Huawei Ascend D Quad coming to Europe in October

Huawei Ascend D Quad coming to Europe in October
If there is one thing that smartphone aficionados don't like, that is to be given a glimpse at a super cool, top-of-the-line smartphone and then having to wait for ages before the said device actually hits the market. Sadly, that is what's going on with the Huawei Ascend D Quad, which we first saw over four months ago at MWC. Huawei's first quad-core smartphone will be released in August, reports The Inquirer, but only to customers in China. The smartphone's release on the European market is currently being planned for October of this year.

When the Huawei Ascend D Quad was announced, plans were that the smartphone will be out by the end of 2012's second quarter. Then came the first delay, which moved the device's release date to July, after which problems with the quad-core K3V2 chip caused the launch to be postponed again, this time until August.

For those who need a refresher, the Huawei Ascend D Quad has a custom-made quad-core processor ticking at 1.2GHz, a 4,5-inch 720p display, and an 8-megapixel camera. The battery inside it has a capacity of 1,800mAh, and for those of you who don't find that enough, a model known as the Ascend D Quad XL with a 2,500mAh battery is coming as well. 

All in all, the Huawei Ascend D Quad will be a late arrival to the quad-core party, although it was once touted as the world's most powerful smartphone. It will be facing tough competition, yet who knows, it might not be that bad of a pick after all, as long as it carrier a decent price tag.

That's exactly why I bought Galaxy S III... I was really waiting for this Huawei, because it will be much smaller than S III and almost with the same power, but I can't wait half a year just to buy it... such a shame -.-

Technical specifications and design looks not bad, but I don't know much about Huawei quality.

The Huawei brand just doesn't impress me. The picture there look nice but feel un-original.
