Huawei, a network equipment and handset maker, will launch its cloud computing-based Android smartphone this December in India. The smartphone, called Vision, will have a 3D user interface and carousel animation display.
“Huawei vision will be launched in the fourth quarter in India and we have still not finalised its price,” Anand Narang, marketing director of Huawei Devices, told ‘The Mobile Indian’.
Huawei Vision will run on Android Gingerbread 2.3 and will be supported by a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM 8255 processor.
The cloud computing feature of Vision will allow users to download applications without the need for much storage space on their devices as data would be stored on servers rather than on the mobile memory, and will be accessible over the mobile internet or WiFi.
Anand further said, “Vision will not come locked with any telecom operator. Instead it will be bundled with free data usage plans from multiple operators. By this we plan to encourage Indian consumers to experience internet and data services on mobiles.”
Vision has an aluminium alloy uni-body in rose, gold, silver or charcoal, and a curve touch design. It supports 720p video recording and features a 5 megapixel auto focus camera with LED flash.
On the connectivity front it has Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, and messaging capabilities including SMS, MMS, email, push mail and IM.
Huawei Vision has a 3D mobile phone interface that bundles handset features into 3D panels on the home screen. The interface allows you to select any panel of the home screen with one swipe and makes it easy to prioritize the application view.
The device will come installed with popular games — Angry Birds, Asphalt 6: Adrenaline, Order and Chaos Online, and Guerrilla Bob HD.
On the availability of Huawei phones in retail outlets in India, Anand said, “As of now we have presence in 10 cities where we have tie ups with different multi-brand outlets and by the time we launch Huawei Vision we would have presence in around 35 cities across the country.”
