It hasn’t been a long time since the start of this year’s CES, and yet, many interesting devices have already popped up. One of the leading manufacturers at CES is undoubtedly Huawei, which is also one of the few Chinese ones that are actually moving up in a very fast rate. We’ve already encountered their next flagship phone, the Ascend D2, but this is something completely different. Enter the brand new Huawei Ascend Mate.
We have been aware of Huawei’s plans of releasing such a device as the Ascend Mate, but now this is the real deal. Namely, it’s a phablet device that is meant to compete with the likes of the highly-successful Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The Ascend Mate sports a gigantic 6.1 inch screen of HD resolution while keeping the bezels around it as thin as possible and therefore making the device still usable enough for day-to-day usage. Other highlights include a 1.5 GHz Hi-Silicon K3V2 quad-core CPU, 2 Gigabytes of RAM, the usual set of connectivity(WiFi a/b/g/n, DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0 and so on), a beefy 4050 mAh battery etc. Android 4.1 will be running on top of it, customized with Huawei’s next-gen user interface called Emotion UI. That brings a good amount of eye-candy and a couple of special functions, such as Guiding Wizard, Smart Reading, Magic Touch, Easy Panel and the very handy One-Hand UI.
We quite like the Huawei Ascend Mate. If you share our opinion, please do not hesitate to visit Huawei’s official site for more information.
