Huawei seem to have a bee in their bonnet about Xiaomi and their amazing popularity, so much so that they are releasing phones to directly compete with the Beijing based start-up like the quad-core Huawei G700.
Xiaomi launched their latest entry-level Android phone last month, and since then the phone has been selling like mad. We are of course talking about the Xiaomi M2A, a 4.7-inch Snapdragon 600 phone which packs features even the top-of the range M2S doesn’t have!
Huawei are hoping to steal some of the Xiaomi’s thunder with the Huawei G700, and they could succeed thanks to the phone giants retail and manufacturing power! The G700 is a Mediatek based phone running the 1.2Ghz quad-core MT6589 CPU, with 2GB RAM, 8GB ROM, and 5-inch 720HD display.
Measuring in at 142.5 x 72.5 x 8.95mm the G700 is slightly larger than the M2A and it seems that the inclusion of 2GB RAM and a 5-inch display has eaten in to the camera budget as the main sensor is rumoured to be 5 mega-pixel! This is a serious disappointment as with an 8 mega-pixel shooter the budget Huawei could have been a real Xiaomi alternative!
