Huawei Ascend D quad rumored delayed to July

Huawei may move quad-core phone back a month

Huawei's self-proclaimed fastest phone in the world, the Ascend D quad, may have had its released moved back by at least a month if tips are accurate. While unconfirmed, CNMO understood that it would go from expectations of shipping before the end of the spring to only starting production in June. The actual release would "likely" be in July, but the step left room for it to ship later still if timing required it.

The Chinese phone builder hasn't confirmed or denied the setback.

Much of the attention to the Ascend D quad came not from its using a quad-core processor but its claims of a custom-designed chip, the K3. While suspected as a possible version of NVIDIA's Tegra 3, it's expected to outperform even known Tegra 3 devices. A 4.5-inch display and Android 4.0 further put it into the high end of the smartphone field.

When it does ship, Huawei's phone is poised to reach North America as well as the rest of the world.
