Huawei may be next in line with a dual-camera phone. If we can trust the image coming from Chinese website MyDrivers.com, the company’s upcoming Ascend D3 will be its first smartphone with two cameras on the back a la HTC One M8. In addition, this could also be Huawei’s first phone with an all-aluminum body.
The “in the wild” photo looks promising but it doesn’t tell us anything about the release date. We do think this device will be unveiled later in the year with the Chinese company hoping to get more customers during the Christmas shopping craze.
Dual camera setup aside, chances are the Ascend D3 will also boast Huawei’s own Kirin 920 octa-core chip, at least 2GB of RAM (if not 3GB), 4G LTE connectivity support (in some markets) and a solid front-facing camera for making the ever better selfies.
In addition to China, Huawei will want to sell its next flagship device in the Western hemisphere, as well. Alas, dealing with major carriers isn’t as easy as one would imagine. In the top end of the market, major operators keep pushing big brands like Samsung and Apple and their high-margin product, and more often than not – they end-up adding only Huawei’s low- and mid-end products to their portfolios. Perhaps something changes with the dual camera-equipped Ascend D3, perhaps not. We’ll have to wait and see.
