Huawei Ascend D Quad smartphone
Mobile World Congress 2012 has certainly seen its fair share of smartphones which baffle the mind, and one of the main standouts would be the Huawei Ascend D Quad smartphone. The name itself gives the game away, where it will feature a quad-core processor underneath the hood – and you know for sure it is going to be quite the beast in terms of processing power, assuming developers would actually make the effort to write code which supports all four cores. At least at a lower clock speed, battery life can be conserved, but that is a different story for another day.
Let us see what Huawei has in store for us with the Huawei Ascend D Quad, as Huawei is certainly starting to make waves in terms of its quality for its range of devices. Huawei’s K3V2 quad-core 1.2GHz/1.5GHz processor will power the device, where it is also the compact among all the other 4.5″ smartphones in the market. Despite packing in four cores, the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system that comes with it alongside Huawei’s proprietary power management system ensures you will be able to enjoy up to 30% in energy savings.
On to what would whet most peoples’ appetites – the hardware specifications the Ascend D Quad is touted to be the fastest smartphone in the market at the moment, sporting a 4.5″ 720P high definition touchscreen display, a 32-bit true color graphic processor, Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound audio as well as Audience earSmart voice technology. Want to snap great looking photos? Not a problem, thanks to its 8-megapixel BSI rear-facing camera, a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, as well as the ability to shoot 1080p full HD video-capture and playback capabilities.
The 1,800mAh battery is said to be able to last up to 2 days with normal usage – that is definitely pushing it, since most smartphones will last throughout the entire working day. Perhaps Huawei is on to something here that we do not know about? There is no word on pricing as at press time, but you can expect the Ascend D Quad series to be available in China, Australia, Europe, Asia-Pacific, North and South America, and the Middle East in the second quarter of the year.
