Huawei Ascend Mate 2 carries a $445 price tag

Announced earlier this month at CES 2014, Huawei’s Ascend Mate 2 is an interesting phablet: it’s the only one that can charge other handsets, thanks to its huge 4,050 mAh battery that comes with a Reverse Charge ability.

The Ascend Mate 2 will be released around the world starting this quarter, and we now know how much it’s going to cost.

Huawei’s Vmall Chinese online shop is taking orders for the new phablet, asking $445 (2,688 CNY) for it. That kind of money gets you a 6.1-inch LTPS display with 720 x 1280 pixels, Android 4.3, Huawei’s Emotion UI 2.0, a 13MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support.

The LTE version of the Ascend Mate 2 comes with a quad-core 1.6GHz Snadpragon 400 processor, while the 3G model is powered by a quad-core 1.6GHz Hisilicon V9R1 CPU.

Huawei intends to launch the Ascend Mate 2 LTE in the US, but it’s not clear when it’s going to do it, and neither if the company has found a carrier to partner with on this one. Naturally, we’ll let you know when we have official details about the Ascend Mate 2’s arrival in the US.
