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
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.
