Great news everyone! Huawei are planning to show off two 5-inch phones at CES in 2013, the Windows powered Ascend W1 and it’s Android brother the Ascend D2. Huawei’s management, however aren’t too excited and are expressing concern over high specs and pricing!

Huawei will be entering 2013 with not one but 2 5-inch, 1080 phones and plans to show them off at next year’s CES. Both the Windows 8 Ascend W1 and Android powered D2 boast impressive hardware, but there are concerns spces are too high which could push pricing beyond what most customers are happy to pay.

Update: The Huawei Ascend W1 will have a lower spec than the Android powered D2. The W1 will get a 4-inch 800 × 480 screen, 1.2GHz the Qualcomm S4 processor, 512mb RAM and a 5 megapixel camera.

According to rumors and leaked specs from the Ministry of communication the Ascend W1 and Ascend D2 will both come equipped with 5-inch 1080p screens, quad-core 1.5GHz Huawei Hass K3V2 processors, 13-megapixel camera and large 3,000 mAh!

Although the specification is quite high it isn’t much different from the Oppo Find 5 or ZTE’s Nubia Z5 phones which will sell for $480 and $400 respectively, which are well priced for off contract phones.

How much would you be willing to pay for a quad-core, 5-inch Huawei phone?

    Lies, wp8 device with 1080p screen is impossible. Htc says thats why 8x screen is only 4.3 because they planned 5 inch 1080 as flagship, but sadly wp doesnt support it.

      I came late, lol. That’s true, the maxim resolution that a WP8 can support is 1280 x 758, this is a bit more than 720HD, (by the way is the Nokia 920′s display resolution)

    If we ‘Ascend’ at the weekend we wont need phones or internet ;)

    For mere mortals, the spec seems the new standard for top line phones.
    Huawei’s ace up it’s sleeve is their power saving tech. I forget the specifics, doesn’t it have standby time of months?
