Huawei had joined the smartphone party and entered straight in to the Android lounge. Not to be confused with Nokia’s X series phones, Huawei has launched, Ideos X5 and Ideos X6 – two Android phones in India. Price remains to be X, as it is not yet revealed. X5 and X6 will be running Android Froyo joining LG Optimus One club – phones running Froyo out of the box.
The phones look slick and specifications on these babies are impeccable. Let’s dive in :
Powered by Qualcomm MSM7230 800 MHz processor, Ideos X5 has a wide 3.8 inch WVGA capacitive touch screen and 512 MB RAM and ROM. It’s a 3G phone with assisted GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are on board. 5 megapixel camera with auto focus and LED flash will quench the appetite of camera fans.
Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 1 GHz processor, Ideos X6 has a wide 4.1 inch WVGA capacitive touch screen and 512 MB RAM and ROM. It’s a 3G phone with assisted GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are on board. X6 has5 megapixel camera with auto focus and LED flash. Ideos X6 joins the gigahertz club which is getting stronger.
Difference between Ideos X5 and Ideos X6
Screen size : X5 has a 3.8 inch screen and X6 has a 4.1 inch screen. Both are widescreens by normal smartphone standards – which has an average screen size of 3.2 inches.
Processor : X5 has 800 MHz processor and X6 has a vulgar 1 GHz processor. Both are high speed processors when compared to the phones launched in the past six months.
Price : With the obvious differences in features, I expect X5 to be priced higher than X6.
Nokia has an X series going on for it. Why did Huawei choose the same series? Couldn’t they come up with an original naming convention? Just curious.
Are they any good?
On the paper, Ideos phones look excellent. It’s hard to decide on them yet as it all boils down to price. It’s just not me who is price sensitive but the whole India is, which is ratified by Google’s search results. Let’s wait for the price to pass out a verdict. Without price we don’t know where it fits in the Android India club.
