Huawei to ship new smartphones to Nigeria

A Chinese mobile phone manufacturer, Huawei, has said that it has a big plan for the Nigerian market in 2013.
The Managing Director, West Africa, Huawei, Mr. Tony Liang, in a statement on Monday, said the company would introduce to the Nigerian market in 2013 new range of Android powered smartphones.
Liang said the Nigerian subsidiary of the company, Huawei Technologies Nigeria, would unveil the Ascend D Quad XL smartphone for Nigerian consumers.

According to him, the smartphone boasts of a powerful quad-core internal processor, which is exceptional for any device in its class with a processing speed of 1.5GHz.

He said, “The smartphone is equipped with a 4.5-inch display with a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution and a pixel density of approximately 326 pixels-per-inch.

“The IPS+ screen is truly a sight to be seen and in some cases beats its Android competition such as the HTC One X and Samsung Galaxy S III. The display is bright and vibrant.”

He added that the phone had 1GB of RAM, a microSD slot, MHL connectivity, DLNA support, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, an 8-megapixel rear shooter and a 2,600 mAh battery.

According to him, the Ascend D Quad XL runs on the latest Android 4 operating system with an additional benefit of long battery life.

Liang said, “The Ascend D Quad XL’s irremovable battery is able to deliver enough juice for a full day’s use under normal circumstances like checking emails, updating status, sending text messages and making the occasional phone call. However, when pushing the device to the limits with high-intensity games and frequent usage, the Ascend D Quad XL was still able to deliver impressive results of more than 10 hours of battery life.”

He said that Huawei would also introduce two powerful Android-based smartphones: Honor and Mediapad 7 Lite devices.
