor comes with a 1.4GHz processor, an 8-megapixel camera at the back that does HD video recording as well, a 2-megapixel camera up front, all crammed into a body that is 10.9mm thin while tipping the scales at 140 grams.
It will have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity thrown into the mix, accompanied by 512MB RAM, 4GB ROM, a microSD memory card slot, a micro USB 2.0 port, 3G support, and run on Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread. No idea on pricing just yet , but expect it to come in just one color ala Ford Model T – as it arrives in China, Russia and the Middle East at the end of this year.
