The Ascend D1 quad is now available through Huawei's distribution partner AZAQ (Ali Zaid Al Quraishi & Brothers Co. LTD) in retail outlets across KSA including E-max, Carrefour, Extra, Lulu, Hyper Panda, Bin Dawood, Manuel, Ahmed Abdul Wahed, Al Danub, Al Musbah, Jarir Bookstore and more.
The Ascend D1 quad is turbo-charged all around, combining good looks and performance with an exceptional audio visual experience. The Android 4.0 smartphone features an 1800mAh battery that lasts up to two days with normal usage. The Ascend D1 quad also keeps you on-the-go more than 30% longer than the industry average by adjusting power consumption according to usage needs.
"Huawei has listened to people's top demands and focused significant resources over the last year to bring distinct advancements into the Middle East gadget industry," notes Jiao.
"The Ascend D1 quad exceeds all these expectations while expanding the realm of possibilities for consumers with Huawei's own super-fast processor, extended battery life, and high-quality audio visual capabilities."
Breaking the industry mold, Huawei has selected to run the device with its own proprietary quad-core chipset; becoming one of only a small number of vendors globally to fully develop their own quad-core processors. Featured exclusively within Huawei devices, the company now holds a coveted position within the industry in being able to pioneer its own advancements within the processor arena, schedule the release of such advancements, and realize cost efficiencies by managing the production line.
Over the course of 2012 Huawei has carved out a solid foothold in the consumer market through an aggressive lineup of high-end devices that are expected to contribute to a 30% growth in Huawei's global consumer business—projecting revenues of $9 billion by the end of 2012.
Within KSA, Huawei has also focused on strengthening its regional distribution partnerships to consumers over the last year, and has successfully introduced a number of local smartphone models through the open market as well as operators. This includes the Ascend P1 LTE smartphone released earlier this fall—the company's first LTE-compatible smartphone and one of only a handful available in the region.
Although a relative newcomer to the smartphone and tablet market, Huawei is already the world's sixth-biggest maker of mobile phones and has stuck to ambitious plans for establishing itself as one of the top three global smartphone vendors by 2015.
