Looks like China's Huawei aims to launch big-ticket handsets to solidify its position in its native and international market. Since the beginning of 2014, we have heard so much about Huawei's forthcoming D-series.
The company was expected to launch its new range of high-end phones at this year's MWC tech show. But the company still left some things unsaid.
Now, in a latest development, Huawei has some big plans as far as its future portfolio is concerned. According to the latest report, the makers behind Ascend P6 are said to be working on a 2K display ready phone. The purported device will be launched under Ascend D-series. Not much is known about the phone; however, it is expected to go official sometime in September.
The handset will be announced for Chinese market for 3,888 yuan or Rs. 40,000 approximately. Latest media reports also suggest that the phone would feature a 5-inch display having a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels (587ppi), and a 2 GHz true octa-core HiSilicon K3V3 processor under the hood.
It is not surprising to see a 2K display phone from a manufacturer like Huawei. Another Chinese smartphone maker, Oppo, is gearing up to launch its Find 7: a 5.5-inch phone with 2K display on March 19.
Huawei D3- Release date
In the meantime, Huawei's much-hyped D3 handset is said to be announced in June in China. It is expected to be priced around 2,888 yuan or Rs. 28,000 approximately. As far as its spec sheet are concerned, the phone will feature a 1080p Full HD display, 4G LTE support, and a 1.8 GHz + 1.5Ghz octa-core processor. Apparently, it should run Android 4.4 Kitkat out of the box.
