Huawei announces Ascend D Quad and Quad XL
Huawei also has their own set of Android smartphones that feature quad-core chipsets, namely the Huawei Ascend D Quad and the Ascend D Quad XL — both running on a totally new Huawei K3V2 quad-core processor.
Unlike Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 processor or NVidia’s Tegra 3 processor, Huawei customized their own chips based on ARM’s Cortex A9 architecture.
Of the two, the Huawei Ascend D Quad XL is the faster and more powerful one.
Huawei Ascend D Quad XL specs:
4.5″ IPS+ LCD display @ 720×1280 pixels @ 326ppi
Huawei K3V2 1.5 GHz quad-core
8GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD card
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 3.0 HS
8MP autofocus camera w/ dual LED flash
1080p video recording
1.3MP front-facing camera @ 720p
GPS w/ aGPS support
Dolby Mobile 3.0 Plus
2500mAh Li-Ion battery
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
With the biggest capacity battery, the Ascend D Quad XL is only 10.9mm thin but the slimmer Ascend D Quad is pretty thin at 8.9mm (uses the slower 1.2GHz quad-core processor and just 1800mAh battery).
If Huawei could just push this product locally and sell it between Php20k to Php25k, then there might just be a market for it. Unfortunately, their track record for releasing their products in the Philippines isn’t that polished so I have doubts if they will ever release this locally.
