Last week, Huawei officially launched their supersized pocket cinema phablet. The Huawei Ascend Mate is their largest smartphone so far having a 6.1-inch HD screen.
The Huawei Ascend Mate has a screen-to-body ratio of 73% which is currently the highest in the market. The 6.1-inch HD IPS+ LCD screen has a resolution of 1280 x 720 and Magic Touch for screen responsiveness even when used with gloved fingers. That display, along with 6.5mm thin (on its narrowest part) gives you a huge viewing area on a device that you can comfortably hold with one hand.
It uses the same 1.5GHz Huawei K3V2 quad-core chip as their Ascend D1 Quad XL along with a 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage plus a microSD slot. There’s an 8.0 megapixel AF rear-facing camera and a 1.2-megapixel HD front-facing one.
