It goes on to feature Dolby 5.1 surround sound and is just 8.9mm thick. The device is powered by an 1800mAh battery which the company says that can last up to two days.
With the D Quad, Huawei has announced the Ascend Quad XL which is all same in terms of specs with that of the Ascend D Quad but the only difference is the 2500mAh battery which is loads of juice for the device.
