The Huawei Ascend Mate, a 6.1 inch 1080p beast, gets impromptu introduction at a Huawei store

0. phoneArena 23 Dec 2012, 07:50 posted on

The 6.1 inch 1080p screen of the Huawei Ascend Mate was supposed to be introduced at CES, but when you have a beast like that in your pocket it is hard to keep quiet, so we can't really blame Huawei Chairman Richard Yu who gave the device an impromptu introduction at a Huawei store in Guangzhou; luckily, someone decided to record the event for prosperity...

The only thing about this device that could even be remotely a Note 2 killer would be the fact that it has a 1080p display. Everything else, I am sure, will fail in comparison. The Note 2 is way better in the simple fact that it can do A LOT more than this can.

The phone itself looks huge, but I think Huawei finally got their UI right. 1.8GHz quad core!

Huawei has ''PRETTY SOFT SPECS''. The Galaxy Note 3 will have the bendable 6.3 Inch 1080p screen, 2.0 ghz quadcore Exynos Arm cortex A-15 5450 with the ARM MALI T604 GPU, 3gb of ram,16 megapixel rear camera, 3.0 front facing camera, Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, 128gb of storage, 4200 mAh battery. Sounds to me like Huawei doesn't stand any chance against the Galaxy Note 3 nothing will....http://www.idigitaltimes.com/articles/1385​4/20121219/samsung-galaxy-note-3-release-date-2013​.htm

As much as I wish that those specs were true for the Note III, we all know that they aren't. The Note III will be a much better phone than what is out but it won't have near the specs that idigitaltimes is saying.

Digitimes is actually very credible this time as the source comes directly from Samsung themselves, not directly.

Exactly...Digitimes as well as Samsung directly on it's facebook page and twitter page stated the same specs. Now it's possible some kind of changes or add ons might exist as far as the Galaxy Note 3 is concerned. But they are not far off of the expected specs that's for sure.

This can't replace the phone!
Look at it - just too big..and has even more bezel than the Note 2.
So I don't see this competing with phablets at all

This Phablet is too damn BIG !! The Note models already push the limit of pocketability but Huawei surpassed it. I own a Samsung Note N7000 and I know what I`m talking about.

"If you had a phone with a 6.1 inch screen in your pocket, could you really keep quiet about it until CES in January?" A phone this big wouldn't fit in my pocket. I am glad that I just got the Note II. FLAWLESS DEVICE. Vest android device to date. Also, is this Huawei device going to get any updates? Note doesn't look too big because it has the SPen, this is way way too big

I WILL NEVER CARRY SOMETHING BIGGER THAN 5 INCHES, REMEMBER IT. YOU WILL NOT MAKE ME CARRY A 10 INCH PHONE.

Justice with the power section that they chose to put 4000 mAh considering the huge screen

Okay, based on the full frontal photo, screen size, aspect ratio, some measurements and simple math, the phone physical size came in at 162.8 x 85 x 9.6 mm (report).

The Note II is 151 x 80.5 x 9.4 mm
The Droid DNA is 141 x 70,5 x 9.73 mm
The Razr HD is 131.9 x 67.9 x 8.4 mm
And the iPhone 5 is 123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6 mm

What a beast!

Huawei is weak in software updates and user interface. So even if the device has better configuration than note 2 it won't be enough. ...

It is NOT just the big screen thats amazing in Note-II.. It has magic wand and soo many sw wonders up its sleeve. I even doubt this Huawei device has S-Pen, let alone other sw magic...

Huawei, I believe, is soon going to become a big player in the western world.
