Huawei lining up another new flagship already?

Huawei lining up another new flagship already?Huawei's been serving up new phones left, right and centre recently, but it can't surely be thinking of replacing its new flagship Ascend D2 just three months after launching it. Can it?

That's crazy talk to us, but IT163.com says it's the lord's own truth, claiming Huawei is racing to get its answer to the Samsung Galaxy S4 out the door as quickly as it can.

It won't be a full-blown replacement for the Ascend D2 – that truly would be crazy – but will instead slot in above it in Huawei's burgeoning Android smartphone stable, with the D2 continuing in place one step down the ladder.

On the spec front, the rumours point to a 4.9in full HD display on a chassis just 6.3mm thick, plus a 1.8GHz K3V3 quad-core A15-based CPU/Mali T604 GPU combo, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP camera and 2,600mAh of battery juice.

That's all we've been given to go on so far, but if those specs are accurate, the as-yet-unnamed handset should be pretty impressive.

Huawei is reportedly aiming for an April announcement, but even if that is true it'll probably be the second half of the year before we see it in the UK – assuming it's destined for these shores in the first place.

Didn't huehuehueawei promise last year to become a major player in european and american markets? I haven't seen a single one of these numerous high-end devices of theirs even for sale over here yet.

Nope. And thanks to US interference I don't expect that to happen, either. I don't wanna know what's going on behind closed doors at the WTO, WB etc... And put a bigger battery in your MiFi, for godssake!
