New Delhi: Chinese handset maker Huawei has launched a new 5.5-inch Android smartphone, dubbed B199, in China costing 1,999 Chinese yuan (roughly Rs. 20,000).

Though for now it seems to be a China-specific device, much like its predecessor A199, its global availability can't be ruled out.

It is a dual-SIM device powered by a quad-core Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.6GHz, along with an Adreno 305 for graphics and 2GB RAM for better multitasking.
