Powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the Huawei A199 also features Huawei's custom Emotion 1.5 UI. On hardware, the handset falls in the mid-to-high end of the spectrum with its quad-core 1.5GHz processor, 2GB RAM, 8GB internal storage, and 8.0-megapixel rear camera.
Whereas most 5-inch smartphones tend to offer a 1080p HD display, the Huawei A199 comes with a still respectable 720p resolution screen. Additional hardware includes a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, a 2,150mAh battery, dual-SIM support (GSM / CDMA / EV-DO), and the standard fare of connectivities.
Don't look for the Huawei A199 to come to the United States any time soon as dual-SIM, unlocked phones are not the norm. With that said, Huawei is expected to announce a flagship experience later this summer; recent rumors suggest that the Huawei Edge could be said device.
