Huawei is making their mark at Mobile World Congress with the announcement of three forbimidable smartphones (due to ship in Q2 of this year), one of which is touted by the company as “the world’s fastest quad-core smartphone”, though it’s possible the company might be biased towards its own products.

First up we have the Ascend D, running on a custom Huawei K3V2 1.5GHz quad-core CPU. It packs a 4.5″ 720p display in a package that is around 9mm thick. Running on Android 4.0, it has the obligatory three button configuration. It has an 8MP camera on the rear and 1.3MP camera in the front, Dolby 5.1 surround sound support, and an 1800 mAh battery.

The Ascend D XL adds a 30% larger battery when compared to the Ascend D, providing up to a day of additional battery life, according to the company.

And finally we have the Ascend D1, a more midrange device that has a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU.
