HUAWEI’s ’swift sharing’ functionality enables pictures, videos and other files to be uploaded two- to three-times faster than other smartphones in a Wi-Fi environment.
To optimise screen visibility in all lighting conditions, HUAWEI’s smart brightness technology calculates the next light transition point in a bright lighting environment and maintains a gradient brightness variation control.
To increase audio capabilities, the HUAWEI super hands-free allows users to be heard within a radius of 1.5 meters, transforming smartphones into conversation sharing portals.
To enhance audio recording, HUAWEI’s stereo recording provides high-fidelity sound recording so you never again have fuzzy, unclear audio in your videos.
These industry-leading innovations are available in the HUAWEI Ascend D2 which will be on sale in China in January 2013.
