Last month, we heard some rumors about a pretty compelling Android from Huawei, featuring a 4.9-inch 1080p display and measuring just 6.3 millimeters thick. We didn’t have a name at the time, but were told that Huawei might be ready to announce the phone as soon as this month. Well, that still hasn’t happened yet, but now some new rumors have us wondering if there could be a lot more to that phone’s story.
Supposedly, Huawei is working on a stylish aluminum unibody phone, in the spirit of the HTC One. This handset would reportedly be called the EDGE, and it’s notable for having all of its rumored specs (4.9-inch 1080p screen, quad-core SoC, 2600mAh battery, 13-megapixel camera, and 6.3 millimeter thickness) line-up precisely with that previously-rumored Huawei model.
Except, this time, the EDGE is isn’t supposed to arrive until the second half of the year. So, are these rumored Huawei Androids one-and-the-same? Right now, we can’t say with any certainty, though it’s certainly possible.
We also wonder if EDGE is just a code name, because it’s just a little silly to name a smartphone after a term already in use in the mobile industry; what’s next, the Huawei HSPA?
