Huawei Ideos X5 and Ideos X6 announced

Huawei Ideos X5 X6

With Huawei’s Ideos hitting retailers just a short while ago the manufacturer has announced two new Android devices in the Ideos range, the X5 and X6.

The Huawei Ideos X6 comes with a 4.1-inch capacitive LCD touchscreen of WVGA resolution. The smartphone is powered by a 1 GHz CPU and packs excellent all round connectivity. Wi-Fi b/g/n, GPS and 3G with HSPA up to 14.4Mbps are all supported and there’s also an HDMI port on board.

The 5 megapixel snapper of the Huawei Ideos X6 is capable of recording HD videos. The list of highlights is completed by Dolby mobile surround sound (and we know how good this is from the HTC WP7 devices).

The other new announcement, Huawei Ideos X5 is slightly more compact, coming with a 3.8 display. It also offers HSPA-supporting radios as well as Wi-Fi b/g/n and A-GPS. The Ideos X5 5 megapixel camera is accompanied by a LED flash.

Prices for both these new devices is not available yet but based on previous Huawei handsets I would imagine they will be extreamly good value for money.
