Huawei announce two new Android phones: the Ideos X5 and X6

Huawei, makers of the super cheap Ideos U8150 (aka T-mobile Comet) Android phone, announced this week two new (and likely cheaper than you’d expect) Android handsets: the Ideos X5 and Ideos X6.

First up, the Ideos X5 comes with a 3.8″ capacitive screen, 5MP camera with LED flash, WiFI b/g/n, GPS/A-GPS, and HSPA/HSUPA.

Playing the roll of big brother, the Ideos X6 packs a beastly 4.1″ screen, 1GHz CPU, 5MP camera with flash and HD video support, WiFi b/g/n, GPS/AGPS, HSPA+ 14.4mbps compatibility, and HDMI out.

Both will run stock Froyo out of the box, but will probably get an upgrade to Gingerbread sometime after release.

Unfortunately, there is as yet no word on release date or pricing, but Huawei have managed to keep their phones surprisingly low-cost, so you should expect to be pleasantly surprised when the pricing info does come out.
