    Huawei Reveals Custom Quad-core CPU & 3 New Phones at MWC: Ascend D Series

    On Sunday at MWC, Huawei launched their three newest Android phones: The Ascend D Quad, Ascend D Quad XL and Ascend D1. The first two are running Huwaei's own custom quad-core chip, called the K3V2, which they claim is faster yet more energy efficient than the competition from NVIDIA and others. They claim it is the "world's fastest quad-core smartphone." Here's a breakdown of specs from their new flagship devices:
    Huwaei Ascend D Quad & Huawei Ascend D Quad XL -
    • K3V2 quad-core 1.5GHz processor
    • 4.5-inch 720P high definition touchscreen
    • 8-megapixel rear-camera - 1080p full HD video
    • 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera
    • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
    • 1800mAh battery
    • (The Ascend D quad XL has the same specs as the Ascend D Quad above except it comes with a hefty 2,500 mAh battery.)
    The Huawaei Ascend D1 is their mid-range/budget device, and although they didn't share much about it, we do know it comes with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and a 1650mAh battery. Here are some launch details followed by the press release, "The Ascend D quad series will be available in China, Australia, Europe, Asia-Pacific, North and South America, and the Middle East in the second quarter of 2012, with the Ascend D1 to be made available in April."

    Huawei Introduces the World’s Fastest Smartphone: The Ascend D quad

    With Huawei’s proprietary quad-core chip and power management system

    BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 26, 2012 /CNW/ – Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today introduced the world’s fastest quad-core smartphone, the Huawei Ascend D quad. Powered by the Huawei’s K3V2 quad-core 1.2GHz/1.5GHz processor and boasting the most compact design among 4.5-inch smartphones, the Ascend D quad expands the realm of possibilities for consumers with an Android 4.0 operating system and Huawei’s proprietary power management system which provides up to 30% in energy savings.

    “We’ve listened to people’s top demands from smartphones: speed, long-battery life, high quality visual and audio capabilities, and a compact, lightweight handset. The Huawei Ascend D quad exceeds these expectations,” said Richard Yu, Chairman of Huawei Device. “In January at the Consumer Electronics Show at Las Vegas, we achieved a world record for the world’s slimmest smartphone with the Huawei Ascend P1 S. We are proud to once again introduce a world-first at the 2012 Mobile World Congress with the Ascend D quad, the fastest smartphone.”

    The Ascend D quad is an entertainment dynamo with its 4.5-inch 720P high definition touchscreen, and the industry’s most powerful 32-bit true color graphic processor. Its PPI 330 screen providing crystal clear display even under direct sunlight, is complemented by its Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound and Audience earSmart™ voice technology for an experience which excels across the senses. Its 8-megapixel BSI rear-facing camera, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, and 1080p full HD video-capture and playback capabilities enables you to record your special moments in clearer, richer detail.

    The Ascend D quad comes with an 1800mAh battery, which lasts for one to two days with normal usage. The smartphone’s prowess is enhanced by Huawei Device’s proprietary power management technology which provides a longer battery life of up to 30% compared to industry average by adjusting power consumption according to usage needs. It also ensures higher chipset performance and efficiency by maintaining a low chip temperature.

    Measuring 64mm narrow and 8.9mm slim, the Ascend D quad is proof that good things do come in small packages. With an ultra-thin frame, the lightweight and compact smartphone’s 4.5-inch touchscreen seems to vanish into the edge, creating an “infinity” feel and allowing an exceptionally narrow body.

    In addition to innovative hardware design, the Ascend D quad also has outstanding software design. In addition to its Android 4.0 operating system, the Ascend D quad optimizes the user experience, ensuring greater ease of use.

    As part of the Ascend D series, Huawei also introduced the Ascend D quad XL and the Ascend D1 smartphones. The Ascend D quad XL comes with a 2500mAh battery which provides two to three days of normal usage. With the same specifications as the Ascend D quad, the Ascend D quad XL measures 10.9 mm slim. The Ascend D1 runs on a 1.5 GHz dual-core CPU and has a 1670mAh battery.

    The Ascend D quad series will be available in China, Australia, Europe, Asia-Pacific, North and South America, and the Middle East in Q2 2012. The Ascend D1 will be available in the above markets from April 2012.
