Huawei Claims Ascend D2 "World's Most Powerful Smartphone"


Huawei has announced what it claims to be the world's most powerful smartphone in the form of the 5-inch Ascend D2. Previously confirmed to be making an appearance during CES 2013, the device is the successor to the D1 Quad.

It's powered by a 1.5GHz K3V2 quad core CPU created by Huawei itself, while the operating system will be Google's Android Jelly Bean 4.1. It also sports a 443 PPI display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution.

The Ascend D2, which is both dust and water resistant, will feature intelligent power control, which ensures users can receive up to six days of standby, according to the Chinese smartphone manufacturer.

A 13-megapixel camera is situated on the back with light ability, accompanied by advanced control including the ability to alter the smartphone's color temperature. Powering the screen will be a 3,000 mAh battery, which supposedly charges 25 percent faster than the Samsung Galaxy S3.

Huawei confirmed a January launch for the Ascend D2 in China, with a global release expected to follow soon after.

    And 3 years from now, the iPhone 7/7s will still be running on a dual-core CPU and 1GB of RAM.
