Huawei unveils U550, U121 handsets in Asia

Darren Murph

It's been a tick since we've seen anything notable surface from Huawei (well, the real Huawei, anyway), but the handset manufacturer was back in action at CommunicAsia in Singapore. First up was the ultrathin U550 flip-phone, which purportedly supports HSDPA / UMTS / EDGE / GSM connectivity options, sports touch-sensitive buttons, and of course, provides a beautiful link to the 'net when your laptop can't sense a stray WiFi signal. The candybar-styled U121 device (seen after the jump) aims to be a more music-centric offering, and aside from the metallic design, built-in Bluetooth, and integrated media player, everything else looks fairly standard. No word from Asia on when this duo will storm store shelves, but it's usually not too long after gracing the showroom floor that citizens can snag their own.
