Froyo-driven Huawei IDEOS X5 and IDEOS X6 unleashed
Huawei is obviously trying to get bigger in the smartphone game. The company just revealed the Android-powered Huawei IDEOS X5 and the IDEOS X6, which, along with the U8150 IDEOS we saw last month, should help expand its market share.
The Huawei IDEOS X6 is certainly the more interesting of the two with its large 4.1-inch capacitive touchcreen of WVGA resolution, promising 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, and 512MB of RAM. It runs the latest (so far) version of the Android OS - v.2.2 (a.k.a. Froyo), which means the web browser sports Adobe Flash 10.1 and you can install apps on the memory card.
The 10mm thin Huawei IDEOS X6 also features a 5 megapixel autofocus snapper with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, a built-in GPS receiver, HDMI and microUSB ports as well as support for HSPA, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The device should show up in January 2011 in Hong Kong first but worldwide availability should follow soon after that. Unfortunately, "not too expensive" is all we know about the price at this stage.
The cheaper Huawei IDEOS X5 will too serve Froyo and will be equipped with a bit smaller, 3.8-inch touchscreen. Like the X6, the X5 will offer all-you-can-eat connectivity (including support for HSPA, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and an inbuilt GPS receiver) and, a 5MP snapper.
The Huawei IDEOS X5 should start shipping by the end of 2010 but its price is still a mystery.
