Huawei has kicked off the quad-core announcement party by revealing the Huawei Ascend D Quad right here in Barcelona, making it the world's fastest smartphone (so far).
Instead of being powered by Nvidia's Tegra 3 silicon, the K3V2 quad-core chip on the Huawei Ascend D Quad is custom made by the company itself and boasts up to 30% energy savings.
The Huawei Ascend D Quad crams in a 4.5in 720p screen, a quad-core 1.5GHz processor, 5.1 Dolby surround sound and 8MP camera with 1080p video recording into an 8.9mm thin body, while running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
A 1,800mAh battery should keep the Huawei Ascend D Quad chugging along for longer than your average pocket powerhouse, or you can opt for the 10.9mm thin Huawei Ascend D Quad XL which boasts the same specs but packs in a whopping 2,500mAh battery which provides two to three days of usage.
No pricing information has been released as of yet, we'll be sure to keep you updated.
