When you think of Huawei, you probably think of budget-friendly, entry-level Android phones. The company is doing everything it can to transform itself into a company that produces high-end smartphones, such as Motorola, Samsung, and HTC. They’ve already proven that they’re serious about this transformation with the Huawei Ascend P1 and Huawei Ascend P1 S, two great phones that we got a chance to play around with during CES 2012 (hands on with the Ascend P1 and P1 S).
Huawei is going to be taking it one step further at Mobile World Congress this February. After all, back in December, the company announced that we would be seeing a high-performing smartphone in February. The company sent out invites to a press event they will be holding on February 26. While invites don’t say much about what is going to be announced, Blog of Mobile, a Japanese blog, is reporting that Huawei will be announcing the Huawei Ascend D1 Q and the Mediapad 10, the successor to their 7-inch MediaPad that is currently available on AT&T. Blog of Mobile was able to determine the devices to be announced because Huawei Chairman Yu Chengdong unveiled revealed the devices on his Webo profile.
The D in the Huawei Ascend D1 Q’s name stands for Diamond, which is the series that the phone will belong to. Although this isn’t 100% confirmed, the Q most likely stands for quad-core. So, we could be seeing a quad-core phone announced by Huawei this February at MWC. A quad-core announcement definitely makes sense. After all, this is going to be their fastest smartphone ever.
