We’ve still a couple of months to go before we jet off to Barcelona for Mobile World Congress 2012, but Chinese manufacturer Huawei is getting the ball rolling early.
The Huaweians have started firing out invites for their event, and promise their “smartest, fastest and most high-performing smartphone yet". Nice.
To be fair, it won’t take much to outdo Huawei’s previous efforts, such as the Honor, Vision, Blaze and Titan. The Huawei Honor is the highest specced of those chaps, with a 4in display, 1.4GHz processor and 8MP/2MP camera combo.
Interestingly, the Huawei event takes place on Sunday February 26, which is the day before Mobile World Congress gets underway officially. Traditionally, only the big players like Samsung and Sony Ericsson crank it up on the Sunday. Ballsy.
Huawei is being touted as “the next HTC”. The manufacturer has had its handsets network branded in the past, but now it’s out to grab a slice of the limelight.
We recently heard that the Huawei Honor had become one of the first handsets in the world – after the Samsung Galaxy Nexus – to grab a slice of Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). Nicely done, lads.
