Chinese handset maker Huawei officially unveiled the Ascend D quad XL back in February at the Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona. However, the smartphone is expected to hit shelves sometime in August.
The folks over at Engadget
have just learned that the smartphone has recently been approved by FCC (Federal Communication Commission), which points to an imminent launch in North America.
The good news is that the smartphone will be launched with a 12-megapixel rear photo snapper, though Huawei initially confirmed that the Ascend D quad
XL would pack an 8-megapixel main camera.
Other highlights confirmed by the FCC documents include HDMI and MHL ports, along with NFC (Near Field Communication) technology. It has been approved with pentaband HSPA+ support and Wi-Fi.
Although Huawei previously announced that the Ascend D quad XL would hit shelves in August, we expect the smartphone to arrive in North America this fall. Via
