After announcing the Ascend D Quad in February at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, it seems Huawei won’t begin mass producing the impressive device until June, with a release scheduled for July. Huawei is certainly taking their time bringing the Ascend D Quad to market, considering its rivals, Samsung and HTC, will already have their flagship quad-core smartphones, the Galaxy S III and One X, respectively, in retail stores by then. But hey, at least Huawei will release the dual-core Ascend D1 next month, right?
The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich-powered Ascend D Quad features Huawei’s K3V2 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 4.5-inch 1280×720 HD display with 330 pixel density, an 8 megapixel backside illuminated rear camera with 1080p video capture, Dolby surround audio, and an 1800mAh battery with 30% power saving technology – all in a super slim 8.9mm thin package. The Ascend D quad XL is also in the works and offers a larger 2500mAh battery and 10.9mm thick shell on top of the aforementioned specs.
