The Ascend Mate phablet took most of the spotlight, literally, with its massive 6.1-inch display, at Huawei’s booth at CES 2013, but the company based out of China also unveiled another flagship Android smartphone worthy of coverage – the Ascend D2. In our demo video above, you’ll learn all about the Ascend D2’s features, including a 5-inch 1080p (440 ppi) Super IPS LCD display, HiSilicon K3V2 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 13 megapixel rear camera and 1.3MP front-facing camera. It’s also powered by Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with Huawei’s Emotion UI. The Ascend D2 is dust proof and water resistant as well. It weighs 170g and measures 9.4mm thick. This one will be released in China in late January with Japan following soon after. No word on other global carriers at this time.
