As with almost every other smartphone manufacturer, Huawei wants to get a better foothold on the Indian market. According to reports popping up all over the Internet, the China-based company is looking to launch its handset, dubbed the Ascend D2, in India very soon. So far, however, there hasn't been any mention of a solid release date or even a price.
The Huawei Ascend D2 has a 5-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. This gives it quite a dense screen, with pixel density numbered at 443 ppi. The handset will use Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. On the back will be a 13 megapixel shooter with a Backside Illuminated (BSI) sensor. It will have an alluminium body with a metal frame on the sides and will be available in two colours—white and blue. It weighs 170 grams. Under the hood, it runs on Huawei's own K3V2 quad-core processor. Coupled with 2GB of RAM, this will keep the phone running fast and smooth.
Coming soon to India
Keeping it alive will be a massive 3000 mAh battery. Sadly enough, owing to the unibody design, it won't be removable. According to Huawei, the massive battery will have a standby time of six days. The company claims the large figure because of its QPC technology, which reduces power usage by turning off the circuit when the data transmitter isn't being used. It boasts of up to 20 percent reduced power consumption.
The interface will incorporate elements of Xiaomi's MIUI, with the complete absence of an app drawer. Instead, much like iOS, all the apps will be right on the homescreen. It will have 32GB of internal memory, which can't be expanded because of the lack of a microSD card slot. In terms of connectivity, it will have the cookie-cutter options including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 3G and 2G. However, it lacks NFC.
