OK, surely the China based OEM decided to spring for a higher resolution panel like 1080 x 1920 FHD glass instead of the 720 x 1280 resolution panel that the original Ascend Mate offered, right? Uh, wrong. Still weighing in at a resolution of 720 x 1280, the Ascend Mate 2 shares its predecessor's rather uninspiring pixel density of 241ppi. Some of the change in the sequel happens to be in the dimensions as the new model is thinner and shorter.
The Ascend Mate 2 will continue to feature some home grown silicon in the form of the quad-core 1.6GHz Huawei Kirin 910 processor. That replaces the quad-core 1.5GHz K3V2 used on the original model. 2GB of RAM remains on board and the back and front snappers come in at 13MP and 5MP respectively. That is an upgrade from the 8MP camera that adorned the back of the original unit. Android 4.2.2 is pre-installed.
We expect to see the Huawei Ascend Mate 2 receive a proper introduction at CES. Right now though, we have some new photos of the device for you to stare at below.
