Huawei Reveals Quad-Core Smartphone and MediaPad 10 To Be Unveiled At MWC 2012


Huawei, a manufacturer normally known for their budget to low-end Android handsets, is definitely coming out swinging in 2012. At this year’s CES, we’ve already seen, and gotten our hands-on with the Huawei Ascend P1 S. With a speedy dual-core TI 1.5GHz OMAP processor and stock Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, we were more than impressed with the latest handset to acquire the title of ” world’s slimmest smartphone.”

If having the thinnest smartphone on the planet wasn’t enough to get your Android juices flowing (that sounds dirty), I wonder if something with a bit more power could entice you? Perhaps something along the lines of quad-cores?

Well, it appears that’s exactly what Huawei has on the menu for this year’s Mobile World Congress on February 26th. A press invite is being sent out to media and mentions Huawei’s “most powerful smartphone yet.” Further more, a Japanese blog is reporting that the device will be called the Huawei Ascend D Q. If the “S” in the Ascend P1 S stood for “slim,” we could only imagine the “Q” in this title standing for “quad-core.”

Also revealed was Huawei’s upcoming MediaPad 10, a 1o-inch version of their 7-inch MediaPad tablet that recently launched on T-Mobile. If all goes well, we expect to give you guys a full hands on during MWC in a 2 more weeks.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. Dont buy Huawei!! I know, it’s nice feature ICS, Quad core, ….. but brand name is the rock bottom in market!! Hauwei is SUCK!!!! Samsung, HTC, LG, and other are recommend!

  2. Maybe they’ve got a 1.8Ghz OMAP4470 dual-core version with a larger Super AMOLED HD screen at 4.65″ or 5.3″. Depends what Samsung can provide them.

  3. Personally, I’m excited to see another competitor in the market-place. Although Samsung is my favorite OEM, I’m not nearly enough of a fanboy to ignore a similarly spec’d (and hopefully lower priced) offering.

    Also, I like how their phones look. I’ve always preferred simple design and although one could say they’re boring I find them sleek. 

    1. i agree, competition is always a good thing, especially when you start making relevant phones, which this very well could end up being.

  4. Huawei is killing it lately.
