    The benchmarks are indeed impressive for A9 SOC (The only 8 core A9 SOC In market and beats all other A9 based SOC).Much better then Exynos or Tegra3.I think only Krait platform and A15 Exynos SOC will beat this SOC in performance.Quite impressive.I hope Huwai introduces high end phones in Pakistani Market.Let's wait and see what kind of SOC comes with GS3.

    Huawei Unveils the "World's Fastest Smartphone"

    "Huawei Unveils Quad-Core Ascend D Smartphones

    [The world's fastest smartphone: Huawei quad-core Ascend D in black.]

    BARCELONA—Huawei kicked off Mobile World Congress here by introducing the quad-core Ascend D quad, which the company has dubbed the "world's fastest smartphone."

    Huawei also unveiled the Ascend D quad XL and Ascend D1.

    The Ascend D quad and quad XL boast a 4.5-inch, 1280-by-720 HD touch screen that Huawei said is the "most compact" option on the market thanks to an "infinity" screen design.

    The devices run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, the most recent version of the mobile OS. The Ascend D will run a 1.2-GHz Huawei K3V2 processor, while the Ascend D quad XL will include a 1.5-GHz chip.

    Both devices include 32-bit true color graphic processors, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with 1080p full HD video capture and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera with 720p video capture.

    The Ascend D includes a 1800mAh battery, while the Ascend D quad XL boasts a 2500mAh battery.

    The Ascend D1, meanwhile, also includes a 4.5-inch screen, runs Ice Cream Sandwich, and the 8-megapixel rear-facing and 1.3-megapixel front-facing cameras. But the Ascend D1 will run a TI OMAP4460 1.5-GHz chip and a 1670mAh battery.

    The Ascend D quad and D1 measure 8.9 x 64 x 129mm, while the Ascend D quad XL comes in at 10.9 x 64 x 129mm.

    All three smartphones include 8GB of memory and 16GB of RAM.

    The devices will not initially be 4G LTE-capable, but it's expected by Q3 or Q4, Huawei said.

    Huawei promised "excellent" outdoor screen quality, which will enable use even in direct sunlight. The company also said the Ascend smartphones will include 330 pixels per inch (PPI); the iPhone 4S includes 326 PPI, Huawei was quick to point out.

    Huawei also talked up the voice quality of the new Ascend devices, which include dual microphone noise reduction thanks to the company's Audience earSmart technology. Huawei said this will decrease background noise - if a friend leaves you a message from a noisy bar, for example.

    The Ascend D quad devices will be available in China, Australia, Europe, Asia-Pacific, North and South America, and the Middle East in the second quarter. The Ascend D1 will be available in the same markets starting in April.

    The devices will originally come in white and black, but more color options will be available at a later date.

    Pricing was not announced.

    Huawei shipped 20 million devices last year, which it hopes to increase to 60 million this year, thanks in large part to the Chinese market."

    Also

    Huawei has launched the Ascend D Quad family, which has an in-house developed quad-core processor, as the Chinese network equipment company tries to become a competitor in the high-end smartphone space.

    So far, Huawei has seen some success in the low-end smartphone sector, but at an event on Sunday at Mobile World Congress it was clear the company wants to move up in the world and compete with the likes of Apple, HTC and Samsung Electronics.

    The smartphones that will help the company do that are the Ascend D Quad and the Ascend D Quad XL, which both use Android 4.0, come with a 4.5-inch high-resolution screen and an 8-megapixel camera that can record movies at 1080p. Both phones also have 8 GB of memory.

    At first, the phones will only support 3G, but during the second half of 2012 the company will ship LTE (Long Term Evolution) versions, it said.

    But the most important part is the processor. The K3V2 processor uses a 64-bit architecture and a clock speed running at either 1.2 or 1.5 GHz, which will help make the Ascend D Quad family the fastest phones in the world, Huawei said.

    Besides performance, Huawei has put a lot of effort into improving the battery life, which is a weakness in current smartphones, according to the company.

    For example, both versions of the K3V2 processor can switch to a low-power option when users are doing less computing intensive tasks and then speed up when they are playing games. Huawei has also added some proprietary power management technology to improve battery performance, it said.

    The difference between the Ascend D Quad and the Ascend D Quad XL is the size of the battery -- 1,800 mAh versus 2,500 mAh. The bigger battery makes the latter model slightly thicker -- 10.9 millimeters versus 8.9 millimeters.

    Huawei's brand isn't well known among consumers, so the company has to make up for that with better performance, according to Richard Yu, chairman of Huawei Device, who also said that the company will put out a tablet, which will also have a quad-core processor.

    The products are impressive, and the use of Huawei's own silicon is a big step forward, according to Ben Wood, director of research at CCS Insight. Taking into account the performance combined with Huawei's aggressive pricing, the established vendors of Android-based smartphones should be worried, he said.

    Huawei didn't announce any pricing, but Yu said the phones will be 20 to 50 percent cheaper than competing products.

    If that becomes a reality, vendors like HTC and Sony should be nervous, according to Francisco Jeronimo, research manager at IDC. But a good product and price isn't enough; Huawei will also have to improve its brand recognition, he said.

    The Ascend D Quad family will be available in China, Australia, Europe, Asia-Pacific, North and South America, and the Middle East during the second quarter.

    This would totally wipe out Samsung's precarious new-found market presence. Start with China first, and beat Samsung in local markets all over the world. Huawei needs good commercial branding like Apple.

    Samsung will lead for a long time to come as long as Huawei keeps their screen sizes significantly smaller than Samsung. Samsung just came out with their Galaxy Note smartphone. This has a 5.3" AMOLED screen with dual-core processor. This is going to become the biggest hit in smartphones this year.
