Huawei Ascend D, 4G LTE

Huawei introduced the “world’s fastest quad-core smartphone” at the Mobile World Congress today. Enter the Huawei Ascend D quad…

“We’ve listened to people’s top demands from smartphones: speed, long-battery life, high quality visual and audio capabilities, and a compact, lightweight handset. The Huawei Ascend D quad exceeds these expectations,” said Richard Yu, Chairman of Huawei Device. “In January at the Consumer Electronics Show at Las Vegas, we achieved a world record for the world’s slimmest smartphone with the Huawei Ascend P1 S. We are proud to once again introduce a world-first at the 2012 Mobile World Congress with the Ascend D quad, the fastest smartphone.”

Some specs of the Ascend D:

-Android 4.0 OS
-Quad-core 1.2GHz/1.5GHz processor
-4.5-inch 720P high definition PPI 330 touchscreen
-30% energy savings thanks to Huawei’s proprietary power management system
-industry’s most powerful 32-bit true color graphic processor. Its PPI 330 screen
-Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound and Audience earSmart™ voice technology
-8-megapixel BSI rear-facing camera
-1.3 megapixel front-facing camera
-1080p full HD video-capture and playback capabilities
-1800mAh battery, which lasts for one to two days with normal usage.

Measuring 64mm narrow and 8.9mm slim, the Ascend D quad is proof that good things do come in small packages. With an ultra-thin frame, the lightweight and compact smartphone’s 4.5-inch touchscreen seems to vanish into the edge, creating an “infinity” feel and allowing an exceptionally narrow body.

Tru users take note: The Ascend D quad will be available in China, Australia, Europe, Asia-Pacific, North andSouth America, and the Middle East in Q2 2012.
