Huawei Ascend D Quad is the smartphone spotted at Mobile World Congress last year that has greatly impressed critics and audiences with excellent performances from the four-core processor combined with a particularly thin and attractive design and materials of excellent workmanship. Now it seems that the sales of the much expected smartphone will be delayed once again and expected to be ready for sale in August/September and the reason is the production problems of the quad-core CPU based on its proprietary Cortex A9, created and optimized by the manufacturer.
This statement issued by Chengdong Yu, Huawei's Consumer Business Group CEO.
We encountered some technical problems in the production of quad-core CPU, which consequently caused the delay in production. Huawei is working hard to solve any problem and it seems to start mass production of the device during the month of August.
This translates into actual availability of the smartphone is not the first of September, between the presentation of the new iPhone 5 , the mass arrival of the new generation of devices Windows Phone 8 and the top of the line Android HTC One X, Samsung Galaxy S3 and LG Optimus 4X with already several months ahead of the market.
According to the company to reach the goal to distribute more than 60 million smartphones by 2012 has not yet faded, but the real kingmaker in the success of this device can be ruled solely by the price
In fact the recent press conference, we have seen, it seems that the manufacturer wants to bet almost anything on the Christmas market and is not excluded that Ascend D Quad may not arrive until the fall.
