Huawei has been making waves at CES 2013 as a result of its Ascend Mate handset, which packs a 6.1 inch HD screen and gives the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 a run for its money.
However, this manufacturer has also pulled back the curtain on the Ascend D2, which is a handset that it claims is the most powerful of its kind on the planet.
This comes from the fact that it sports a quad core 1.5GHz chip that Huawei has actually designed itself, although it is not the highest clock speed ever seen on a portable device.
The Ascend D2 sports a five inch, full HD display, that will offer a much higher pixel density than the Ascend Mate. This will allow it to do battle with the Samsung Galaxy S4 and a wealth of other high end smartphones.
Android 4.1 is preinstalled and there is an excellent 3000mAh battery onboard, to help give the phone better longevity than the alternatives.
There is even a 13 megapixel camera on the rear, so it ticks all the boxes and, at the right price point, could be a real thorn in the side of Huawei’s better established competitors.
