With NFC being the latest trend in the evolution of the mobile phones, it is no secret that all major manufacturers are spending considerable resources to bring the technology to their latest and greatest high end devices. Huawei also jumped on the NFC wagon but in a rather extraordinary fashion - by implementing the feature in a device which costs the highly affordable €150.
Meet the Huawei Sonic, folks - one of the company's latest Android phones. Aside the NFC functionality, the device offers nothing memorable in terms of specs. This is not a surprise given its low price tag.
The Huawei Sonic runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Its UI has been slightly modified by its manufacturer to include a nice 3D-ish effect when switching between screens. The screen is 3.5" with VGA resolution. There is 256MB of RAM and 512MB of ROM on board. The memory can be expanded through a microSD card. There is a 3.2 megapixel camera with no flash on the back of the device. All this functionality comes in a nicely looking package which weighs only 120 grams. We found a hands-on video of the Huawei Sonic which you can see below:
The Huawei Sonic will hit the market soon as T20 from the Turkish mobile operator Turkcell. There is no information on availability outside of Turkey yet but, knowing Huawei's usual practices, we expect it to follow shortly.
