Huawei Ascend Sx is the new high-end smartphone from the Chinese OEM?
According to a published report out of China, Huawei is merging its specs oriented "D" series with its better designed "P" series. This will result in the new "S" series for Huawei, which will merge the high-end capabilities and designing prowess of the two different series to produce new top-shelf models. The first phone coming from this initiative is the Huawei Ascend Sx.

This new model, according to the report, will feature a screen of undisclosed size with a resolution of 1440 x 2560. Huawei's own 64-bit octa-core processor will be under the hood and 3GB of RAM will be on board. The phone will offer 16GB of native storage, a 16MP snapper and a 3050mAh battery. It will be priced at 5000 yuan ($826 USD).

Huawei had a pretty good year last year, closing out 2013 as the number three smartphone producer in the world. It shipped 52 million handsets including the popular Huawei Ascend P6. But the company is looking to manufacturer a clear high end model, and if the above specs are legit, they should be in the mix for high end Android smartphones this year.

Great, bring it on! Excited to see Huawei's beast of a phone, last year's Ascend P6 is beautiful but the specs aren't so awesome. So, I hope this year's flagship from them will wow us.

Exactly. Better specs, and better optimized software with Ascend P6 build quality, wow. P6 was bargain flagship , so hopely they make it more expensive, with Huawei value-for-money ratio they can make insane stuff.

Poor Chinese imitation quality. More specs on paper only looks nice, until you find out how unoptimized everything is.

It's not really racist if you have an reputation for something. Also, use the definition of "racist" in the proper context please.

Huawei's own processor means it's going to be a total failure, should have been an s805.
