Huawei announces the Honor, possible launch date revealed?

Huawei have announced their new Android smartphone, the Honor, via their official Facebook page. The Gingerbread 2.3.5 running smartphone hasn’t got an official launch date yet, but we’re wondering if the video below has leaked out some exclusive information. The phone runs on a 1.4GHz processor and has a 1900 mAh battery powering it. It’s 10.9 mm thin and weighs 140g. Also part of the features is a ‘Deal MIC’, which we are assuming are the dual microphones for noise cancellation, along with a compass and a gyroscope. There’s a G-sensor, proximity sensor and light sensor, as well.
