Huawei Honor gets the honor of shipping with Android 4.0 ICS, but in China only

Huawei Honor gets the honor of shipping with Android 4.0 ICS, but in China only
Last month, the Huawei Honor became official as the Chinese company happily showed off the handset running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich only a month after the ICS source code was released. Well, the wait to buy this smartphone is finally over now that it has the prestigious honor of shipping with the most up-to-date version of Android – albeit, it’s only being sold in China right now.

Normally, most of Huawei’s devices tend to receive little attention because they’re usually forgettable low to mid-range devices, but with the Huawei Honor, it seemingly sits on the same pedestal as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. That’s due to the fact that it’s the second smartphone launched with Android 4.0 ICS in tow right out of the box – as opposed to getting an update for it later on.

China Unicom customers will have the first crack at picking up this smartphone, but for those who prefer the all-white version of the handset, they’ll need to wait just a tab bit longer. Specifically, the all-white Huawei Honor is mentioned to launch just before Valentine’s Day, though, it’s not explicitly known if it’ll be launch globally or simply in China only again.

Above all, the fact that it’s running ICS from the get-go will surely entice people, but its hardware specs hardly pushes the envelope.  In fact, it features a 4” FWVGA (480 x 854) display, single-core 1.4GHz processor, 512MB RAM, 8-megapixel rear camera, front-facing camera, 720p video recording, 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS, FM radio, 4GB of internal storage, and a 1,930 mAh battery.
