CES 2013: Huawei unveils range of big-screen smartphones
Nidhi Singal January 10, 2013Just days after launching the 6.1-inch Ascend Mate, Huawei added to its range of smartphones by unveiling more devices at the CES 2013.
While everyone was talking about the huge display of the Ascend Mate and how it could be a potential competitor to the Samsung Galaxy Note, there were a couple of other interesting devices that we spotted at Huawei's booth.
The Ascend D2 is an Android smartphone competing against the likes of the Samsung Galaxy SIII. The Ascend D2 has a 5-inch capacitive display and is powered by a 1.5 GHz dual core processor. The device runs on Android Jelly Bean. It also has a 13MP camera onboard.
However, the highlight of this smartphone is its dust and water resistant feature. There is a special coating around the phone that prevents water from entering the ports placed at the bottom.
Along with the Android smartphones, Huawei also showcased its first Windows Phone smartphone. Showcased in different colours - white, blue and pink - the Ascrend W1 has a 4-inch display. Operating on Windows Phone 8, it has a 1.2 GHz dual core processor onboard. The 5MP camera onboard captured decent images.
