huawei-honor-2.jpgA new week, a new Huawei smartphone! The Chinese phone maker have just revealed the Huawei Honor 2, and it’s looking to sit comfortably among the Android elite if its spec-sheet is anything to go by.

For starters, it’s packing an impressive-sounding 326ppi display at 4.5-inches in size; which should be slightly sharper than even the iPhone 5’s 326 pip 4.87-inch Retina display.

Processing speeds look sturdy too thanks to the inclusion of a Huawei-built K3V2 1.4GHz quad-core chip, a significant improvement over the original Honor’s single-core chip, backed by 2GB of RAM.

A BSI 8-megapixel camera sensor, capable of burst shots and full HD 1080p video capture, sits on the rear, and though there’s only 8GB of onboard storage, microSD expansion is available.

72-hours of standby time suggests a very strong battery life, particularly for a device pushing so many pixels off a quad-core processor.

Pre-orders open in China this week priced at 1,888 yen (around £190), which sounds affordable though there’s no word yet on a UK release. We’ll keep you posted.
