Chinese company Huawei has big plans for this year’s Mobile World Congress trade fair. After introducing the world’s slimmest Android smartphone, the Ascend P1 S, during the International Consumer Electronics Show, Huawei is about to announce its most powerful smartphone.
The handset maker has started to send invitations for one of its events at the MWC 2012,
in Barcelona. The company invites media and fans to see for themselves
as “HuaweiDevicetakes a leap into the future of mobile communications to unveil their fastest smartphone yet.”
Shortly after launching the Ascend P1 S, Huawei confirmed plans to
debut an entire lineup of top-tier smartphones, which will be called
“Diamond” series. It looks like the first Diamond series device will be
announced at the end of this month.

Chengdong unveiled the name of the upcoming smartphone on his Webo
As the name suggests, Ascend D1 Q will be the
first Diamond smartphone available on the market. The “Q” letter

Moreover, Huawei also plans to announce a bigger and better Huawei tablet, a sequel to the 7-inch MediaPad slate, which will soon be shipped with Ice Cream Sandwich on board.
Huawei’s Chairman Yu Chengdong let it slip again that the new tablet will be called MediaPad 10 and will be delivered with a 10-inch touchscreen display.
There are no other details on any of the two
Huawei devices that are expected to go live at the Mobile World Congress
2012, in Barcelona. However, we can safely assume that both will be
powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, or a newer version of
Google’s mobile platform.
