Huawei has officially declared the launching of its latest flagship Android smartphones that are soon to hit the market this August – the Ascend D Quad and D Quad XL. It was mentioned in the Mobile World Congress held at Barcelona last February that the Ascend D Quad is deemed one of the best-spec smartphones.
The latest Huawei Ascend D Quad is integrated with incredible features including its 4.5 inch IPS HD Display, 1.2 GHz quad core Huawei K3v2 processor, 1GB RAM, 8MP BSI rear camera, 8GB of built-in memory, Micro-SD support and will run on Android 4.0 OS. Meanwhile, the D Quad XL will also have the same specs but the difference is on its 2,600 mAh battery size that makes the phone a bit thicker.
The company was supposed to launch these smartphones earlier but it was delayed. Huawei’s own quad-core CPU inside D Quad has encountered some minor technical problems hence the company has no choice but to postpone its release. In order to fulfill the launching of their latest Android flagship devices, Huawei utilizes all means possible in order to resolve these issues. Besides, the company sets aside the notion of massive production. All these are done so that their gadgets can hit the market sooner.
The official launching is set to happen late August or early September of the current year. Huawei however, has not yet tagged specific prices on both its D Quad and D Quad XL. But the company guaranteed that once the launching date is final, updates on prices will likewise be officially disclosed.
Despite the delays on the D Quad and D Quad XL release, Huawei is already setting a goal to sell 60 million smartphones within this year.

Pertinent reports also said that the company is likewise planning to be the first seller to come out with a mid-range Windows phone 8.
Meanwhile, a different Chinese company, Xaomi, is also planning to release its own quad-core Android smartphones later this year. But the launching is purportedly scheduled on October, which means Huawei still has time to sell its D Quad units before the other entrants could hit the market. This would likewise signal a start of competition in the market sales.
Although some people said that if Huawei would sell its D Quad phones on a much lower cost, the company has a better chance of acquiring higher market sales and therefore could establish a healthy competition with other smartphone brands. Others even forecast that Huawei can make it to the top 5 list of smartphone Chinese vendors by the end of 2012.
