Huawei Ascend D1 visits FCC with some mighty fine specs
One of the phones displayed by Huawei at MWC 2012 in Barcelona back in February, the Huawei Ascend D1 has some pretty good specs to show off. And show off the phone did as it visited the FCC with its 4.5 inch 720p Super IPS+ LCD screen. The Agency had to be impressed with the handset's pixel density of 326ppi which is in Retina display territory. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.5GHz TI OMAP 4460 with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of native storage on board. Certainly the FCC couldn't help but note that the Huawei Ascend D1 has a microSD slot with a capacity of 32GB. On back is a 8MP camera with dual-LED flash. The camera records video at 720p. And let's not forget the 1.3MP front-facing camera that takes self-portraits and allows for video chats. Android 4.0 is installed out of the box.

With quadband GSM and pentaband HSPA+/WCDMA, the unlocked version of the Huawei Ascend D1 will be able to work on both AT&T and T-Mobile. But there has been no word on which U.S. carriers will be getting this device although it would be an excellent high end choice for some of the smaller, regional mobile operators. Regardless of where this model ends up, it is sure to become a favorite amongst those who want great performance at a reasonable price. We should see this unit hit the market sometime this quarter.

won't be the choice of those obsessed with spec sheets* Pretty sure an "enthusiast" would kinda just want the phone they want.

Since they dont have a "premium" name in the states, this could be a pretty darn well powered phone for not a whole lot of cash. If were talking 400 or less full retail, it could be a dark horse favorite.
