With all other manufacturers announcing their flagships at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2013, Huawei took this opportunity to show off its largest device till date – the Ascend D2. The Huawei Ascend D2 is a 5 inch device with a 1080p screen. Looks like most of the high-end devices coming out this year are 5 inches in size – The Sony Xperia Z and Xperia ZL being some more notable examples.
The Huawei Ascend D2 runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and is powered with a K3V2 1.5 GHz quad-core CPU. It also comes with a 13 MP primary camera. The style of the device is much similar to the Samsung Galaxy SII if you could ignore the navigation buttons. The phone is pretty slim and has a 9.9 mm waistline.
The phone outsmarts the big Android daddies in terms of battery power. The Ascend D2 will run on a 3,000 mAH battery with ADRX (Automated Discontinuous Reception) battery technology which makes the phone charge in 30% less time. The phone can last on this power up to six days in standby mode – this is what Huawei says at the CES.
The phone comes in two color variants – white and blue with a Gorilla glass display and an aluminium back cover. The design of the phone looks promising though we are not sure about the price yet. There would be further updates on the price once the device launches in some major stores.
