Huawei continues to tease us with its “fastest smartphone yet”


Huawei has a bad reputation for releasing phones only low-end devices. We mostly see them with carriers like Metro, Cricket or Boost Mobile. But the Chinese company in in the middle of transitioning to a high-end products market strategy. They will be competing with the big boys now, and are about to announce the Huawei Ascend D1 Q at Mobile World Congress.

The team may not have the best naming strategy, but we have to say that things don’t look bad for Huawei’s future. We checked out the Huawei Ascend P1 S, which is the thinnest device around, measuring at 6.68mm of thinness. The device looks great, and perform amazingly smooth, even compared to high-end devices from popular brands.

The new Ascend D1 Q will be announced next Sunday, so the company is only giving us quick glimpses at this device. It is not looking bad, though. And the build quality is looking much like that of HTC smartphones (which are known for great build quality). We will have to wait until MWC to see more details, but do expect some improved releases from Huawei, from now on. Check out the images and let us know what you think.

It might be hard for Huawei at first, though, due to its reputation. Do you guys think you would switch to Huawei if they proved to be a good competitor?

  6. Not unless they change their company name

  7. Why are there all these attachments?

  8. Huawei developer support is non-existent, at least in English.

    So almost no aftermarket ROMs. So no Huawei for me unless that improves.

  15. Wow, some xenophobes on here. As long as they make a good quality, high specced phone at a reasonable price, I will be considering it.
