The good news, the Ascend Mate has the highest screen-to-body ratio in the industry at 73%. The bad news, its coming to China, probably not here. Operating on Android 4.0 it showcases its 6.1 inch HD display, 1.5 GHz Hi-Silicon quad-core processor and a 4050 mAh battery. Even with a big screen, battery time holds steady due to Huawei’s proprietary Quick Power Control and Automated Discontinuous Reception battery efficiency technology. Screen resolutions sits at 1280 x 720. Design wise, it is slim coming in at 6.5mm at its narrowest part.
Interestingly enough it includes “Magic Touch” for enhanced screen response so you can use it even with gloves. It is supported for global roaming at five frequency bands. The 8.0 megapixel AF rear facing camera has HDR and also a 1.0 megpixel front facing camera. Covering all its bases it has both the dual MIC noise reduction tech, as well as Dolby sound and stereo recording. Swift sharing allows very fast uploads, especially in comparison to other smartphones. Avaialble in crystal black and pure white in China, February 2013.
