Next-gen Huawei Glory to be 8 core 5.5″ phablet, but with not the best display resolution!

More details of the upcoming 8 core Huawei phone have emerged, confirming 2GB RAM and a lacklustre 720p 5.5-inch screen!

Reason why we say lacklustre is because out of all possible display resolutions Huawei could’ve gone for (1080p being the prime candidate of course), they chose a 2011-esque 720p resolution on the 5.5-inch screen of this 8 core device which will account for a rather poor pixel density for a phablet of this day and age! The octa-core processor will be none other than the 1.7GHz Mediatek MT6592, which, along with 2GB of RAM will make for a more than decent setup (screen resolution being the only gripe!). The phone will get 16GB on-board ROM, 13 mega-pixel rear and 5 mega-pixel front cameras.

Another place where Huawei might lose a few fans is the Emotion 2.0 UI which with its cartoon-like theme doesn’t really impress. Here’s to hoping that it also come with a theme engine which lets users get rid of the theme within no time!

    Besides the SOC and camera, this phablet has comparable specs as Samsung’s flagship the Note II which is of 2012. Problem is that Huawei has a habbit asking the same price as the current price for high end models from last year.

    It better be cheap…you don’t cut corners like that and charge a premium

      Then again, there are people like me who prefer a lower resolution (after having made the mistake in the past of getting a too high resolution for the phone) as long as it’s high enough to be sharp. 720p does the job for me on most normal sized phones.
