About a week after it was first officially unveiled at CES 2013 in Las Vegas alongside the 6.1-inch Huawei Ascend Mate, the Ascend D2 is now on track to becoming officially available for purchase. This is line with Huawei's promise to release its latest Android-powered flagship smartphone first in China some time during this month.
Huawei‘s flagship Ascend D2 Android smartphone will go on sale online today through Huawei's own web site, according to an official announcement made recently through Sina Weibo. It offers the standard Huawei Ascend D2 specs, which include a 5-inch Full HD screen, a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, a 13-megapixel camera, a 3,000mAh battery, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, as well as dual-SIM support and compatibility with China Telecom's network as a CDMA2000 variant.
If you're pining for the WCDMA version of the Huawei Ascend D2, you'll have to keep on waiting for a little longer. But if you think the China Telecom CDMA variant will do, then get it first tomorrow “while stocks last” at Huawei's asking price of ¥3,990 or about $640. Yes, the latest in handheld technological wizardry does not come cheap.
