Huawei Ascend D2 quietly slips on sale for $640 in China

The Huawei Ascend D2 was one of the stars at CES, so to hear that the flagship Huawei phone went on sale today without any official ceremony of celebration is quite surprising.

According to Huawei’s official Weibo account, the Ascend D2 went on limited sale earlier this evening through the company’s official Taobao store for the princely some of 3990 Yuan ($640).

Although the price may seem high to international buyers, it is actually considered pretty affordable in the eyes of most tech savvy Chinese buyers, and actually works out to be 700 Yuan ($112) less than the HTC Butterfly (Droid DNA) with a similar specification.

If you like the Huawei Ascend D2’s specs but want to save some dough then you might want to wait until the 21st January when the ZTE Nubia Z5 will go on sale for 3456 Yuan ($555) or the 29th when the Oppo Find 5 will launch for 2998 Yuan ($481).
