When the race for creating the perfect smartphone first began between the different manufacturers adopting the same OS, the main feature most consumers were looking for was the hardware performance of each device. As for the exterior plastic was as common as it gets, with Samsung becoming undisputed king in this regard.
Few years later and most manufacturers have drastically changed their orientation, looking to offer not only very powerful hardware, but also great designs and top notch outer-shell components. Here it seems like only Samsung and the little less known Chinese manufacturers are looking for designs based on the lighter but more fragile plastic than anything else.
Huawei is one of the manufacturers that has paid close attention to each its devices design, offering extremely well built smartphones even for the budget market. In terms of the manufacturer’s flagship device that is apparently going to be announced this year, some pics have surfaced revvealing an all aluminium uni-body shape, along with a rather unusual design. The Huawei EDGE is said to feature a 1080p – 4.9-inches display, in a quad-core hardware configuration and with a 2600 mAh battery, 13-megapixel camera, and 6.3 millimeter thickness. It is also said to feature Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, 2 GB of RAM and storage capacities up to 64 GB.
