Who do you reckon Samsung’s biggest threat at the Android crown is nowadays? HTC? Sony? LG? How about Huawei? As exotic as that last name may have sounded, say, a year ago, it’s no longer so esoteric in U.S. tech circles. And it’s likewise not completely inconceivable anymore that Huawei has a chance to take over the entire smartphone world.
And if the recently unveiled Ascend D2 and Ascend Mate weren’t enough to convince you of Huawei’s imminent world domination plans, there appears to be yet another flagship phone in the works. This one doesn’t have a name yet, but, according to rumors from sources “in the know,” we may see it spotlighted with a big announcement as soon as next month.
Projected to compete head-to-head with Samsung’s Galaxy S4, the big guy will allegedly sport a 4.9-inch Full HD panel. Other “known” features include a home-brewed 1.8 GHz quad-core K3V3 CPU (Cortex A15-based), 2 GB of RAM, a 13 MP rear-facing camera and a 2,600 mAh battery.
The “ticker” sounds like the least exciting spec of all, but there’s a reason Huawei won’t afford to up the battery capacity ante too much – the company’s next crown jewel should be just 6.3 mm thin (!!!). Now the question is will this handheld really prove to be a GS4 competitor or will it just end up cannibalize Ascend D2 sales? What do you guys think?
