Back in September, Huawei has launched its Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread OS running Honor smartphone. In late 2011, the manufacturer has rolled out an alpha version of the Android ICS OS for the Huawei Honor handset, giving us a good indication of Android ICS update in the near future. Yesterday, in China, Huawei and China Telecom have released a new version of the Honor handset, running the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS on board.

The manufacturer has announced that the Android 4.0 ICS running Huawei Honor White handset will be available to purchase in early February at Chinese markets.
