At 6.1in, the Huawei Ascend Mate is one of the largest of the current range of smartphone/tablet hybrids – or “phablets”, if you prefer.
There was no word on Huawei Ascend Mate price when it launched at CES 2013, but one particular Chinese etailer is accepting preorders for a surprisingly reasonable amount.
Specifically, Liaow Meizu Shop will sell you a Huawei Ascend Mate for just $575 (US dollars).
That’s roughly £365, though needless to say that figure would/will creep up a bit if/when the Huawei Ascend Mate reaches the UK.
Huawei Ascend Mate specs include the aforementioned 6.1in display (720 x 1280), a quad-core 1.5GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB internal storage (with microSD support).
The Huawei Ascend Mate will ship with Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), while the camera weighs in at 8MP rear and 1MP front.
For our money, one of the sexiest things about the Huawei Ascend Mate is its gargantuan 4,050mAh battery. Huawei promises two days’ use on a single charge. Oh baby.
What do you think, peeps? Would you be interested in the Huawei Ascend Mate if it reached the UK? Let’s say… £400? Or is it too big for your wee paws?
