Huawei unveiled the Ascend D quad, which they claim is the fastest smartphone in the world. As the Chinese manufacturer pulled the wraps off what it calls the world’s fastest smartphone, the Ascend D Quad, it also unveiled this striking statue outside the MWC venue in Spain.
Crafted by London’s Machine Shop, it features a Pegasus made up of 3500 phones. It took over 720 mans hours to construct, it’s 5.7 meters tall, and has a wing span of 4.8 meters made from 600 meters of iron rod.
Huawei Ascend D quad is powered by Huawei’s own ARM-based chipsets, called K3V2 with four cores humming along at 1.5GHz and a 4.5″ HD LCD display with 720×1280 pixels of resolution and the industry’s most powerful 32-bit true color graphic processor.
Not just that, the device seems to be the most compact 4.5-incher with 8.9mm slimness and Huawei has also addressed the complaints about its camera sensors, including an 8MP BSI along with the 1.3MP front-facer.
It has a 1800 mAh battery (although there’s a variant called the D quad XL with a 2500 mAh battery too) and additionally it comes with Dolby Surround sound along with an Android 4.0 OS.
Huawei says that the Ascend D quad should be available in markets worldwide from Q2 2012, although no guidance was given on price. No verdict on the sales target is known yet but the promotion is one of the best acts mobile industry has seen over the past year.
