Claimed Huawei Ascend D3 leaks out, flaunting minimum bezels all around


If you thought that Huawei's highest point for the season is the stylish Ascend P7 that we reviewed not long ago, we'll have to inform you that it will actually be the Ascend D3. Coming to replace last year’s Ascend D2, the D3 is supposed to sport a 1080p display, and the octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 920 processor that includes four 1.8GHz cores, and four 1.5GHz cores. 

What's more intriguing about the handset pictured above, however, is the fact that it features extremely narrow top and bottom bezels, in addition to the almost non-existent side ones. It's not at the level of Sharp's EDGEST design yet, but seems to be getting awfully close, eventually fitting a large display in a very manageable with one hand chassis. The Ascend D3 is expected to be released in China next month, costing around $469, and then be rolled out to other markets. Huawei is also rumored to be working on a Quad HD smartphone of its own, but this one is said to arrive no sooner than September.

First Sony and Apple, now HTC? Seriously Huawei just because you are Chinese company doesn't mean you can just copy...

HTC stole that design from a Chinese company The Oppo Find 3 had that design back in 2012 Also I believe Blackberry used that design before HTC as well, can't remember the name of their phone though Oh well its a good design, I wouldn't mind if more companies stole that design, especially if LG used that design but with small bezels

Bezel-wise is still an achievement. Black area illuminated: [IMG]http://i59.tinypic.com/2h54is5.jpg[/IMG] orhttp://tinypic.com/r/2h54is5/8

Little detail you forgot, HTC uses this design for the dual speakers, every single phone you mentioned (Find 3 and Z10) do not have dual speakers and therefore those things are useless on them.

Most people said that it looks like HTC . But actually it looks more like LG G2 . If you don't believe me , you can compare yourself . It doesn't have front speakers like HTC , and it's bottom is not 100% like like LG . As it have slim bezels it looks like LG . So , it's a Huawei . Their own creation . Every phone looks like one another with small differences .

I believe the CEO of Huawei said in an interview not long ago that "QuadHD displays are stupid"
