So what are you getting for your hard earned cash? How about a 5 inch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280. Under the hood is a quad-core 1.3GHz MT6582 MediaTek processor, and inside is 1GB of RAM with 4GB of native storage. Android 4.2.2 is pre-installed (no typo, sorry!). The phone runs on GSM and TD-SCDMA bands, which means it is earmarked for China Mobile, but could be offered internationally if Huawei so desires.
At 9.45mm thick, this is not a pocket stuffer like ye olde Sony Xperia X10 mini (16mm thick), but it is no Gionee GN9005 either. You can check out pictures of the phone from its TENNA certification, by clicking on the slideshow below.
Thanks for the tip, Zami!
