Huawei has announced the Ascend D quad, described as “the world’s fastest smartphone”. It’s powered by the company’s own quad-core processor, which apparently reaches 1.5GHz, runs on the Android 4.0 operating system and is equipped with Huawei’s proprietary power management system, providing up to 30% power saving compared to other devices. The 1800mAh battery is claimed to last for up to two days under normal usage.
Inside the 8.99mm slim casing is a 4.5-inch 720p HD display, an 8-megapixel camera, Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound and Audience earSmart noise-reduction technology.
Richard Yu, Chairman of Huawei Device, said “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. 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.”
Huawei also introduced the Ascend D quad XL and the Ascend D1 smartphones. The Ascend D quad series will be available from Q2 2012.
