Quad-core Huawei Ascend D1 Q to start shipping in April
The Huawei Ascend D1 Q will be officially unveiled this Sunday, February 26, at MWC 2012, as one of the world’s first quad-core smartphones.
While we still don’t know too much about it, we now know when the Ascend D1 Q is supposed to be launched. According to CNMO (site in Chinese), the new handset will be available starting mid April. Unfortunately, for now there are no specific details about its availability, so we have no idea what markets or carriers are going to get the D1 Q first.
The same Chinese website claims the new Ascend’s quad-core processor is clocked at 1.5GHz, which should make it the world’s fastest smartphone (although that remains to be seen, since we don’t know exactly what HTC and other companies have to show us at MWC).
The Huawei Ascend D1 Q will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. We’ll bring more info after Huawei wraps up its press event at MWC in Barcelona.
