Back in February, Huawei announced the introduction of the Ascend D Quad, a high-end smartphone, scheduled to be available in April 2012. With an impressive list of features, Huawei claimed it would be the fastest smartphone in the world. In March, it was reported production would be delayed until June with July delivery dates. News is now coming out that yet another delay has struck Huawei. Production is now expected to commence in August with delivery probably not occurring until September.
The delay is traced to Huawei’s own production of their quad-core chip. Huawei’s Consumer Business Group CEO Yu Chengdong indicates production of the quad-core chip “has encountered some technical problems which caused the delays in production.”
The Ascend D Quad, if released on schedule, would have been a top tier smartphone. Specs include a Huawei K3V2 1.2GHz quad-core chipset; a 4.5-inch HD Touch-Enabled screen, supporting 720p resolution at 330 PPI; an 8MP BSI rear-facing camera and a 1.3MP front-facing camera; and support for full HD (1080p) video recording. While still a relatively strong contender, with competitors like the Samsung Galaxy S III and HTC One X already available, Huawei may have missed their opportunity to establish a foothold in the high-end smartphone market.
