Huawei to Launch Ascend D2 Smartphone With 1080p Display

Specifications for Huawei's Ascend D2 smartphone leaked today revealing that it will feature a 1080p display.

The new handset will come with a 5-inch 1920x1080 Full HD Touchscreen along with a slew of other high-end components such as a quad-core 1.5GHz processor, 13-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front camera, 2GB RAM, and a 3,000 mAh battery.

It will run on Android 4.1, JellyBean and will use a quad-core processor known as the Hass K3V2 which is actually made by Huawei.

Measurements for the device were revealed by GizChina who stated that it will be 9.9mm and weighs 170 grams. This makes the handset larger than the 7.5mm ZTE Nubia Z5. The difference in weight and size could be attributed to the new battery.

The company hopes to release the Ascend D2 in the first few weeks of January. This will allow Huawei to have a strong competitor for the Oppo Find 5 and the Nubia Z5. The internal storage still has not been revealed for the handset and it is not clear if it will have LTE connectivity. That news should be revealed in the coming weeks.

The Oppo Find 5 release date and specs were recently confirmed by the company as the device will launch during first quarter of 2013.

For one, the Oppo Find 5 will come with a full HD 5-inch 1080p screen with a 441 ppi pixel density. Judging from the numbers on the specifications, this handset will have the finest display on the market displaying colors in movies with the highest amount of clarity.

And even with a 5-inch screen, the Oppo Find 5 will still be easy to hold in one hand thanks to its non-existent bezel.

The device also is no slouch in the camera department. It will also be one of the first smartphones to come with a 13-megapixel camera capable of recording video in 1080p@120 FPS for slow motion playback.
