Huawei Ascend Mate is Revealed
There’s something huge brewing in Huawei’s headquarters and it is a phablet with 6.1” display. The handset is called the Huawei Ascend Mate and it could be aimed to take on phablets released in the market today, including the Samsung Galaxy Note II. The device comes with 6.1” 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution display, 1.8GHz K3V3 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and a generous 4000mAh battery, all crammed inside a 9mm thin chassis. The Huawei’s K3V3 is a new processor and it could be a direct improvement over the quad-core K3V2 used by the Ascend D Quad. Android 4.1 could be the version of choice with the EMUI 1.5 interface on top.
The 6.1” display is obviously Ascend Mate’s primary selling point and it effectively outshines the Galaxy Note 2 with its 5.5” display. The display could be too large for some people to handle, especially those who already struggle with the 4.8” display used by the Samsung Galaxy S3. The device is still pocketable, which allows it to work like a smartphone.
