Huawei unveils 5-inch, full HD Ascend D2 at CES


Aside from its absolutely monstrous Ascend Mate, Chinese company Huawei also unveiled their 5-inch, full HD Ascend D2 smartphone during CES. The Ascend D2 is the Chinese company’s current flagship model, and as expected, it’s loaded to the brim with all the latest components and tech. It sports a 5-inch 5-inch FHD IPS+  Super Retina LCD display that has a pixel density of 443 ppi, and is powered by their own K3V2 1.5 GHz quad-core CPU. As far as imaging goes, the Ascend D2 has a 13-megapixel BSI sensor on the back, and is powered by a gargantuan 3000mAh battery. We’re assuming that the Ascend D2 will ship with Android 4.1 on-board.

Surprisingly enough, the Ascend D2 is also dust and water resistant, as it is certified IPX 5/4. Huawei also claims that their BSI sensor in the Ascend D2 is has a higher ISO sensitivity level than most devices in its category. The device, while not as rail thin as its bigger Ascend Mate brother, has a nice, skinny body coming in at only 9.9mm thin. The Ascend D2 should be hitting Chinese markets this month, and is heading to Japan later in the future. No mention of when it’ll hit the Philippines, sadly, or how much it will be.
