Huawei launches Vision smartphone

Huawei has been releasing phones in the UK since the middle of 2010 without really achieving a major breakthrough on these shores. The Chinese company is no doubt hoping that the Huawei Vision will be the one to make the giant leap.

Described by the manufacturer as a 'perfect combination of technology and style', the Vision is an Android 2.3 Gingerbread handset, complete with an aluminum alloy uni-body in rose gold, silver or charcoal and a 'curve touch' design. Other specs include a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM 8255 processor, a five-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash and the option to shoot 720p video recording. Bluetooth V2.1 with A2DP, Wi-Fi and what's described as a 'unique 3D user interface' are also on board.

According to Huawei, that interface 'bundles' handset features into 3D panels on the home screen, allowing you to select any panel of the home screen with one quick swipe, as well as being able to prioritise the application view. Something we need to get hands-on with to really get the lowdown, but it certainly sounds like an interesting selling point.

The Huawei Vision will be available in selected markets from September, which is likely to include the UK. No price as yet, but it's likely to be hovering around the middle of the Android spectrum when it does land.
