Huawei Ascend D2 to be shown at CES

Huawei’s Senior Vice President Richard Yu has revealed the company plans to introduce their forthcoming Huawei Ascend D2 Android-powered smartphone at CES 2013. Yu refers to the Ascend D2 as a “dream phone,” probably due to the specifications. The new handset will sport a 5-inch 1080p display, a 1.5GHz quad-core cpu, 2GB of RAM, a 13 mega-pixel camera, 2,900 mAh battery and will be loaded with Android 4.1.1 according to details found on the web site for Chinese certification agency TENAA. Yu expresses some concern in his posting on microblogging site Sina Weibo that the Ascend D2 is too costly and will be seen as a niche phone intended for “super” users.

Based on the specifications that have been revealed thus far, is this a phone in which you would be interested?

    Hmmm, this phone looks familiar…like every other phone after the iPhone that copied Apple. Well, I’m just being cynical but it does look like a promising model. I think a 5-inch screen should be priced for more affordability so perhaps the D2 won’t actually try to compete with the Note II. I currently use my Note II for work and watching a lot of TV, and of course, occasional pictures. The larger screen of both of these phones, along with my DISH Sling Adapter that my DISH coworker gave me, allow me to watch TV anytime I want. I just downloaded the DISH Remote Access app on my Note and iPad and now I watch more TV than I ever did when I would try to find time to watch at home.
