Huawei Ascend D2

Today, at CES 2013, Huawei announced its new flagship smartphone, the Ascend D2 model, a 5-inch smartphone that fits into the new trend announced for 2013. As you probably know, most of the analysts are predicting that this year’s smartphone market will be dominated by quad-core processors, 5-inch displays and full HD resolutions.

Huawei Ascend D2 supports a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, with a pixel density of 443 ppi. Moreover, the 5-inch display is protected by a Gorilla Glass layer and is dust and water resistant. The officials of the China-based phone maker even poured a big glass of water on the smartphone at the Huwaei booth at CES 2013.

When you get your hands on the Huawei Ascend D2 you will discover that the images are displayed flawlessly on the screen that does a good job even under direct sun light.

The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean-powered flagship smartphone is underpinned by a quad-core 1.5 GHz Huawei K3V2 processor. The smartphone is 9.9 mm thick, incorporates a 3,000 mAh battery and weighs in 170 grams.

The Android experience is combined with the Emotion user interface, which is supposed to make the platform easier to use, in a simple and clean way.

On the back of the Ascend D2’s case there’s a 13 megapixel camera with BSI sensor, probably manufactured by Sony, while the front panel accommodates a camera for video calls.

The smartphone will be available in blue or white liveries and it seems that it will also have a 4.7-inch variant, as well. Unfortunately, the Huawei Ascend D2 price wasn’t unveiled, but it will make the international market debut in March.
