With Vivo and next Oppo offering phones with 2K displays, it is no wonder that phone giant Huawei are considering the tech for their next device.

Chinese manufacturers have a love affair with the latest hardware so it comes as no surprise that China is at the forefront of screen technology. While phones with 2K 2560 x 1440 resolution displays are far from mainstream it is becoming the trend for flagship devices.

The next company rumoured to offer a 2K display is Chinese giant Huawei. Apparently the phone will be the next instalment of the D series phones, likely the Huawei Ascend D3. Leaked specifications include a 5-inch 2K display with a pixel density of 587ppi, a 2.0Ghz octacore HiSilicon K3V3 processor and is reported to cost around $600.

The new D series phone will launch in September, just ahead of the the Xiaomi Mi4’s release date.

    do with a57 architecture to your next chipset please, a15 is getting obsolete, except your device is very cheap

    I still remember from 2 years ago when their CEO when showing off a 1080p 6″ device in Guangzhou and asking us to be patient and wait for the release. At the time they were trying to deflect people from purchasing a Find 5.

    When it shipped it was a 720p screen. Trust lost for all time.

    They can scream “2K” from the rooftops all day long, but I think they’ll never ship it.
