6.1 inch Huawei Ascend Mate to launch next week in China
The 6.1 inch Huawei Ascend Mate might never be found wearing the colors belonging to a U.S. carrier, but as the reigning King of the phablets, its movements across the sea need to be tracked. According to China based Huawei, the Ascend Mate will be launched in China on March 21st and has been priced at 3,120 Yuan ($502 USD), a lower price than what had been expected. 73% of the handset is made up of its screen, and at 9.9mm, the phone still is pretty slim for a device of its size.

For those who might have had the phone's specs slip their mind, the Huawei Ascend Mate offers a 6.1 inch screen with 720p resolution, which works out to a middle of the road 241ppi pixel density. The giant is powered by a quad-core 1.5GHz home grown K3V2 processor and has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage inside. The 8MP rear facing camera captures 1080p video while the 1MP front-facing camera handles self-portraits and video chat. A massive 4.050mAh battery in the Huawei Ascend Mate powers the phone, which has Android 4.1.2 installed out of the box.

After the launch in China, the device will launch in Europe where it has already been listed on Amazon Germany for a price of €499 ($625 USD).

China is the largest smartphone market, the smaller smartphone companies like to hit China first, make some good revenue and use that money to make a solid global launch.

And don't forget that Huawei is a Chinese company after all! Alan F.

Yeah, it would be suicide if they turned against their own people!
