Is Huawei Announcing a Quad-Core Smartphone this Month?

February 15, 2012

At CES last month, we already got to see Huawei’s attempts to boost itself out of the low-end smartphone market. With the unveiling of some pretty awesome high-end units Ascend P1 and the Ascend P1 S, Huawei certainly has hit the spot in the US smartphone market. It is with this continuous streak of good luck that Huawei has decided to change its image. So we do expect highly from them now, particularly with the upcoming Mobile World Congress.

A while ago, we heard a rumor that Huawei had plans to release their new series, called Diamond, in Barcelona. Now, our sources are telling us that this series will be offering the ‘smartest, fastest and most high-performing smartphones.’ Moreover, we have learned from a Japanese blog that Huawei will be unveiling two new devices at the MWC, the Ascend D1 Q and MediaPad 10.

Along with this announcement, people are now speculating that the Ascend D1 Q is actually a series of codes; referring to D1 as part of the Diamond series, and Q for quad-core. Considering Huawei’s current partnership with NVIDIA, we can but assume that they will be using the Tegra 3 in their new devices.

If you’re looking forward to quad-core devices, you should stay tuned for the MWC; which will happen on February 26!
