The Huawei Ascend D2 Will Be Huawei’s Flagship Phone

Huawei has dubbed their Ascend D2 as their flagship phone of 2013. The device features a beautiful HD display with an advanced 13MP camera and an extremely long battery life.

Here are the specs for the Huawei Ascend D2:

  • 5-inch 1080p FHD IPS+ 441ppi Super Retina LCD display
  • 1.5GHz HiSilicon K3V3 quad-core processor
  • 13MP BSI shooter with f/2.2 aperture, 5P lens, and hybrid IR filter
  • Dual-WiFi receivers for up to 150Mbps transfer rates
  • Dual-microphones so you can have crystal clear conversation even from 1.5 meters away
  • 3,000 mAh battery promising up to 48 hours of battery life with moderate use
  • Fast Charging which allows you to charge your device up to 25% faster than the competition
  • Water/dust resistant

Richard Yu, Huawei’s Chairman of Devices, demonstrated just how durable Huawei’s flagship phone is. He poured water all over it and it worked fine, and he even threw it onto the stage and it still worked fine.

The Ascend D2 is made with an aluminum frame and is only 9.9mm thin. It weights a total of 170g. There will also be two colors available at launch: pure white and cyrstal blue (Samsung-esque… why do these companies have a thing against black?).

It also features Huawei’s Emotion UI which claims to fix over 200 of Android’s problems. It’s a user-friendly UI hoping to make Android less complicated. It has over 100 themes and the gallery app features face recognition and smart share. We will have more info regarding the specs of this device later this week.

The device will be sold in China later this month, but will be available for purchase online globally in March. What do you think of  Huawei’s flagship phone? It won’t be able to compete with the likes of Samsung or HTC, but it’s still a pretty great smartphone. Maybe Huawei should have considered making their Ascend Mate their flagship phone.
