During IFA 2014, Huawei officially announced the Huawei Ascend Mate 7 smartphone. The phone comes with a 6-inch screen powered by Huawei’s own octa-core processor. Two variants of the device are being produced. The first is a 3GB of RAM version that comes with 32GB of internal storage.
Huawei Ascend Mate 7 is expected to feature a 6-inch 2560x1440 pixels touch screen, a 13 MP rear camera with LED flash, and a 5 MP front snapper. The Ascend Mate 7 has also been rumored to pack 3GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage.
It seems like we have been waiting for the release of the Huawei Ascend Mate for a really long time, but in reality Huawei is not too late in releasing the device relative to some of our earlier projections of a February release date. Huawei has confirmed today the giant phone will be available in the Chinese market on March 21 for 3,120 yuan ($500 USD).
Just when we thought Samsung pushed the envelope with the Galaxy Note II and its 5.5-inch display, Huawei drove right over it with the Ascend Mate that was announced earlier today. It sports a whopping 6.1-inch IPS display at 720p. Seriously folks this is just about Nexus 7 territory, but Huawei thinks the consumer will eat it up.
Huawei’s Ascend Mate was a pretty highly anticipated device leading up to CES this year, and now Huawei’s made it official. The monster of a phone packs a 720p, 6.1-inch display, a Huawei-manufactured quad-core chip, and an extremely generous 4,050 mAh battery. Because it’s no fun to have a big phone if it dies within three days off the charger, right?
Last month images and specs of the Huawei Ascend Mate 2 leaked, and today we get another look. It appears that it will sport a brushed metal frame and a curved backside. This phone will sport a 6.1-inch (most likely 720p) display, a 1.6GHz quad-core processor, Mali 450 GPU, and 2GB of RAM.
Huawei showed off their Ascend Mate 2 at CES this year but didn’t mention a price for the device. Today, they’ve announced that they’ll be selling the Ascend Mate 2 for $445 this quarter. For the specs in the device, that’s a very reasonable price.
The Ascend Mate 2 has a 6.1 inch 720p screen, a massive 4,050 mAh battery, and Android 4.3.
