The OUYA Competitor
Running on a skinned version of Android Jelly Bean version 4.2.3, the Tron mini-console consists of a cylindrical hub and a Bluetooth controller that looks like it took a couple of design pointers from the Xbox 360's. Despite the movie inspired name, we don’t see anything from the design that looks anything Tron-like. It would have been nice if there were some flashing blue neon lighting on it. Or maybe it wouldn't.
It’s kitted out with some decent specs too. Powered by the Tegra 4 chipset, the Tron has 2GB of RAM and will come in 16 and 32GB configurations. Don’t worry about saving space on it though: you’ll be able to buff up to 64GB via a microSD slot located at the base of the console. There are also the usual suspects like Ethernet support, Bluetooth, USB 3.0 and Wi-Fi. 4K video playback is also going to be possible.
Huawei hasn’t mentioned anything about pricing yet but we wouldn't expect it to top the US$99 price tag of the OUYA. It’s going to be a China-only release in the second quarter of this year, but Huawei did mention that they do have plans for market expansion.
The alleged Sony Xperia Z4 will be one classy smartphone
