As expected, the Huawei’s Android Jelly Bean-running Ascend D2 Phablet is now all official, packing a 5-inch (1920 x 1080p) FHD IPS+ 443 ppi “Super Retina” edge-to-edge LCD, a 1.5GHz quad-core chip, a 13MP BSI rear shooter, and a 3,000mAh battery that boasts an (alleged) 2-day battery life. Protected by Corning Gorilla glass and an IPX 4/3 shell, it’s apparently both dust and water resistant. At 9.9mm thin and weighs 170g, the Huawei’s Phablet is coupled with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board storage. Though the device announced at CES has a 5-inch display, there’ll also be a 4.7-inch version, according to company.
With the choice of two — pure white and crystal blue — color flavors, the Huawei Ascend D2 will debut in China later this month, followed by Japanese launch at a later date. Stay tuned with us for additional details on price and worldwide availability.
