It’s not the Ascend D that we were hoping for, but new droids are always welcome. Huawei’s Honour U8860 and the Ideos X5 Pro are now available in India on online stores, like Flipkart. The Honour retails for Rs.19,990 and the Ideos X5 Pro sits at Rs.13,800. The Huawei Ideos X5 Pro is the replacement to the Ideos X5, which now features a faster 1GHz processor and comes pre-installed with Gingerbread. The Honour, on the other hand is a higher-end Android and is all set to compete with the Sony Ericsson Neo V, HTC One V and Samsung Galaxy S Plus.Two new droids from Huawei

The Huawei Ideos X5 Pro is not much of an upgrade from the old phone and a minor speed bump doesn’t seem like much. However, it’s now a good alternative to the Sony Ericson Live with Walkman since the features are pretty much the same but with the Huawei, you do get a bigger and higher resolution screen, which is a big bonus of the Live with Walkman.

Here are some of the highlights of the phone:

  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • 1GHz Scorpion processor
  • 3.8-inch display with a resolution of 480 x 800
  • 5MP camera with AF, LED flash and 720p HD video recording
  • 1.5GB Internal memory
  • 512 MB RAM
  • Wi-Fi, DLNA, micro-USB 2.0
  • 1500 mAh battery

The Huawei Honour, on the other hand sits between the HTC One V and the Samsung Galaxy S Plus, but offers better features than both. Compared to the HTC One V, it has a larger 4-inch screen with a higher resolution and a faster 1.4GHz processor. You also get a better 8MP camera and unlike the Galaxy S Plus, there’s an LED flash present as well. It also has a larger capacity battery, compared to both of them at 1930mAh. It has all the makings of a very good droid in that price range, but seeing a phone on paper and in the real world are two very different things. However, given Huawei’s track record, they have been known for some good handsets, so it should be good.

Here are some of the highlights of the phone:

  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread (upgradable to 4.0)
  • 1.4GHz Scorpion processor
  • 4-inch display with a resolution of 480 x 854
  • 8MP camera with AF, LED flash and 720p HD video recording
  • 1GB Internal memory
  • 512 MB RAM
  • Wi-Fi, DLNA, micro-USB 2.0
  • 1930 mAh battery
