Huawei made a lot of noise at Mobile World Congress when they released a new quad core phone, a new quad core tablet, and a new quad core chip developed by Huawei. Spec wise, this phone is a beast. Look wise, Huawei nailed it in terms of design. Price wise, this will probably be one of the cheapest quad core devices of 2012. But with Huawei not being a brand that is all that known to consumers, is the Huawei Ascend D Quad worth investing in?
CTIA was in New Orleans last week, and Huawei had the Ascend D Quad on display for all to see and play with. Aaron from Phonedog was there and made a nice (3 min long) hands on video of the device which is reportedly due in Q3 of this year. In case you aren't familiar with this device, here is a quick spec rundown:
- 4.5 inch HD Display
- 8MP camera
- 1.5Ghz Huawei K3V2 Quad-Core Processor (1.2ghz also available)
- 5.1 Dolby surround with Dolby Mobile Plus
- Full HD Video recording
- Huawei skinned Android 4.0
- Expandable memory via microsd
- 8GB internal memory
The phone will be available in both black and white (for once, I actually like the white (pictured) phone better than the black), but no word yet on whether it will see a US release. If you're debating on buying the device, have a look at this short but informative video below to see whether it could be something for you (Youtube link here).
What do you guys think? I love the look of the phone, but I personally hate the skin. There was also a lot of lag on the when swiping, but I'm guessing this isn't the final software for it. Could this be on your watchlist for 2012?
