The more pocket-friendly cousin of Huawei’s 6.1-inch Ascend Mate, the Ascend D2 is the company’s first smartphone with a 1080p display. At Huawei’s CES event this afternoon, we got a little hands-on time with the phone.

The D2’s five-inch screen gives its display a very respectable 443ppi density. It runs a quad-core SoC, and while it doesn’t have the Ascend Mate’s huge 4050mAh battery, its 3000mAh component is still pretty hefty by smartphone standards.

As we told you during Huawei’s press event, the D2 is dust and water-resistant, and based on its ability to survive an on-stage fall, pretty impact-resistant, as well. The phone features a high-res thirteen-megapixel main camera with HDR support, and offers some enhancements for better fidelity voice operation – an oft-overlooked aspect of smartphone design.
