Huawei have recently introduced a budget phone to their range, which uses the latest Mediatek dual-core MT6517 CPU.
The Huawei T8830 Huawei’s attempt at grabbing a share of the low-cost Android phone market in China, which is now dominated by the likes of JiaYu, Zopo, Mogu, Newman and others. To keep costs down, the T8830 gets a dual-core MT6517 CPU, 512MB ram and 3.2 mega-pixel camera.
Screen size is 4 inches with a resolution of 800 x 480 with a Gorilla Glass style anti scratch layer. Android 4.0 ICS is comes pre-installed.
I can see that Huawei have tried to enter a very competitive market and had to lower specifications here and their, but for the features the T8830 offers the $104 price tag is just too much! For example the JiaYu G2 costs just $100 with a dual-core MT6577 CPU and 5 mega-pixel camera and the newer Jiayu G2s get’s 4.1 Jelly Bean, 1GB RAM and an 8 mega-pixel camera!
