Huawei to launch two ”Diamond” smartphones, even better than the Ascend P1 S

Android Phones, Huawei, Rumors


If you had asked 100 US technology enthusiasts about Huawei last year, chances were that around 90 of them had no clue about what you were talking about. The Chinese technology manufacturer kept its efforts at a national level and only released a few entry to mid-level devices in the US and Europe until…

Until the 2012 CES in Las Vegas, where the Ascend P1 S came pretty much out of nowhere, with an unbelievably slim body, a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor and Android 4.0 out of the box. And while we were pretty impressed by the 4.3-incher and we can’t wait for it to be released, it seems that the guys at Huawei are preparing a couple of even more powerful smartphones.

According to Huawei Device chairman Richard Yu, the Diamond series will be introduced at the MWC (Mobile World Congress) in Barcelona between February 27 and March 1 and could be thrown into the European market as soon as the end of March.

US technology enthusiasts will be able to buy the Diamond smartphones around mid-2012, according once again to official statements, but unfortunately other than that we know nothing at this point.

We have no idea what these smartphones will cost and we don’t know exactly how powerful will these be, but Richard Yu stated that they will ‘’take performance a step higher’’. That can mean only one thing, if you ask me, and that is Huawei is preparing its own line of quad-core smartphones.

Sure, this is just speculation, but I would personally expect nothing less than a gadget with at least 2 GB of RAM and of course Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box. What do you think, would you be interested in such a smartphone, even though it would be released by Huawei, which remains an unknown company in the US?
