Huawei T8301

The guys at Huawei are probably the busiest bees right now on the technology market, with their numerous products popping up everywhere. What’s more interesting is that the Chinese look as if they are trying their best to come up with very varied devices.

That’s why it’s no surprise that, after having officially met a quad-core slate, a pair of very good-looking medium to high-end smartphones and a quad-core phone and after picking up leaks and speculations regarding a mid-range tablet and a mid-range smartphone, we are now faced with another gadget, which looks like an entry to medium-level phone.

The Huawei T8301 smartphone has just gotten Bluetooth certification and, taking a look at its codename, but also at its first couple of photos, it’s pretty clear that this isn’t a handheld to hold your breath for.

As a matter of fact, I am willing to bet my life on the fact that the T8301 will be just a tad better than the T8300 released in 2011. For those of you who haven’t heard of that handheld, you should know that it came with a 3.2 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen display with 480 x 320 pixels resolution and that it was powered by a pretty modest Marvell 800 Mhz processor.

Other features included the running of Android Gingerbread, a 3.15 MP rear-facing camera, as well as 512 MB of RAM and 512 MB of on-board memory.

Now, it’s pretty difficult to tell what exactly will be the areas improved by the T8301, but the design looks about the same. The new guy should also run Android 2.3, like its ‘’father’’, and feature Bluetooth 2.1, 2G and 3G connectivity.

Hopefully, the guys at Huawei will manage to squeeze in a snappier processor and/or a better camera on the back of the T8301, while keeping the phone’s price down, because if those things won’t happen, I can’t imagine who would want such an outdated gadget these days.
