Huawei has announced the launch of its flagship top-end, Android powered Smartphones and tablets for the Nigerian market in 2013.
The telecomm solution provider with support communications for over 2 billion people in more than 140 countries across the globe was among the top four Android Smartphone vendors in Q2 of 2012.
According to a statement signed by the Managing Director, Hauwei Nigeria, Tony Liang, “Hauwei is launching the Ascend D Quad XL as its flagship smartphone. The device boasts of a powerful quad-core internal processor which is exceptional for any device in its class with a processing speed of 1.5GHz.”
It further stated that “the smartphone is equipped with a 4.5-inch display with a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution and a pixel density of approximately 326 pixels-per-inch, making it match Apple’s favorable Retina display.”
Other facilities pointed out in the statement includes “1GB of RAM, a microSD slot, MHL connectivity, DLNA support, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, an 8-megapixel rear shooter and a 2,600 mAh battery.”
The Managing Director said, “Huawei smartphone is unique because the software, the Ascend D Quad XL runs on the latest Android 4 operating system and additional benefit is that Huawei gives users a choice between a nearly non-skinned version of Android, known as the 2D Home, and a heavily customized and clunky 3D interface. Android is all about choices and freedom, and that is exactly what Huawei has done with its software,”
Another feature which Mr. Liang pointed out was that the new offering stand out from devices in its class is the battery life which he referred to as the longest in the market. “The Ascend D Quad XL’s irremovable battery is able to deliver enough juice for a full day’s use under normal circumstances like checking emails, updating status, sending text messages and making the occasional phone call. However, when pushing the device to the limits with high-intensity games and frequent usage, the Ascend D Quad XL was still able to deliver impressive results of more than 10 hours of battery life.
“Meanwhile, the Ascend D Quad XL is not the only phone in the offing for Huawei. The global brand is also coming out with two powerful Android based smartphones namely; Honor & Mediapad 7 Lite devices. However, Huawei is also introducing mid-range devices like G6153 with a full ‘QWERTY’ keypad and social media capabilities to go with it, for those who may not be able to afford the high-end devices,” he said.
As part of the new ways to deepen its relevance in the market, he added that the company is also introducing low-end devices for the market which would include the G3620, G5520 and the G6006 phones.
