Huawei flaunts 6.1" Ascend Mate before CES

Huawei, the Chinese smartphone maker, is planning to launch a sequel to its Ascend line up at CES 2013 and apparently, its a big sequel in every sense. Although, the CES is just around the corner,8-11 January, but it looks like Huwaei's Chairman of Devices, Richard Yu, was too eager to wait that long.

It is supposed to sport a 6.1" 1080p screen which equips it with an impressive 361 ppi screen and also a 9.9 mm slim profile. A device that big will need two hand operation at most of the times.

The device is also reported to run on a quad core K3V3 chip clocked at 1.8GHz and sport a 4000 mAh battery compared to 3100 mAh and Samsung Exynos 1.6GHz quad core chip of its direct competitor, Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Precedent to this demonstration, Huawei had already confirmed their interest in starting such a competition by appealing to the customers to wait for their "better and cheaper" phablet.

The Huawei phablet is expected to be showcased during CES 2013 with an expected price tag of around 480$ (¥3000) . The version of Android it runs on is yet to be revealed but Jelly Bean is a safe bet.

Its all a wait and watch game but lets have a look at the video of the demonstration.
