Aside from the Ascend D2, a 5-inch smartphone, it looks like Huawei has another gigantic phone which is about to debut during CES 2013. If my memory serves me right, this smartphone was first seen sometime in October being demoed in a Huawei store. But now, the mysterious handset was pictured by Chinese site MyDrivers and based on those photos, the Huawei Ascend Mate will be sporting a huge 6.1-inch screen display.
You read it right folks, that’s a gigantic 6.1-inch display. It’s bigger than the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and even Huawei’s own Ascend D2. That 6.1-inch display is coming in at 1080p full HD resolution as well. Aside from the display, the Huawei Ascend Mate will also be featuring a quad-core 1.8 GHz processor (Huawei K3), 2GB of RAM, 13MP rear camera and a 4,000 mAh battery. It will also be sporting a thin form factorat 9.9mm.
The published photos also include a poster of the promotional material that Huawei will be using for the launch of the 6.1-inch Ascend Mate. And from what we can gather, it seems that Huawei is going all out in promoting their handset a better alternative to the Galaxy Note 2 which is currently doing pretty well in the market.
Can Huawei succeed in taking a piece of the pie that Samsung is enjoying right not in the so-called “phablet” market? That will be interesting to watch out for.
