Vendor brings its LTE to Europe and Asia

Huawei has used the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona to announce several new LTE smartphones and devices. The Chinese vendor has revealed that it would add LTE supported versions of the Ascend D series and Ascend P1 handsets as well as the E3276 wireless network card and E5776 Wi-Fi hotspot to its product portfolio. Huawei will be introducing the devices to the European and Asian markets by July.

The Ascend D LTE S is the LTE variant of the Ascend D Quad smartphone. Unlike the Quad, which sports a reportedly homegrown 1.5GHz quad-core processor, the LTE model runs a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4.

The E3276 and E5776 networking devices will support the new LTE Cat 4 standard, which offers downstream speeds of up to 150Mbps in the usual FDD format used by LTE, and up to 112Mbps using the TDD spec intended for China but used in some other countries. The E5776 is a common pocket router. [via Phandroid]
