Only five minutes ago I was screaming: “Where the hell’s the Huawei Ascend D1 Quad?” See, it launched at Mobile World Congress in February, but still ain’t available to purr-chase. Now we have an answer. Of sorts.
The Huawei Ascend D Quad and Quad XL are reportedly set to hit shelves in August. Well, over in China, at least.
Both the Huawei Ascend D Quad and Quad XL will be available in black or white when they hit China. No word on a UK release date just yet. Price, too, remains a mystery.
What are we waiting for? Huawei Ascend D Quad specs include a 4.5in IPS display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, an 8MP rear camera, Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0), and 8GB internal storage with microSD support.
Somewhat confusingly, the Huawei Ascend D Quad XL isn’t a larger-screened Ascend D Quad, and doesn’t pack LTE. Instead, it has a meatier battery (2,600mAh), and hence a chubbier body. We like.
Glancing around at the usual suspects (Expansys, Amazon, Clove), it doesn't look like any UK retailers are willing to commit to a Huawei Ascend D Quad release date just yet. Hopefully we'll have an update soon.
