Unveiled back in September at IFA 2012 trade fair, Huawei Ascend D1 Quad XL is about to make its debut in Canada. The smartphone is expected to go on sale by the end of the year, though we lack details on availability and price tag for the moment.However, MobileSyrup reports the Ascend D1 Quad XL will be available for purchase via WIND Mobile, which is no surprise at all given the long-time partnership between the two companies.
WIND Mobile is Huawei’s foothold in Canada, which is why most of the handsets launched by the Chinese handset maker are only available from WIND.
Hopefully, this won’t be the case with Huawei Ascend D1 Quad XL as the phone is pretty impressive and will certainly cost less than other high-end smartphones in the same category.
The Ascend D1 Quad XL is expected to ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich platform out of the box, but Huawei confirmed a Jelly Bean upgrade will be available for download in the following months.
This smartphone is equipped with a powerful 1.4 GHz quad-core K3V2 processor manufactured by Huawei. No details on the graphics processing unit are available, but we know the device will pack 1GB of RAM.
There will be 8GB of storage inside, but users will be able to further expand it up to 32GB via microSD memory card.
Huawei Ascend D1 Quad XL sports a more than decent 4.5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display that supports HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution and 16 million colors.
It also boasts an impressive 8-megapixel rear camera with dual-LED flash, autofocus and full HD (1080p) video recording, as well as a secondary 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls.
We expect more details on Huawei Ascend D1 Quad XL arrival at WIND Mobile to emerge pretty soon, so stay tuned for more updates on this one.
