Huawei is one of the Chinese manufacturers that have been present in Barcelona, back in February, during the Mobile World Congress. At the event, the company has lifted the veil on a handful of new products, including the new MediaPad tablet line-up. The “Glory” smartphone line-up has been going pretty strong too, but now with the arrival of a new wave of devices (such as the Galaxy S5 and the HTC One M8), Huawei seems to be preparing for a follow-up.
In our constant digging for new information we’ve recently come across a handful of new pictures depicting what seems to be a new Huawei smartphone. The most interesting thing about this mysterious device is the fact that it seems to borrow a page from Samsung’s playbook. Take a look at the shots below and see for yourself.
New Huawei Smartphone Surfaces – Faux Leather in Tow
Yup, what you’re looking at, ladies and gents, is a new Huawei smartphone which is apparently referred to as an “upgrade” over the Glory 3X (or a “refresh”). The device is rumored to be retailed under the “Glory 3X Pro” moniker once it hits the shelves, and as you can all see, the smartphone features a faux leather back panel, with fake stitching and all. Needless to say, the alleged “Glory 3X Pro’s” design is heavily “inspired” by Samsung’s own Galaxy Note 3.
As far as the hardware specs go, word on the street is that the device will feature a 5.5 inch display with a resolution of 1080p, a MediaTek MT6592 octa-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. In the camera department, the handset is said to feature a 13 MP main unit, complemented by a 5 MP front-facing sensor.
Last but not least, recent rumors have also suggested that this new member in Huawei’s family of smartphones will cost somewhere around 1699 yuan, or about $US 272.
