Huawei has been churning out affordable Android handsets for some time now, but with the Honor the company may have crossed over to something legitimately tempting. Fronted by a 4-inch WVGA touchscreen and running a 1.4GHz single-core processor, the Honor was originally tipped to come in at around the $300 mark, SIM-free and unlocked, complete with an 8-megapixel main camera.

Up front there's a 2-megapixel camera, while inside you get 512MB of RAM and 4GB of ROM. A microSD card slot and a bundled 160GB of cloud storage help boost that, however. Quadband GSM/EDGE and triband UMTS/HSPA+ (900/AWS/2100) along with WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR round out the wireless options, plus there's A-GPS and the usual bevy of sensors including gravity, proximity and light. An FM radio and dual microphone array, along with DLNA support and a microUSB port round things out.

Huawei says the Honor will launch, in black, in China, Russia and the Middle East come Q4 2011. However more colors will be available by the holiday season, and we wouldn't be surprised to see broader availability too, perhaps as a carrier-rebrand in the US and/or Europe.
