The world's eyes are on the latest smartphones that was introduced back at the MWC 2012 held in Barcelona Spain. When Huawei announced their new smartphones (flagship smartphones) the Ascend D Quad XL and Ascend D Quad, everybody was expecting a Qualcomm or NVIDIA chipset on them. Instead, Huawei shocked the world by saying that they will be using their very own chipsets on their flagship smartphones. They have the Huawei K3V2 (SoC) to power their new smartphones. The K3V2 is a Quad-Core chip that clocks at 1.2 GHz for the Ascend D Quad and a 1.5 GHz for the Ascend D Quad XL. As early as now, Benchmarks are now out pitting its performance against famous chipsets of today.
It was quite obvious that Huawei was happy to tell the world about their latest offering and dubbing them as "the World's fastest". If you will rely on the benchmarks then you will definitely agree with them. So far, the benchmarks are our only way to gage whether what they are telling us are true or not.
These handsets were given their first test, it is called Basemark. It is comprised of different individual tests that are design to stress out an Android handset. Everything is turned to one easy to comprehend number. The said Basemark stated that Huawei's chip was able to beat the famous NVIDIA's Tegra3 (Quad-Core) processor. This is the same processor that the Asus Transformer Prime (an Android Tablet). This is also true with Samsung Galaxy Note's Exynos Dual-Core 1.4Ghz Processor. Now, the two gadgets are today's best and fastest smartphone and Tablet. If what we are shown is true, then Huawei's chipsets are faster indeed.
The second test is called the Nenamark. This is basically a GPU test run that is capable of seeing a gadget's native resolution. The good news is the phone's 62.75 FPS (frames per second) beats Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 Dual-Core processor and Tegra 3 (again). With that alone, there is something promising about this handset.
The phone ships with a 4.5" 720p IPS display. It is packed with 1GB worth of RAM. It comes with a whopping 8MP camera with auto-focus and dual LED flash. It comes with 1080p video recording capability as well. You will also get a 1.3MP 720p front-facing camera on this. The phone ships with a large battery as well (2,500mAh Li-Ion battery) and runs on the latest Android Iteration (Ice Cream Sandwich).
