Huawei to our surprise went ahead and released the first official Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for their flagship device Huawei Honor. With this release Huawei has become the first manufacturer to release the ICS update for any Android device other than the Nexus. On top of that the interesting fact is, Huawei Honor is not yet released and before that the update rolled out. The Chinese firm will put the Honor on sale from next week onwards.
Huawei also released the Gingerbread updates for Huawei Ideos X5 U880 and U880 pro recently. But all of those updates and the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich are still in beta mode. Huawei has released beta versions for users to give it a try and it worked well enough. In case if anything goes wrong then Huawei also has provided Gingerbread ROM to get the previous version back.
Let me put on some light on the specs of Huawei Honor. Being a flagship device the Huawei Honor has 1.4 GHz Scorpion processor, 512MB RAM, 1GB internal memory, 4 inch capacitive touch screen and 8MP camera with Auto Focus, LED Flash. All basic connectivity features are also included.
The company has put the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update for download on their official website. The device will be in stores by this month in China. The carrier for Huawei Honor is China Unicom. So as soon as you get the device in your hand, don’t forget that ICS is waiting for it.
