EE has unveiled the Hawk, a phone that seems built around speed
EE has brought the Hawk phone, a wallet-friendly device at £150 this is Cat 6-enabled, that means it can support 4G+ download speed up to 300mbps. The Hawk has already proven to produce download speeds up to 238mbps at London’s Wembley Stadium at the EE network.
Sharon Meadows, Director of Devices from EE said: “We’ve built the most advanced mobile network in the UK and we want as many people as possible to enjoy the benefits.”
The device is designed to be a budget 4G smartphone and it comes with a 5 inch display that features a HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The EE Hawk is powered by a MediaTek 1.5GHz octa core processor and it comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of included storage. If you need some extra storage there is also a microSD card slot for expansion.
The device is essentially all-glass, save for the camera module and fingerprint scanner on the rear side. It looks nice enough (provided you don’t mind the EE logo) but doesn’t do much to set itself apart from the competition. And while we’re talking about cameras — it’s a 13-megapixel shooter on the back, paired with an 8-megpixel selfie snapper on the front. Given the phone’s price-tag, we expect they’ll fall somewhere in the poor to mediocre range. Finally, there’s a 2,500mAh battery inside, which EE says can last 10 hours on a single charge. Your mileage will vary, of course.
EE are offering their new Hawk smartphone on their range of monthly contracts and also on PAYG. the device will cost £149.99 on PAYG with a £10 top up. If you want it on one of their monthly contracts its will be available for £14.99 a month. The handset started on sale the 1st of December.
