Huawei executive tells Samsung GALAXY Note II buyers to wait for the Huawei phablet
The Samsung GALAXY Note II

The Samsung GALAXY Note II

Back in October, a listing on the website of China's Huawei mentioned a new phone called the Huawei Ascend Mate. The device was listed with a 6.1 inch display, a full half inch larger than the screen on the Samsung GALAXY Note II, and featured resolution of 1080 x 1920. On Wednesday, the handset manufacturer's Senior Vice President Yu Chengdong confirmed that such a device is on the way.

While he wouldn't reveal any specs, including screen size, Chendong did call the Samsung GALAXY Note II "grossly overpriced"and told those looking to buy Samsung's phablet to hold off until Huawei releases its device. Chengdong promises his phablet will be cheaper and will outperform the GALAXY Note II. So how long is Huawei's Senior VP asking you to refrain from purchasing Samsung's latest phablet for? Not that long, according to Chendong who says his model will launch early next year.

The Huawei's screen is, "a full half foot larger than the screen on the Samsung GALAXY Note II." Now that is a big (11.5") phone!

I also highly doubt that Huawei can deliver the experience especially the software, but the spces look good indeed.

So a little wait does no harm.

What specs? They revealed the resolution & screen size. Nothing more.

Anybody thinking this Huawei handset will top the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has got to be kidding. Samsung blows away all in the industry period. Huawei is pretty comical.

Huawei is a joke

The joke is on buyers of overpriced Samsung smartphones -- you get just about the same specs for less with Huawei devices, respectively. Samsung wants people to overpay hundreds of dollars for devices that won't hold their value. Most android users are better off buying the Huawei clones and save $$$$.

After the Chinese government gave them a laon for $20 billion for over sea projects, I don't think so. Maybe they stole technology from Samsung and want to cash in. It didn't stop them from stealing technology from Motorola and Cisco . All I know is there phones are weak, cheap, and mostly on pre paid carriers.

Thats mostly because the prepaid carriers are cheap, they dont buy the good stuff. Huawei has good stuff, its just not well known outside of the People's Republic.

"Chengdong promises his phablet will be cheaper and will outperform the GALAXY Note II", The first might be true (a cheaper variant), but the latter I don't think so.

Agreed. Any China company can compete on price with cheaper labor but that does not mean the device is as robust nor the support for it makes it better at all.

Yeah, everyone knows the Exynos is a killer chip. I don't think a little-known Chinese company will be able to compete against it.

Huawei where is the Mediapad 10 FHD that was debuted back in February? You need to start releasing this devices in the US and faster to be taken seriously.

Huawei should consider adopting a new more universal/global/pleasant name. Every time i see that name I simply cannot ignore the image of back-alley Chinese kid throwing his hands up in a karate/fighting stance and screaming "HuaaaWeeei".

Kids from China can't throw their hands up in a karate/fighting stance?

Karate really comes from Okinawa via China. Back them, Okinawa was NOT part of Japan.

If anyone is IGNORANT, it's SleepingOz because anyone could have used their smartphone to verify this.

Haha nice try dude, but according to you, Ryukyu Islands are parts of which country exactly? China? LMAO!
It's like saying that the Apache culture is not American.

SleepingOz,

You are SO EFFENING IGNORANT. When Karate was invented, what is now known as Okinawa was called "Ryukyu" and was an independent kingdom of Japan or China. Therefore, Karate IS NOT FROM JAPAN.

Japan invade these islands in the 1600's. SleepingOz is being dumb in defending his ignorance.

Apache are NATIVE Americans -- there were Apaches BEFORE there was a USA.

SleepingOz, you keep making DUMB comments.

Do you think Samsung should do the same?

The brand strength depends on the success of the products it represents and not how it sounds.
