CES 2013: Huawei Ascend D2 is ‘world’s most powerful smartphone’

CES 2013: Huawei Ascend D2 is ‘world’s most powerful smartphone’I was saying earlier that Chinese manufacturer Huawei is keeping helluvua busy at CES 2013. Blink and you might’ve missed the Huawei Ascend W1 and Huawei Ascend Mate.

Chap number three is the Huawei Ascend D2, successor to the elusive Huawei Ascend D1 Quad.

Yesterday we heard the slightly odd claim that the Huawei Ascend D2 is “The Way To Ultimate Perfection”. Uhm…

More interesting is the bold declaration that the Huawei Ascend D2 is the “world’s most powerful smartphone”.

Huawei Ascend D2 specs include a 5in 1080p display (443 PPI), 1.5GHz K3V2 quad-core processor, 13MP rear camera, Jelly Bean (Android 4.1) and a 3,000mAh juice unit with “fast battery charging technology” (25% faster than the Samsung Galaxy S III, supposedly).

Also interesting is the Huawei Ascend D2’s resistance to water and dust. I’ve long been saying that that will – or at least should – become standard in high-end smartphones.

Here’s where things get slightly strange with the Huawei Ascend D2. For starters, the world’s most powerful smartphone has only been confirmed for China (where it’ll be released this month) and Japan.

Stranger still, there’ll also be a 4.7in version. Huh? What's that all about?

Hopefully we’ll hear more about a UK release for the Huawei Ascend D2 shortly. Failing that, we’ll be sure to interrogate the Huaweians at MWC.
