Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, and we're already starting to see leaks. Huawei is at it again and today the first press image has leaked for their upcoming 1080p super-slim smartphone. Their Ascend D2 was shown off at CES, but MWC it'll be all about the new Ascend P2 with its 13 megapixel camera and 1.8 GHz quad-core processor.
Huawei has more than just a few smartphones in the works early on here in 2013. While they only showed off two at CES, it's apparent that they have multiple mid-range and high end smartphone coming soon. We've mentioned a few already this month but today Huawei just announced the Ascend G615. A quad-core mid-range phone with a 4.5-inch HD display and more.
Huawei announced their new flagship smartphone at CES, and it is already set to hit the shelves in parts of China. The companies new Ascend D2 5-inch 1080p smartphone will apparently be going up for sale from China Telecom tomorrow with a dual-SIM option, and can be yours for about $640. Pretty big price to pay.
Huawei has previously only been known for their budget friendly smartphones that were also a bit on the cheap side, but as of late they've been changing their game. Last years Ascend D Quad showed promise, and this years brand new Ascend Mate and Ascend D2 we saw last week at CES are certainly a step in the right direction. One that wasn't mentioned last week, the Huawei G520, has appeared and looks rather nice given the price.
Huawei had a pretty decent CES with the unveiling of the Ascend D2 and the Ascend Mate, however it looks like we are already talking about the next device. In this case, that means the Ascend P2, which at this point has yet to be officially announced. That bit aside though, because as of today we have some rumored specs.
Huawei had a pretty impressive showing this year at CES. We were live at their press conference where they unveiled two new exciting flagship smartphones. The first being a 6.1-inch Ascend Mate phablet, as well as a few others. Today however new details are surfacing that later this year they'll be taking on Samsung and others with some next-gen smartphones.
Huawei unveiled the Ascend D2 smartphone here at CES 2013 and while we went hands-on with the handset yesterday, we are getting a look at the manufacturing process today. The sneak peak of the manufacturing process comes direct from Huawei and has arrived in the form of a short, but sweet YouTube video.
Ascend Mate, we also grabbed a few minutes with the Huawei Ascend D2 smartphone. Though, while this one is a smartphone as compared to the Ascend Mate, with a 5-inch display it still borders on that phablet category. But names aside, the 5-inch display on the Ascend D2 has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and a PPI of 443 -- both nice in every respect.
Huawei press event is currently underway and we managed to steal a few moments with the Ascend Mate before things got underway. The handset, as had been rumored -- is massive. The Ascend Mate does in fact have the 6.1-inch display, however that is not where the massive stops. We could also describe the battery as rather large as it comes in at 4050 mAh.
Huawei isn't doing too good of a job keeping their plans for CES 2013 a secret. We've seen multiple leaks regarding their upcoming smartphone and tablet plans. This year they have an impressive Huawei Ascend Mate 6.1-inch phablet in the works, as well as a 5-inch 1080p full HD Ascend D2 to replace the original. Today both devices have leaked yet again in a series of press materials.
