Huawei Ascend D: World’s fastest quad-core smartphone clocks in at 1.5GHz
Apple, HTC, Samsung, and Sony are some of the leading smartphone manufacturers out there, and leave slim or no chance at all for new faces to join the market. However, once in awhile, just like a one-hit-wonder song hits the radio waves, a great phone from outlier manufacturer can make people take notice. Right now, Huawei is such a company.
Huawei is a leading a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider that is aiming to get into the smartphone game. During Mobile World Congress, Huawei introduced the world’s fastest quad-core smart phone, the Huawei Ascend D. The company is also known for producing the world’s slimmest smartphone, the Huawei Ascend P1 S.
The Huawei Ascend D features the company’s own K3V2 CPU, clocked in at 1.5GHz. However, the CPU’s quickness is only the beginning. The phone also has a 4.5-inch 720p display, 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, Dolby 5.1 surround sound, supports 4G LTE, and a long lasting 1,800mAh battery to power you through the day. Huawei boasts that the battery can last up to two days under normal usage, and up to three days on their XL flagship model. The specs on the Huawei Ascend D XL differ minimally from the Ascend D, as it has a larger 2,500mAh battery.
Huawei will also be releasing a D1 series phone, which features slightly less impressive specs, but still packs a punch in its categorical performance.
The Ascend D is set to drops later this year, and the Ascend D1 will be available as early as April.
