The eve of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain, on Sunday witnessed the China-based telecoms biggie Huawei's unveiling of its newest offering in the smartphone arena --- the Huawei Ascend D Quad handset.
According to Richard Yu, manager of Huawei's devices division, the new Ascend D Quad will not only boast a notably bigger and sharper screen than the iPhone 4S, but will also have two times the processing power of the Samsung Galaxy Tab and other comparable handsets presently available in the market.
Revealing that the Ascend D Quad's 4.5-inch screen and its 330-pixels-per-inch resolution will be "more than the human eye can process," Yu said that the smartphone will also be "49 percent faster than the fastest smartphone in the world."
In addition, the `quad core' K3V2 processor of the new Ascend D Quad handset - which chiefly underscores Huawei's intentions of moving on from the low-end-handsets' space to the a high-end smartphone maker - will be two times more powerful as the `dual core' processors used in the presently-available handsets.
The 3G version of Ascend D Quad will be launched in Australia, China, Europe, Asia-Pacific, North and South America, and the Middle East in April; and a version supporting the 4G LTE network will be available in the second half of the year.
Noting that Huawei aims at becoming "the best performer in the industry, we want to be the benchmark," Yu said that even though the Huawei phone brand "isn't that famous," its devices should still be "the best ones."
