The Samsung Galaxy Note was the first "smartphone/hybrid" device launched which coined the term "phablet". Since then a whole host of smartphones have launched with larger displays including the Galaxy Note II.
Huawei now look set to become the latest manufacturer to launch an over-sized smartphone with the Huawei Ascend Mate. Details of the Huawei Ascend Mate have been spotted by UnwiredView on Huawei's own website.
The Ascend Mate will have a whopping 6.1 inch touch-screen , which means it's just 0.9 inches smaller than the Google Nexus 7 tablet and a full 0.5 inches bigger than the Note II. The display will run at 1080p (1920*1080 pixels) which will make a truly amazing device for multimedia playback and web-browsing.
Huawei's Ascend Mate will be powered by a 1.8 Ghz quad-core processor and will be backed up by 2GB of RAM. This should ensure that the smartphone runs smoothly even with the high resolution monstrous display.
Sadly, that's all the details we have about the Huawei Ascend Mate at this time , but 3G will let you know as soon as we hear more about the new hybrid device.
