There is a new Android smartphone bound for launch on U.S. Cellular – the Huawei C8820. Prying eyes have spotted the device on the Bluetooth SIG web page, where some of its specs have been listed along with a press photo.
What we know about the Huawei C8820 so far is that it has Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G, and Bluetooth, just like... pretty much every Android smartphone out there. The presence of a microSD slot for storage expansion is more than welcome. Upon taking a closer look at the photo we noticed a front-facing camera located at the unit's upper right-hand corner.
What is more interesting about the device, however, is that it comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, so owners will be getting the most up-to-date Android experience without the need to wait for an update that may take ages to arrive
. U.S. Cellular has yet to add an ICS smartphone to its portfolio, and this might as well be it.
Further details such as launch date and in-depth hardware specs remain unknown, and we might have to wait until U.S. Cellular makes the Huawei C8820 official. Pricing is also a mystery, but given that previous Huawei devices have aimed for great value-for-money ratio, we expect this one to follow suit.
