Lagos — Huawei, a manufacturer of smartphones, is set to enter Nigeria's market in 2013 with the announcement of the introduction of a new range of Android powered Smartphones.
Mr. Tony Liang, Managing Director, Huawei Technologies Nigeria said Ascend D Quad XL boasts of a powerful quad-core internal processor which is exceptional for any device in its class with a processing speed of 1.5GHz.
He said 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, matching Apple's favorable Retina display, adding that the IPS+ screen is truly a sight to be seen and in some cases beats its Android competition such as the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S III. The display is bright and vibrant.
Other facilities of the phone 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. It doesn't have a cheap feel thanks to the textured back plates, giving it a sleek feel.
"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", he said.
"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".
