Huawei Ascend Mate, big bang for small buck

Huawei Ascend MateThe Huawei Ascend Mate do have a knack of “pushing the limits”. The smartphone was announced back at Consumer Electronics Show 2013 held at Las Vegas and soon got the attention of many. The size was what made the Huawei Ascend Mate stand out, or shall I say tall from the rest of the CES products. Measuring at 6.1 inches the Huawei Ascend Mate is a bid phablet device, almost breaching the line between a phone and a tablet. With the specs the smartphone was boasting, we suspected the Huawei Ascend Mate will be price accordingly, looks like we were wrong (hopefully).

A Chinese site Liaow has published a page for Huawei Ascend Mate, citing that the smartphone will only cost around $575. This may be wrong information, but as Huawei is a smart company it seems to be a very appropriate choice. The Huawei Ascend Mate will be going toe to toe with the Samsung Galaxy Note II, which is on sale for around $700. The price will obviously get inflated when the Huawei Ascend Mate tries to come to the US and UK. The pesky taxes and shipping costs will make the price go a little bit up, so don’t get to excited just yet.

The Huawei Ascend Mate has some respectable specs too, coming with a 6.1 inch IPS+ High Definition display, a 1.5 GHz quad core process and an 8 megapixel camera. The smartphone also has 32 GB with of on board memory as well as Android Jelly Bean on it. The mist attractive part of the Huawei Ascend Mate is the inclusion of a gigantic 4,050 mAh battery.  The big battery is definitely a plus, at least in our books. Those of you who are not willing to shell top dollar for the Galaxy Note II or need a rather big battery, should keep an eye on the Huawei Ascend Mate.
