Huawei Confirms Ascend D2, W1 Smartphones For CES

Huawei has confirmed that the Chinese mobile manufacturer will reveal two new smartphones during CES in January, 2013.

The company will reveal its first Windows Phone handset, the Ascend W1, which will join the debut of the Android-powered Ascend D2. Huawei's CEO Yu Chengdong confirmed the existence of both handsets on microblogging site Weibo, but expressed doubts pertaining to the latter device.

He's worried about it being overpowered, and subsequently becoming too expensive. The Ascend D2 itself is said to feature a 5-inch, 1080p display. It's also rumored to sport a quad-core 1.5GHz processor, accompanied by a 13-megapixel camera.

Elsewhere, the Ascend W1 is a low-end Windows Phone 8 smartphone. It's said to offer a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 4 GB of storage, 512MB of RAM, as well as a 5-megapixel camera.

Huawei had recently claimed that one of its smartphones set to release during the second half of 2013 will best handsets deriving from market leaders Samsung and Apple, which could be the rumored 6.1-inch Ascend Mate phablet.

    Most people only care about the i-something or Samsung galaxy-something. The spring board from T-mobile, a 7 inch tablet built by Huawei, was the best 7 inch tablet I ever own. It bests Samsung's and other brands offerings in built and hardware quality, at the time.
