Huawei Ascend Mate has a whopping 6.1 inch HD display screen, 2 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal memory, which can be further expanded to 32 GB via a microSD card. Ascend Mate features a quad core processor running at 1.5 GHz. Along with that the phablet will have Huawei’s Emotion user interface, that will give the device’s home screen a new look.
On the camera front Huawei Ascend Mate has an 8 megapixel rear camera with 1080p video recording capability and a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera.
Another major feature of Ascend Mate is its massive 4050 mAh battery, which the company claims will provide up to two days of backup on a single recharge. This phablet can also double up as a power bank for charging other phones using a cable.
