Huawei creates the world’s largest 6.1-inch smartphone
Huawei has released the world’s largest smartphone with a massive 6.1-inch high definition screen at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
The Huawei Ascend Mate is sporting the biggest screen seen on a smartphone that measures a pocket-stretching 6.1-inches.
That’s 2.1-inches larger than the iPhone 5 screen and 1.3-inches bigger than the Samsung Galaxy S III.
It is even .6-inches larger than Samsung’s larger Galaxy Note II.
Also on board is a 1.5Ghz quad core processor and an 8-megapixel camera and it is powered by the Android 4.1 operating system.
The device is 16.5cm long, 8.6cm wide and only 9.9mm thick and weighs in at 198g.
The Ascend Mate’s screen has a high definition resolution of 1280 x 720 and incorporates proprietary technology like QPR (quick power control) and Automated Discontinuous Reception (ADRX) for increased battery efficiency.
Speaking of the battery, the one inside the Huawei Ascend Mate is a 4050 mAh battery so is powerful to run the large device all day long.
“The Huawei Ascend Mate breaks barriers to deliver a supercharged entertainment, communication and creative experience for all your personal and professional needs,” said Richard Yu, CEO, Huawei Consumer Business Group.
“The Huawei Ascend Mate is an industry-leading smartphone and showcases our innovation as we continue to make great technology available to more people globally.”
The Huawei Ascend Mate is available in Crystal Black and Pure White and goes on sale in February.
And with a name like Mate we expect to see it in Australia sooner rather than later.
