Huawei reveals quad-core Ascend D Quad and D Quad XL

After months of teasing, Huawei's finally pulled the wraps off of its new high-end flagship, the Ascend D Quad. The company intends to play with the big boys by cramming a quad-core processor and a 4.5-inch 720p screen into a svelte 8.9mm Android smartphone - with Ice Cream Sandwich on the side. But what's most interesting isn't necessarily the phone itself: inside you'll find Huawei's own Arm-based quad-core processor, the K3V2. According to Huawei, this new design is both faster and more efficient than Nvidia's Tegra 3, which we were expecting to see - we'll wait until some real-world benchmarks to draw our own conclusions.
