Upcoming Huawei Ascend D Quad
With the new Diamond series, Huawei has stepped up its expansion in the market. Announced just before the MWC, the Chinese manufacture is showing the public that it simply means business, with handsets that are more powerful than its current flagship, the P1 S. The Ascend D Quad uses the K3V2 quad-core processor, which has two clocks version 1.2 GHz and 1.5 GHz. Designed completely by Huawei, the K3V2 is based on ARM Cortex A9 technology. The processor also features an integrated 32-bit graphic engine that can provide more realistic visuals. The proprietary algorithm allows the phone to maintain a low core temperature, due to lower power consumption.
The K3V2 processor will be used on future Huawei devices, including the MediaPad 10 FHD. Obviously, the 4.5” display HD IPS display is sharp and vivid. The Ascend Diamond Quad trumpets the 330ppi pixel density and it’s a notch higher than the much-praised 326ppi Retina Display used by the iPhone 4S. Although not easily visible, Huawei’s flagship delivers smoother graphics and text.
The display also holds its own quite well against the Samsung’s Super-AMOLED Plus display. The earSmart noise-canceling technology improves the audio quality of the handset. Using a dedicated chip and dual microphones, the earSmart solution can filter background noise, when you make phone call in a noisy area. A noise-cancelling technology is also used by the Samsung Galaxy SII.
The Ascend D Quad also features 5.1-channel surround sound system, which is enhanced by the Dolby Mobile 3.0 Plus. It allows you to hook the smartphone to any surround system. The Huawei Emotion UI was somewhat criticized for its unintuitive design and slow performance, but Huawei is developing a new version of the UI with improved design, ease of use and under-friendliness.
