Huawei has kicked off this year’s Mobile World Congress with a new device, touted to be the world’s fastest. Dubbed as Ascend D quad, the phone is powered by Hauwei’s K3V2 quad-core 1.2/1.5GHz CPU that promises stellar performance and about 30 percent in energy savings.
Ascend D quad runs the latest Android OS (Ice Cream Sandwich) and is equipped with a 4.5-inch 720p high-definition display, achieving about 330 pixels per inch. The 8.9mm slim form factor also integrates a potent 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with backside illumination (BSI) for better picture quality in low light areas, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, 1080p full HD video capture and playback and 1800mAh battery.
Huawei also announced other variants in the Ascend D series like the Ascend D quad XL and Ascend D1. Ascend D quad XL is similar to Ascend D quad but comes with a larger 2500mAh battery whereas the Ascend D1 features a 1.5GHz processor and 1670mAh battery.
Huawei plans to launch the Ascend D series phones from April.
