Rumors: Huawei readies a Quad HD smartphone, Ascend D3 might be launched in June
Last month, Vivo Xplay 3S became the world’s first Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) smartphone to be available for purchase. Oppo is also getting ready to announce its own Quad HD smartphone (the Find 7) on March 17, and it looks like another Chinese company, namely Huawei, has plans to introduce a handset with such a high-resolution display, too.

According to Huawei News, which reportedly got the info from a “reliable source”, Huawei’s first Quad HD smartphone may be released in September. The handset should feature a 5-inch screen and a “true octa-core” 2.0GHz HiSilicon K3V3 processor (this hasn’t been announced yet). The smartphone might be included in Huawei’s Ascend D series, costing around $633.

Before releasing this alleged Quad HD smartphone, Huawei should launch the rumored Ascend D3, which will come to replace last year’s Ascend D2 (pictured above). It’s said that the D3 features a 1080p display, and an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 920 processor that seemingly includes four 1.8GHz cores, and four 1.5GHz cores.

The Ascend D3 could be released in June in China, costing around $469. It will likely be available in other markets after that.

Huawei did not confirm any of the details above, so for now we'll consider them mere rumors.

These companies will be responsible for the death of some currently well known companies.

once upon a time I thought that about Samsung and LG - but times change. Maybe one of these companies will become the new sales champ

Hisilicon chips are too weak

This phone will have many problems. QHD and the Octacore SoC will drain more battery than 1080p/Quad core SoCs. It think it will also be a laggy phone because the chip is not that powerful to run on 2k display.
