Huawei Ascend Mate to Cross Swords with Galaxy Note II

December 10, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Huawei is prepping a challenger to compete against the Galaxy Note II. To tread the thin line between phones, tablets and phablets, the company is readying their 6.1-inches Huawei Ascend Mate.

The company CEO, Yu Chengdong, is set on providing his product with a superior edge, and is reportedly using both the Ascend Mate and the Galaxy Note II to compare them both. But he hasn’t let out any specifics on the comparison.

However, the CEO does claim his device to sport a “more stunning” display. That means the Ascend Mate might feature a 1080p display on the 6.1-inch screen.

The large screen size would be quite a handful, which would be the reason why the device would border with a slimmer bezel and chassis that makes gripping easier. I wonder whether it would be snug inside my pocket!

Chengdong didn’t reveal anything about the inside organs, nor did he mention anything about a stylus. The Galaxy Note II has one, and since they are pitting the Ascend Mate with the Note II, it should be a safe assumption that a stylus might take shelter inside.

The device is expected to feature  a 1.8GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM, as well as a bigger battery. Besides offering some impressive specs to better the Note II, the one side where they can ensure competition would be the price.

And they have secured that area by stamping an affordable cost, which is much cheaper than the Note II. Huawei is expected to unveil the product in January during CES, so let’s wait untill the official declaration.
