Huawei Confirms It Will Announce Flagship Ascend D2 At CES Next Month

Chinese gadget vendor Huawei has confirmed that it will announce a new flagship smartphone called the Ascend D2 at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. The Android-powered handset, which is rumored to feature a 5-inch 1080p display, will make its debut alongside the W1, a second smartphone that will run Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform.

Recent rumors surrounding the Ascend D2 have claimed that the handset will be one of just a handful on the market with a 5-inch 1080p display, allowing it to go head to head with the likes of the HTC Butterfly, J Butterfly, and Droid DNA. It’s also expected to get a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, and a 13-megapixel camera.

These specifications are purely speculation, of course, so they may not be completely spot-on. But it won’t be long before Huawei makes the Ascend D2 official.

In addition to the Ascend D2, Huawei has confirmed it will announce the W1, its first smartphone to be powered by Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating system; and the Ascend Mate, an Android-powered “phablet” that’s expected to feature a whopping 6.1-inch display.
