Is Huawei planning on launching its own quad-core processor at Mobile World Congress?

When you think of Huawei, you probably think of cheap Android phones; phones that your grandma and grandpa are likely to use if they jump on the Android bandwagon. Huawei is trying to transform itself from a low-budget Android OEM to a one that produces high-end devices, such as Motorola, HTC, and Samsung.

The company already showed us what they’re capable of doing with the Ascend P1 and Ascend P1 S phones. Now the latest rumors point to Huawei launching their own quad-core processor to compete with NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 processor. According to the sources, the quad-core processor from Huawei could be two times faster than NVIDIA’s Tegra 3.

If that’s the case, Huawei’s quad-core processor will probably be powering their rumored diamond series Ascend D1 Q phone, which is also rumored for a launch at Mobile World Congress.

Will Huawei really be pulling this off? If they do, it could mean great things for their company and also for us, consumers. Mobile World Congress is not far away; we’ll be finding out more soon!
