FCC filing reveals the dual-SIM capable Huawei U8520 powered by Android
AT&T customers will soon have the fine opportunity of picking up the budget friendly Huawei Impulse 4G when it launches on September 18th, but interestingly enough, we might see yet another Huawei Android smartphone coming to market with something especially unique.

Specifically, a recent FCC filing reveals the Huawei U8520 Android 2.2 Froyo smartphone, which has support for WCDMA II and V bands (1900/850MHz). So what does that mean? Well, it can potentially be launched by the various GSM carriers scattered across North America – with even AT&T possibly getting in on it as well.

Moreover, the filing mentions the Huawei U8520 featuring an HVGA display, 1GHz processor, 3-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, and GPS. Even though it’s nothing all that inspiring to say the least, it’s able to perk things a bit due to the fact that it’s also dual-SIM capable – meaning, you can throw 2 SIM card into it. However, it’s noted that only one of the SIM card slots boasts 3G support, with the other one simply allowing you to only connect to GSM networks.

Mainly due to the notion of it packing dual-SIM slots, it’s unlikely to be launched in North America since these types of devices aren’t widely in demand within the region. Still, it’s probably going to be launched abroad in markets like China and Australia seeing that it appears on some web sites over there.
