Despite the fact that Huawei officially unveiled their first quad-core handset, the Ascend D Quad, back at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas earlier this year, it doesn’t look like the device will be making an appearance on retailer’s shelves soon. According to a new report from Chinese website CNMO, Huawei won’t start mass-producing the handset for a few more months now.
The report suggests that the Ascend D Quad from Huawei will begin mass-production in June of this year, and subsequently won’t see an official launch until July. It’s not the worst news, but for anyone out there hoping to get their hands on the quad-core handset before the middle of the year, if these reports are true it looks like it won’t be happening.
The Ascend D Quad features a quad-core processor that’s clocked at 1.2GHz, with a 4.5-inch IPS HD display. There’s an 8MP rear-facing camera, and a 1.3MP front-facing shooter. It has 8GB of internal storage, and it will come with 1GB of RAM. It will have a microSD card slot, WiFi, GPS, and Dolby Mobile 3.0 Plus sound. It will be launching with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.
