Huawei Ascend D1 Q won't go slim for quad core
Huawei in a series of teasers on Weibo and its forums (one, two since broken, three, four) has provided the first official look at the Ascend D1 Q. While they don't confirm the internal hardware, they do show a thicker design than the Ascend P1 S. The body would support talk of the "Q" referencing NVIDIA's Tegra 3 quad-core processor.
Virtually nothing else is visible, although a bulge for the rear camera could support it carrying at least an eight-megapixel camera like the P1 S. Huawei has already been fast enough to add Android 4.0 support on current Ascends and should carry it over.
More is promised surrounding the phone local time at February 21. With details coming in advance, it's not clear what Huawei's planned event at Mobile World Congress a week later will do besides show the MediaPad 10. [via Techorz]
