Some Taiwanese folks had already got their hands on the Huawei Ascend D2, Huawei’s 5 inch full HD behemoth made to challenge the rest of hardcore top-tier phablets such as HTC Droid DNA and OPPO Find 5. It was announced at CES along with the 6.1-inch Huawei Ascend Mate. This device will be spreading across the market in China soon, but no words pricing and U.S. availability. We’re hoping there’ll be more details at MWC next month. Other specs includes its homegrown quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a sharp and fast 13-megapixel camera at the back, a hefty 3,000 mAh battery that is said to provide as much as two-days of battery life, and dual-SIM card slots that support GSM and CDMA network. In this initial look, we’ll look at the build quality, Huawei’s Android 4.1-based custom UI and some other basic stuffs.
