When Huawei announced Ascend D2 earlier at year at CES, another metal styled handset started making whispers on the street. During those days, HTC One also started appearing on the radar with aluminum body.
In between, everyone has forgotten that the folks over at Huawei might be preparing "Edge": a 4.9-inch 1080p Full HD device and measures just 6.3mm thick. Even now the handset is far from being revealed. The alleged spy shots of the handset have finally emerged (via Nowhereelse). The device looks gorgeous, and tempting at first sight. Crafted from aluminum casing, the handset looks simmer than the Alcaltel One Touch Idol Ultra, which is measured at just 6.45mm.
Talking about the specifications, the Huawei EDGE is rumored to have a 4.9-inch 1080p Full HD display, a Quad -Core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13-mega pixel rear camera with LED Flash, 16GB/32GB of internal memory, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean ,and solid battery life (2600mAh Li Ion?). As of now, Huawei hasn't spoken about the mysterious handset. Well, the device will go on sale in the Chinese market.
In case of India, Huawei has been slow, and lethargic, when comes to announcing any high-end devices. Neither Ascend Mate 6.1 nor the Ascend D2 has been announced in the Indian market for far. On the other hand, Samsung is coming up with the official release of the Galaxy S4 in the second week of this month. Even HTC, who has been missing from Indian market scene until now, finally launched HTC One, in the market. GizBot has sent an e-mail questionnaire to Huawei last month, but the company never bothered to reply.
