Huawei, one of the most popular mobile phone manufacturers, is all set to enter the phablet market. Huawei has recently announced its first phablet device dubbed as Huawei Ascend D2 at an event held in China. By looking at its high-end specs including an impressive 5-inch touchscreen display with HD resolution, it seems that the new Ascend D2 will definitely become an effective alternative to the already popular Samsung Galaxy Note II device. Even though, Huawei has not declared the exact release date of the phablet, it is highly expected to be launched sometime in 2013 in China. Unfortunately, Huawei did not reveal anything whether the device will be launched in any other markets or not. Plus, there is no word yet on the pricing details of the device.
Under the hood, the device will feature a powerful quad-core 1.5GHz processor and it will come pre-installed with the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system. The display resolution is still unknown, but most likely it would be 1920 x 1080 pixels. Plus, the handset will come equipped with a 13 MP rear facing camera along with a 1.3 MP front facing camera to support video chatting. It will also offer several useful connectivity options including Bluetooth, WI-Fi with Wi-Fi hotspot, EDGE, GPRS, DLNA, 3G, GPS with A-GPS support, microUSB (MHL) v2.0 with USB On-the-go support, 3.5mm jack, and much more. Above all, the device will be powered with a huge 3,000 mAh battery.
