A new leaked press render shows off the Huawei Ascend Mate before the 6.1 inch Android flavored device heads to Las Vegas for CES 2013. Last week, Huawei Chairman Richard Yu surprised a whole Huawei Store full of shoppers by showing off the device, which he just happened to have with him. There is some disturbing news about the phone, which is the speculation that the screen will have 720p resolution. Consider that a 1080p resolution on a 5 inch screen like the HTC DROID DNA works out to a spectacular 441ppi pixel density. The 720p screen on the Samsung Galaxy S III results in a 306ppi pixel density, but that is for a 4.8 inch screen. Perhaps a higher resolution screen would have sent the price of the phone skyrocketing, but if this is true, it cannot be good news for those who are getting spoiled by the new wave of smartphones with a pixel density well above Retina display territory. One piece of potentially good news is the rumor that the battery on the phone weighs in at 3800mAh.. For those who like to compare, the cell on the Samsung GALAXY Note II is 3100mAh.
Another Android phone that the Chinese based manufacturer has packed for the trip to Vegas is the Huawei Ascend D2. With a 5inch, 1080p screen, this device has the resolution that the Ascend Mate should have had. A quad-core 1.5GHz processor is under the hood and there is a 13MP camera on back. Android 4.1 should be installed out of the box, and ready to go.
Lastly, there is the Huawei Ascend W1, a Windows Phone 8 model with a 4 inch display, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, and a 2000mAh battery. The device will be available in four colors.
