updated 07:15 pm EST, Tue March 6, 2012

Midrange smartphone expected in North America

The Bluetooth SIG has cleared Huawei's Vision U8850 handset, suggesting the midrange Android smartphone may be headed to the North American market. The Bluetooth standards group tested a variant that supports HSDPA 850MHz and 1900MHz bands, pointing to compatibility with AT&T's network, though a specific carrier has yet to be confirmed.

The U8850 features an aluminum unibody housing measuring 9.9mm thick, a single-core 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and a 3.7-inch display. Other hardware features include a five-megapixel camera with autofocus and 720p recording capabilities.

The Vision is currently available in several overseas markets with Android 2.3, though it remains unclear if the OS will be updated ahead of a North American launch. Aside from AT&T, other potential suitors include Canadian carriers Bell, Rogers and Telus. [via Unwired View]
