The Huawei Ascend D2 is gearing up for its CES 2013 debut in a few weeks but before we could even get our hands on it, the company’s flagship device seems to have popped up in a handful of leaked pics. Announced back in October, the Huawei Ascend D2 is the successor to the Ascend D1 and features a slew of top of the line specs. Notably a 5-inch 1080p display, quad-core 1.5GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, 13MP camera, and Jelly Bean. All of this running off a beefy 3,000mAh battery. Intrigued? So was I…. until I saw what it looked like.
A mishmash of bits and pieces from from some of the most popular smartphones in the world, Huawei’s Ascend D2 might take home the Ms. Congeniality award. Your eyes will no doubt notice a metal band along the edges of the device complete with billet drilled speaker on the bottom. iPhone, anyone? The plasticy white front mirrors that of an LG or Samsung device, and on the back there’s big camera nipple similar to the one found on the HTC One X (although HTC’s nudity is more classy). It’s all of these design choices that give the Huawei Ascend D2 our unofficial title of “iPhone Galaxy X.”
We’ll reserve judgment until we can get the final product in our hands. With CES 2013 just a few more weeks away, it wont be too much longer. What do you guys think of the design? Perhaps we’re being a bit too “iPhone sensitive?”
