Huawei Honor shows off AT&T 3G bands on trip to FCC

Huawei Honor shows off AT&T 3G bands on trip to FCC
Already known to Cricket customers as the Huawei Mercury, the GSM version of the same handset visited the FCC the other day as the Huawei Honor. This model of the handset was equipped with AT&T's 3G bands, although that doesn't necessarily mean that the carrier plans on adding the device to its lineup. With the smartphone supporting the WCDMA 850 / 1900 bands, at least on the model presented to the FCC, this could end up available in the States as an unlocked handset if AT&T passes on it.

One of Huawei's best spec'd Android models, the Huawei Honor features a 4 inch 480 x 854 LCD screen with a pixel density of 245ppi. A single-core 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor is running the show and 512MB of RAM is aboard. The 8MP AF camera on back captures video at 720p, and there is a 2MP camera up front for those who like to take self portraits or engage in video chat. 4GB of native storage comes with the handset, and that can be pumped up using a microSD card. The Huawei Honor is running Ice Cream Sandwich in China only, as we already told you, and an update to Android 4.0 should be coming soon to all markets.
