Huawei is taking a giant leap in the smartphone race as it unveiled what it claims to be 'the world's most powerful smartphone'- the Ascend D2 and ‘the world’s biggest smartphone’- the Ascend Mate at CES 2013.

The D2 is the successor to the little-seen D1 Quad. The D2 has a 1.5GHz K3V2 quad core CPU from Huawei, as well as Android Jelly Bean 4.1 as the OS of choice. It features a pin sharp 443 PPI display, a 5-inch size coupled with a 1080x 1920 resolution and features intelligent power control that means it can get up to six days' standby, according to the Chinese firm.

There's a 13MP camera on the back with decent low light ability. It also has advanced control such as being able to manually alter the colour temperature. There is a whopping 3,000mAh battery under the hood, which apparently charges 25 percent faster than the Samsung Galaxy S3 despite the larger power pack.

Huawei also claims that it's even dust and water resistant, which seems to be something of a theme for smartphones in 2013. The Ascend D2 will launch in January in China, and while there's no news on a global launch there is a big chance the rest of the world will get a taste.

The Ascend Mate is the larger of the two and is equipped with a 6.1-inch 720p display, a 1.5GHz in-house quad-core processor, an 8-megapixel rear camera and a massive 4,050 mAh battery. The smartphone is equipped with the same 1.5GHz quad-core processor as its smaller sibling and includes a 3,000 mAh battery and a 13-megapixel rear camera.

The Ascend Mate also includes a “Magic Touch” feature, which provides enhanced screen responsiveness even when wearing gloves. Both devices run Huawei’s Emotion user interface atop Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and also feature on-screen navigational keys.
