CES 2013 - Huawei Unveils Its New Flagship Ascend D2

For better or worse, five inches seems to be the new target for flagship Android devices. Huawei is bringing it's a game to CES (unlike most manufacturers, which are holding back for Mobile World Congress) with the Ascend D2, a new Jelly Bean 4.1 device sporting a 5-inch 1080p LCD panel and the in-house K3V2 1.5 GHz quad-core CPU. Other highlights include a 13MP camera (narrowly beating out Alcatel's One Touch Idol Ultra) and respectable 9.9mm waist. Stylistically, it looks a lot like a beefed-up Galaxy S II, minus the physical navigation buttons.

Perhaps most importantly for power users, the Ascend D2 comes packed with a massive 3,000mAh battery, sliding in just below the Galaxy Note II in total capacity. Huawei claims that its ADRX (Automated Discontinuous Reception) battery technology will allow the D2 to charge in 30% less time and last six days on standby. Other notable specs include Gorilla Glass, an aluminum back cover, and white and blue color options. Android 4.1 looks like it's mostly undamaged, though Huawei couldn't resist putting a few custom icons in there.
Expect the Ascend D2 to launch in China later this month, with a Japanese rollout (and hopefully a worldwide launch) following. A smaller model, currently unseen and unnamed, will be available with a 4.7" screen option. Pricing information is not available at present.
