Huawei Ascend Mate, a 6.1inch Phablet:Specs

The screen size of the Androids/Smartphones is increasing further with the introduction of Huawei Ascend Mate Smartphone recently unveiled by Huawei’s chairman Richard Yu. The official unveiling will happen in CES 2013 press. Dell was the first to introduce the Streak 5 ‘Phablet’ (which is hybrid of Phone and Tablet) with big screen. The screen size of Huawei Ascend Mate is even bigger than Streak 5 which is 6.1 inch. With such big screens and new Smartphone features Huawei Ascend Mate will definitely compete the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2 and other large screen devices available in the market.
