First 6.1” Huawei Ascend Mate Unit Appears in China
Many phone manufacturers are getting into action for releasing huge smartphones. The Huawei Ascend Mate isn’t an ordinary big-screen handset, it will feature a 6.1” 1080p display, which yields 361ppi of pixel density. While it’s expected that the device will make a debut at CES 2013, it is unexpectedly appear at a Huawei official store in China.
The phone will be powered by Huawei’s proprietary processor the 1.8GHz K3V3 quad-core processor. It has a huge 4000mAh battery and measures 9.6mm thick. There’s no word about which Android version Ascend Mate will be running, but it may have Jelly Bean.
The ridiculously large handset will be accompanied by a smaller device, the Ascend D2 with a 5” display. Samsung Galaxy Note II is currently considered as the largest superphone with its 5.5” Super-AMOLED HD display. Many already consider the Note 2 really pushes the limit and it remains to be seen whether the Ascend Mate with its 6.1” of visual real estate will be similarly usable.
