6.1-inch Ascend Mate gets unveiled a little early thanks to Huawei executive

Huawei’s Chairman of Devices, Richard Yu, couldn’t wait any longer and whipped out the upcoming Ascend Mate. The highlight of this beast is the 6.1-inch display that might make the Galaxy Note II look rather small. It also sports a 1.8GHz HiSilicon K3V3 quad-core CPU and a 4.000mAh battery. At 9.9mm of thickness and a price of ¥3,000 (about $480), could this push Huawei over the top? Stay tuned because we will be there live to see this one along with the Ascend D2 and Ascend W1.

    1.5Ghz clock, 4050mAh battery and only 5mm wider than the Note 2.
    The screen even though it’s only 720p is superb with great viewing angles.
    The fact that it’s also only 3g doesn’t phase me as the local 4g network is saturated and slow.
    When I saw the Ascend Mate in store the other day, the quality construction amazed me. Considering it retails for $429 the is no noticable difference between this device and the Note 2.
    This is my next phone and tablet.
