Huawei Ascend D2 – A 5-inch Android with a Quad-Core CPU

Michael Maier

With the Ascend D2, Huawei is going after their direct competitor: Samsung's Galaxy Note. Even though this "phablet" does not have a stylus and the associated features of Samsung's device, it is still has plenty going for it.

Photos leaked so far don't give much of a sense of what this device will look like, but the specs tell a whole 'nother story. In the specs-race, this is a very competitive device:

  • 5-inch display with HD resolution (pixel density currently unknown)
  • 1.5 GHz quad-core processor
  • 13-megapixel camera
  • 1.3-megapixel front camera
  • 3000-mAh battery
  • Android 4.1

The Huawei Ascend D2 will initially go on sale exclusively in China, and we don't really know when it will be coming stateside. What we do know is that the device looks very promising.

    This is a sick phone, or should I say, “phablet?” I am so glad that the phone and tablet are merging into something more practical and portable. The mini-tablet is more popular than ever and people are getting used to carrying things in their pocket rather than in bags/hands. I’ll see this bad boy at CES soon. I use my Note II for work and watching a lot of TV. The larger screen of both of these phones, along with my DISH Sling Adapter that my DISH coworker gave me, allow me to watch TV anytime I want. I just downloaded the DISH Remote Access app on my Note and iPad and now I watch more TV than I ever did when I would try to find time to watch at home.

    Huawei has had several Android Smart Phones successfully sold via Boost Mobile Stateside .... what a score that would be for Boost Mobile (or Virgin Mobile) to offer the Huawei Ascend D2
