It’s probably fair to say that excitement over the Huawei Ascend D1 Q has waned quite significantly in the six months since the smartphone was originally unveiled.
We’ve had delay after delay, and now we’re hearing that the Huawei Ascend D1 Q will finally land on September 12. In China. Whatev’s.
The Huawei Ascend D1 Q debuted at Mobile World Congress in February, wowing attendees with a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, and claiming to be the “world’s fastest smartphone”.
The Chinese manufacturer initially told us to expect the Huawei Ascend D1 Q in April, so it’s only – what? – four or five months late. Sigh.
To be fair, September ties in with a statement from Huawei made back in June, when consumer business group CEO, Yu Chengdong, admitted they’d encountered unspecified “technical problems”.
At that time, Chengdong hinted at mass production in August, implying a September release date.
Our Chinese friends will be able to pick up the Huawei Ascend D1 Q for 2699 Chinese Yuan, which translates to roughly £270 in our money. Heck, apply that conversion rate and we’ll happily forgive the delay.
