Chinese manufacturer Huawei had a fairly busy time at Mobile World Congress (MWC) last week, launching the Huawei MediaPad M1 tablet, Ascend G6 4G smartphone, E5786 Mi-Fi, and the TalkBand B1 fitness tracker. Phew.
Things are said to be equally busy behind the scenes, with no less than three Huawei Ascend smartphones in the proverbial pipeline: the inevitable Ascend P6 successor, and two new members of the high-end Ascend D family.
It’s Huawei News detailing the Huawei Ascend D3, Ascend P7, and an unnamed 2K Ascend D handset.
Starting with the Huawei Ascend D3, specs supposedly include a 1080p display, a Kirin 920 processor comprised of two pairs of four cores – only one of which will function at a time, and LTE support. It’s tipped to arrive in June.
Moving onto the 2K Huawei Ascend D, rumoured specs include a 5in 2K display, and a “true octa-core processor”. It’ll join the likes of the Oppo Find 7 and the Vivo Xplay3S in the first wave of 2K smartphones. ETA: September.
Finally there’s the Huawei Ascend P7, tipped to come with a 5in 1080p display, quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 13MP/8MP cameras. It’s the most likely of the trio to see an international release, landing in May or thereabouts.
