The Huawei Ascend D quad
is the first true high-end product with global significance by Huawei, but as the company aims to build the world’s fastest smartphone, the release date of the Ascend D quad has slipped. Now, the Android handset is expected to go into mass production only in June, while the official release date is set for July
, according to Chinese publication CNMO.
And this means that the Ascend D quad won’t have the headstart and it will probably enter a fierce war with phones like the Samsung Galaxy S III and HTC One X. This means that Huawei would need really top notch performance and design, or something else that would catch user’s attention away from Android front-runners from other companies.
The Ascend D quad sports a 4.5-inch screen with a resolution of 720x1280 pixels and runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It packs a 1.2GHz custom-made quad-core processor, an 8-megapixel camera and HSPA connectivity of 21Mbps on the downlink. The handset was officially unveiled at MWC 2012, and we took our first detailed hands-on look here
