Huawei released a teaser video the other day for their MWC 2014 presence. The video indicates a couple new tablets will be revealed along with a new smartphone. Until now, many people seemed to think the possibilities for the smartphone included the Ascend P7 or the Ascend D3.
Earlier today Huawei announced the Ascend Mate and the Ascend D2. The Ascend D2 sports a 5-inch 1080p IPS display with 443ppi, Huawei’s K3V2 1.5 GHz quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, 13MP camera, 3,000mAh battery, microSD, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and the latest version of the Emotion UI. It’s 9.9mm thick and weighs 170g. We expect to see this bad boy on sale in China this month followed by Japan.
Huawei’s D series of devices has received three new additions to it’s family, the Ascend D quad, quad XL and Ascend D1. Each iteration of the Ascend D will come with it’s own differentiations in specifications, appropriate to each tier of model. Details for the Ascend D quad have been released for us to drool upon.
Huawei has opened an online shop for U.S. customers based on one product, the Huawei Ascend Mate2 4G. At present, Huawei is only offering potential buyers the opportunity to sign up for their e-mail list to receive updates. Huawei touts the device’s download speeds of up to 150 Mbps on compatible networks.
Huawei’s Chairman of Devices, Richard Yu, couldn’t wait any longer and whipped out the upcoming Ascend Mate. The highlight of this beast is the 6.1-inch display that might make the Galaxy Note II look rather small. It also sports a 1.8GHz HiSilicon K3V3 quad-core CPU and a 4.000mAh battery. At 9.9mm of thickness and a price of ¥3,000 (about $480), could this push Huawei over the top?
