      Huawei 6.1inch Ascend Mate - Galaxy Note II Competitor

      Huawei's Chairman of devices, Richard Yu, popped into a Huawei store in Guangzhou, China recently and flaunted the Ascend Mate, a 6.1-inch smartphone with a 1080p resolution display, according to a report by Engadget. The handset is expected to make its official debut at the Consumer Electronics Show 2013.
      It is rumoured that the Huawei Ascend Mate features a 1.8GHz quad-core HiSilicon K3V3 processor. Engadget notes that this 1080p display features a pixel density of 361ppi.

      Wu stated that this handset features a LTPS type display, which may mean that it has a low temperature polysilicon. It is also known that the handset will include a 4000mAh battery, 2GB RAM and will be 9.9mm thick.

      Earlier this month, Huawei Vice President Yu Chengdong confirmed that the company plans to launch a smartphone that will compete directly against the Galaxy Note II. The Huawei executive claimed that the handset will be more powerful than the Galaxy Note II, will feature a cooler design, slimmer bezel, better grip, a more stunning display and will also have longer battery life. Chengdong went on to add that those interested in buying a larger smartphone should wait for the offering from Huawei as it is supposedly better and less expensive.

      From the looks of it, handsets these days are getting a lot bigger and the line between smaller 7-inch tablets and large smartphones is growing increasingly finer.

      This is not the first large handset from Huawei. In October, Huawei announced the Ascend D2 a quad-core handset with a large 5-inch display. The handset will compete with the likes of Samsung Galaxy Note, Note II and the LG Optimus Vu, which are all currently available in the market.

      The Ascend D2 features a 5-inch display with full HD resolution and a 1.5GHz quad-core processor. It sports a 13 megapixel rear camera, while the 1.3 megapixel camera found in the front can be used for video calling. The handset features a 3,000mAh battery that should keep it running for a significant amount of time. It is loaded with Android v4.1 Jelly Bean.

      The Ascend D2 made an appearance on GLBenchmark in late November this year, which revealed that the handset runs on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean out of the box. The benchmark's System tab revealed that the handset will feature a 1.5GHz quad-core processor and a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 1800x1080 with navigation buttons. The actual resolution of the device is 1920 x 1080 pixels.

      Huawei is expected to showcase the Ascend Mate, the Ascend D2 and the Windows Phone 8 handset Ascend W1 at the Consumer Electronics Show 2013.

      where is all the TAB battle going towards? Is it just a game of one-upmanship which will settle down eventually?

      Android is available right from 2.8 inch screen to 10 inch screens. There is no territory of scree size which has been left un touched. Samsung has been ruling most of these real estates - good to have competition. More the merrier!

      Now the time to attract is to innovate. Samsung came with the S-Pen. Similar other creative things would be a great experience for Android users. I just pray that Windows Phone comes up to speed as well and it should happen sooner than later. It'll be amazing to have two similar and capable platforms offering varierty of experience. More OEMs, more options, more features - mobile phone world is up and sprinting.

      Unfortunately, most new phones try and complete in terms of what under the hood. Dual core and quad core processors, soon we'll see octacores as well - 1GB and 2GB RAMS, soon we'll have 4 and 8 GB RAM as well. I honestly feel these are just the gimicks to loot money from stupid users. A mobile device with 1GB RAM and a simple 1 Ghz or 1.2 Ghz processor is more than enough to cater to the needs of existing requirements.

      I personally feel that advancement of hardware technology has to match with its software capabilities - or in other terms, with the features. There is no point buying a phone with Quad core processor and 2GB RAM when the feature capabilities of the phone is just to play few games and use few apps. In this situation, the excess hardware is just a liability to the battery than an asset to the user. I am hard pressed to find a good alternate to change my Galaxy SL, which should be compelling enough to make me switch. Haven't been able to find one and my Galaxy SL is able to perform all the basic Android tasks which any other Android in the current market is.

      rksingh1 - the problem is that with every newer version of Android coming up, the hardware requirements needs to be bumped. These are ARM processors which means there are restrictions in running new version of the upcoming software. I agree that a 1 Ghz dual core + 1 GB RM will be sufficient for people like us. Markets and people sentiments, why on earth will someone buy an iphone even after knowing that the new version will be available in 6 months time. (say Iphone 5 & the upcoming iphone 5S , same is the case of S3 & upcoming S4)
