When we reviewed the Huawei Honor last year, we were quite surprised how responsive and well-thought its user interface was. More importantly, we also realized how fast Chinese consumer electronics companies like Huawei are growing and thriving in today’s tough market. Today, Huawei is announcing the Huawei Honor 2, an Android smartphone that’s powered by its very own K3V2 quad-core chip that has been clocked at 1.4GHz.
The Huawei Honor 2 sports a 4.5-inch IPS display with a 1280 x 720 resolution – not to mention its Retina display-breaking 326 pixels per inch – and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera as well as a 1.3-megapixel front camera. Other features include 1GB of RAM, 8GB of onboard storage, microSD support, a 2,230mAh battery, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
