Ascend D quad, Ascend D quad XL and Ascend D1


Huawei is probably one of main surprises at MWC 2012 show as it came up with a couple of new and interesting devices including a new lineup of Ascend D smartphones, the Ascend D quad, Ascend D quad XL and Ascend D1.

The most interesting is the Ascend D quad that features Huawei's own K3V2 quad-core CPU clocked at 1.5GHz and paried up with 1GB of RAM. The smartphone is built around 4.5-inch 1280x720 IPS+ touchscreen with 330ppi and 32-bit true color graphics processor. The rest of the specs include 5.1 surround sound with Dolby Mobile 3.0 Plus, dual microphone tech, 8MP back snapper with autofocus and 1080p video recording and dual LED flash, front 1.3MP 720p capable snapper for video calls, 802.11bgn WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, HSPA+, 8GB of storage space and Android 4.0 ICS OS.

The Ascend D quad and Ascend D quad XL shares all the specs except for the battery as the D quad comes with 1800mAh one while the D quad XL will feature 2500mAh one. The Ascend D quad is 8.9mm thick, 64mm wide, 129mm tall and weighs around 130 grams, which is honestly not so bad. Huawei also announced a couple of proprietary techs including power management one that should provide up to 30 percent longer battery life, bragged about excellent sunlight legibility, high voice quality as well as the special BSI 8MP camera.

The Ascend D1 is pretty much identical to the Ascend D quad but uses the TI OMAP4460 1.5GHz dual-core CPU paired up with the same 4.5-inch 1280x720 IPS+ touchscreen with 330ppi. The only other different specification that we noticed is the smaller 1670mAh battery.

Unfortunately, the precise price or shipping date haven't been announced but Huawei did say that it should ship in Q2 2012 while the price should be 15 to 25 percent lower than Samsung devices.
