Meet the Huawei Ascend D Quad XL

Huawei is getting into the quad-core segment with a bang! They just announced this morning that the Huawei Ascend D Quad XL will be available in the Philippines later this week with a retail price of Php18,990. Other than the fast processor, the device supposedly boasts of superior battery life due to the 2600mAh battery pack and auto power consumption adjustment. The phone also sports a pretty stunning display: 4.5-inch with HD 1280x 720 resolution. My only gripe probably about the phone is that it still runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Hopefully we’ll see the Jelly Bean update come out soon. Check out the full spec rundown below!
