Huawei Ascend D2 Goes Official with 5-inch HD Screen

Chinese mobile phone maker Huawei appears set to challenge some of the largest Android-based smartphones out there, and has just announced the upcoming availability of a new handset that will help it do so, namely the Ascend D2.

The new smartphone was made official this week with a large 5-inch touchscreen display on the front, capable of delivering an HD resolution, which should provide users with a great viewing experience while on the go.

With such a large display, the new smartphone should easily prove a worthy rival for Samsung's highly popular Galaxy Note device, just as UnwiredView notes. LG's Optimus VU would also have reasons to fear it.

Moreover, the new device will be released on the market with a 1.5GHz quad-core processor packed inside, so that users can also benefit from increased performance capabilities.

Furthermore, the new device will become available with a 13-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with support for full HD video recording, complemented by 1.3MP front-facing camera for making video calls.

Huawei's Ascend D2 is powered by a 3,000 mAh battery, which should deliver increased usage time, despite the large screen on the device.

The smartphone will land on shelves with Google's Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system on board, which means that it might also see an upgrade to a newer flavor of the mobile platform.

Although a highly appealing device, the new Ascend D2 was announced only for China at the moment, and is expected to be put up for sale in the beginning of the next year.

It will arrive as the company's next flagship Android smartphone, which suggests that it might be released outside the company's homeland market as well, although no specific info on the matter has been provided as of now. No details on the phone's pricing have been unveiled for the time being, but more should emerge soon, so stay tuned.
