Coming off some recent rumors and leaks, Huawei has officially unveiled the A199 smartphone. The Huawei A199 will be arriving as mid-tier device with specs to include a 5-inch 720p display and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The key here is not so much what the specs are, but where we will and will not be seeing the A199 come available.
In short, it looks like Huawei has the A199 heading only to those in China. At the moment the handset has been unveiled on the Chinese language Huawei site though, which is really just another way of saying they may have some other details available when (or if) they offer a press release announcement. But basically, as of now it seems a good amount of users will never be able to grab the Huawei A199 smartphone.
Aside from Jelly Bean and the 5-inch display, the handset is powered by Huawei’s quad-core 1.5GHz K3V2 processor with 2GB of RAM. Other specs include 8GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, 2150 mAh battery, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera and 8 megapixel rear-facing camera.
Adding further evidence to this being a China only release, the Huawei A199 (in its current form) is sporting dual-SIM support. All said and done, while this handset may not be one those outside of China are able to pick up, we are also following another recent Huawei story. This other arrived a short while back and brought talk of a new flagship complete with 4.9-inch 1080p display and 6.3mm thickness.[via TNW]
