Huawei Ascend D quad

Huawei has released details for its D-series lineup for the 2012 MWC which include the world’s fastest smartphones Huawei Ascend D quad and Huawei Ascend D quad XL, and a mid-range Huawei Ascend D1; all powered by Huawei’s own ARM-based chipsets, called K3V2.

Let’s begin with the Huawei Ascend D quad which measures 8.9mm thin, this compact handset carries four cores clocked at 1.2GHz – for sure speed limit won’t be an issue with this smartphone. It sports a 4.5 inches IPS+ LCD capacitive touchscreen in 720×1280 pixels resolution complemented by the industry’s most powerful 32-bit true color graphic processor. It also houses a rear-facing 8 MP camera with 3264×2448 pixels resolution (dual-LED flash) which allows for video recording and playback for 1080p@30fps and a 1.3 MP front-facing camera. While the sound is taken care of by Dolby 5.1 surround and Audience earSmart voice technology. According to Huawei, users can expect up to 30% more battery life than the average phone on its segment with its 1800mAh battery and with the help of the power optimizations done to its hardware and software.

While the new Huawei Ascend D quad XL offers the same specs as with Ascend D quad except that it is a little thicker (10.9 mm) and offers 2500 mAh extra-large battery which Huawei claims will provide three days of normal usage.

Last in the list is the Huawei Ascend D1 which features the same specs as of its brothers except that it only has two cores at clocked at 1.5GHz and a more modest 1670mAh battery. The Ascend D1 will be available as soon as April in China, Australia, Europe, Asia-Pacific, North and South America, and the Middle East, while the two quad-cores will come later in second quarter.

  1. I wonder if Huawei Ascend D series really has a BAROMETER? I viewed many phones sites but this is the only one mentioning the barometer sensor on Huawei.
