CPU Faults Cause Huawei Ascend D Quad Launch Delay Again

The Huawei Ascend D Quad unveiled four months ago during the MWC and dubbed the ‘world’s fastest smartphone’ expected to land on the market anytime now will be delayed a little longer.  Enthusiasts expected it to be available this spring but it seems they will have to wait a little longer. It happens the delay of the release of the Huawei Ascend D Quad is because of a faulty processor.  This is the same problem that caused the first delay of the smartphone in the first time but Huawei only mentions that the delay is because of ‘technical problems’.  According to Huawei’s Consumer Business Group CEO Yu Chengdong, the snappiest CPU on mobile phone yet is yet to properly operate on mobile.  However, Huawei is working hard to overcome these technical problems and mass production of the smartphones with D Quad core processors is most likely to begin in August or September.  This is however dependent on how swift Huawei solves the technical problems with the processor and the lack of further issues over the next few months. When the Ascend was unveiled back in February, the most attractive feature on the smartphone was its 1.5 GHz K3V2 Quad Core processor but the rest of the features and specifications are pretty impressive too.  The phone is supposed to have a 4.5 inch IPS+ LCD capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 1280 x 720, 8GB internal memory, 1GB of RA, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS, an 8MP rear camera and a MicroSD card slot. If the specs are anything to go by, the Huawei Ascend D Quad is a decent high-end smartphone that should hit the shelves before the end of the year.  What we know though is that it may have lost it’s crown as the ‘world’s fastest smartphone’ because of the delay as there are faster smartphones released this year including the HTC One X, LG Optimus 4X HD, Samsung Galaxy SIII and the soon to come HTC One XXL.  What Huawei may bank on to penetrate the market though will not be the specs but pricing; otherwise, it will be a tough battle for the Chinese company to penetrate the market dominated by Samsung.
