Why It’s Noteworthy: Huawei says it’s the “world’s fastest smartphone,” a claim that is sure to be challenged before the Ascend D Quad even launches. Still, the company’s hoping to make a splash in the United States with this phone. It’s also launching the Ascend D Quad XL, with the same specs but a bigger battery.
Availability: Second quarter, 2012.
