Huawei Ascend D1 is now available for purchase on Flipkart for Rs. 10,999. This new release from Chinese Smartphone manufacturer will come equipped with dual core processor and will provide good value for money compared to other tier one manufacturers.
The Huawei Ascend D1 flaunts a 4.5 inch IPS LCD display with 1280 x 720 pixel HD resolution, thus providing pixel density of 326 ppi which implies a sharp display.
The global variant of Ascend D1 is powered by 1.5 GHz TI OMAP 4460 Dual core chipset with PowerVR SGX 540 GPU. The ecommerce website Flipkart states 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960-1 Dual core Chipset in the smartphone but this is most likely false.
The RAM capacity is 1 GB and the internal storage is 8 GB which is admirable at this price range. The storage can be further expanded to 32 GB. The operating system is Android 4.0 ICS which is quite primitive and enjoys 17 percent share among Android devices.
The primary camera has an 8 MP sensor supported by Dual LED flash and is capable of Full HD video recording. The front 1.3 MP shooter is also capable of 720p HD video recording.
The 1800 mAh battery will provide you with 10 hours of talk time on 3G and up to 400 hours of standby time which is pretty decent. The Ascend D1 weighs 132 grams and is 8.9 mm thick. Connectivity features include 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, USB OTG, MHL and GPS with AGPS and GLONASS.
Huawei Ascend D1 is 2 years old counting from its global launch in early 2012. Huawei has introduced an old cortex A9 based dual core phone with commendable features for a competitive price in India.
