Huawei’s Ascend P6S isn’t their only device that has leaked. Today, the Ascend Mate 2 has posed for some photos and we have information on the specifications for the handset. This phablet’s screen comes in at 6.1-inches. But we now know that it will be a 1080p IPS display. The Mate 2 will have a 1.6Ghz quad-core Cortex-A9 processor with 2GB of RAM and Mali-450 GPU. Like the Ascend P6S, this handset will run Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Huawei’s Emotion UI, but a software update could allow it to ship with Android 4.4 KitKat at launch. Right now we see 16GB variant as the only storage option. With both the Ascend P6S and Mate 2 seeing massive leaks as of late, we can expect to see them both formally unveiled fairly soon.

It seems like we have been waiting for the release of the Huawei Ascend Mate for a really long time, but in reality Huawei is not too late in releasing the device relative to some of our earlier projections of a February release date. Huawei has confirmed today the giant phone will be available in the Chinese market on March 21 for 3,120 yuan ($500 USD). You may recall the Ascend Mate comes with a huge 6.1-inch IPS display, a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and a gargantuan 4050mAh battery, running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
What is still unclear is whether the Ascend Mate will ever find its way outside of China. There is some hope that it will at least make it to some European markets like Germany, where Amazon has listed the device for €499 ($646 USD).

Just when we thought Samsung pushed the envelope with the Galaxy Note II and its 5.5-inch display, Huawei drove right over it with the Ascend Mate that was announced earlier today. It sports a whopping 6.1-inch IPS display at 720p. Seriously folks this is just about Nexus 7 territory, but Huawei thinks the consumer will eat it up. The rest of the specs should satisfy everything you desire with Huawei’s Hi-Silicon 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera, 1.0MP front camera, and a massive 4050mAh battery. It has Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and the latest version of the Emotion UI. Looks like China will get it in February, and as usual no word on a U.S. launch. Hit the break for the hands on video.
Huawei’s Ascend Mate was a pretty highly anticipated device leading up to CES this year, and now Huawei’s made it official. The monster of a phone packs a 720p, 6.1-inch display, a Huawei-manufactured quad-core chip, and an extremely generous 4,050 mAh battery. Because it’s no fun to have a big phone if it dies within three days off the charger, right? On top of that, the Ascend Mate will feature dual-band antennas for WiFi, which helps quite a bit when dealing with data caps. This beast will hit Chinese shelves in February, and other countries in March. No word on what other countries that’ll be, but hopefully this device gets the attention it deserves. Hit the break below for the press release, and be sure to check out the rest of our CES coverage here.
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.
In some not-so-surprising news, Huawei has finally come out and confirmed it is indeed working on a Samsung Galaxy Note II competitor. While speaking on the Chinese social networking page Weibo (China’s equivalent to Twitter), Huawei Senior VP Yu Chengdong took some time to tout up his company’s next beast of a smartphone. The device (which is speculated to be the Ascend Mate) will have a 6.1-inch full HD 1080p display and feature an in-house 1.8GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM– all the while having a “cooler” design than the current Galaxy Note II.
Unfortunately, the Huawei executive decided to leave the Android world collectively guessing and speculating what else could be found in the unique device, but at least we won’t have to wait long. The device is expected to be formally revealed at CES 2013 in January— which is only a month away.
Try to contain your excitement in the meantime folks.
As the phablet craze continues to really take off, we are seeing more and more offerings from respective Android manufacturers. Not content to allow HTC and Samsung dominate the party, Huawei has gone ahead and a 6.1-inch beastly phablet called the Huawei Ascend Mate. This device will come in at 9.9 mm of thickness, a 6.1-inch 1080p display, 1.8GHz K3 V3 quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM and a whopping 4,000 mAh battery. Boy oh boy those specs are a bit overwhelming. Good grief.
There are no actual photos of the device and no additional details for now, but if all holds true to what we’ve seen on the screenshot from the Chinese website above— we should see the device appear sooner than later.
