Huawei Ascend D3 appears again, bearing an uncanny resemblance to the HTC One max
Back in May, we showed you a photo of an unannounced Huawei handset made with razor thin bezels. Reportedly titled the Huawei Ascend D3, the phone has appeared again, bearing an uncanny resemblance to the HTC One max. The device allegedly includes a 5 inch screen  with a 1080 x 1920 resolution screen. Under the hood is believed to be a little home-cooking in the octa-core Kirin 920 processor. Unfortunately, this is not a true octa-core silicon, as it employs the big.LITTLE architecture.

With practically no side bezels to note of, the Huawei Ascend D3 is supposedly priced at $469 and was first rumored to hit the Chinese market last month. While the phone was not released in June, some new pictures of it were published on Sunday.

Since the phone did not launch in China last month as expected, the speculation has now shifted to a September release. Check out the pictures of what is alleged to be the Huawei Ascend D3 by clicking on the slideshow below.


Thanks for the tip, Radu!

Its an obvious fake. And Ascend D3 is said to be 6inch device, not 5 inch.

Why do I feel like the guy tasked with designing the phone was chilled out till the night before he was supposed to submit the design, then he Googled good phone designs, photo shopped the HTC logo out and added Huawei and a speaker grill.

Because that third photo is photshop by some weibo users. Only the first photo is authentic, the second is old and some beta type, the last just a photoshop.
