Press images of the Huawei Ascend D quad out, available in black and white (updated with video)
Not only is the Huawei Ascend D quad a powerhouse (well, let's bench the K3V2 chipset first), but it also a thing of a beauty, and Huawei just posted its press photos of the quad-core monster with the 4.5" HD screen.

The handset indeed seems very compact for a 4.5-incher, the "most compact" for a screen of this size, claims Huawei, and is very thin at 8.9mm. Huawei's Twitter feed from the MWC says that it is inspired by the engine of a sports car, although it doesn't specify which sports car exactly.

There is a patterned back cover for easy grip, the 8MP camera module seems only slightly protruding, and there are red accents on the black chassis, like on HTC's Beats phones, bringing a very polished, yet interesting looks.

What does everyone think, did Huawei nail it with design this time as much as it seems to have nailed it with hardware?

Looks like a great phone but if you look closley at the icons of the UI, it looks like HTC Sense and the design looks like Galaxy S2 as well. This would be an awesome phone to come to the US. Though.
