Snaps of the front panel of a device that looks suspiciously alike to the gigantic Huawei Ascend Mate have been leaked by French Nowhereelse, revealing that a possible successor may be in the works as we speak. The alleged Ascend Mate 2 is reported to sport the exact same 6.1-inch screen as its forerunner, though it does appear to have grown in size, as you can see in the gallery below.
Considering some of the competition, the Huawei Ascend Mate may not appear that much of a giant, but do keep in mind that at 6.1-inches, there are a less than a handful of devices that tout a more impressive diagonal. Despite it's awesome size and generally great specs, however, the Ascend Mate doesn't seem to have been much of a hit with consumers. This could be due to a number of reasons – the IPS display, for one, is far from satisfactory at 720x1280 (241ppi). Moreover, Huawei's Emotion UI on top of the now aged Android 4.1.2 isn't everybody's cup of tea either, especially in the West, where the company is struggling to win over hearts.
