Smartphones with 5-inch screens capable of displaying 1080p video seem to be the sweet spot that several manufacturers are targeting at the moment. Another phone slated for unveiling at CES 2013 is the Huawei Ascend D2. As we recently reported, Huawei’s Senior Vice President Richard Yu believes the device is Huawei’s version of a “dream phone” with the impressive display backed by a quad-core 1.5GHz cpu. More images of the device have surfaced, revealing some additional details.
The initial impression seems to be a bit of a cross between an iPhone design and Samsung materials. We can see the 3.5-mm headphone jack will be on the bottom of the device while the top gets what appears to be an SD card slot and possibly a lock button. Earlier images indicate the power and volume controls will be on the side of the device.
Like the Sony Xperia Z, we hope to get some hands on time with the Huawei Ascend D2 during our coverage of CES 2013.
