The device sporting the world's largest phone screen, Huawei's 6.1-inch Ascend Mate smartphone, has been given a price of $575.

With a release scheduled sometime later this month, the Ascend Mate can now be pre-ordered from a Chinese online shop, which has listed it for $575 (yes, international shipping is available).

Powered by Huawei's Hi-Silicon 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, the Ascend Mate runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Alongside an 8-megapixel camera and a 4050mAh battery, the device offers 32 GB of internal storage -- head on over to our hands-on impressions for a good look at this giant.

During CES 2013, Huawei also revealed the Ascend D2, which it claims to be the world's most powerful smartphone. For more on the device, check out our hands-on impressions.

    A 7 inch device with similar specs is $200

    So you're paying $375 for the cell phone modem and the luxury of -0.9 inches of screen?

    I'll wait for the Galaxy Note 3 later this year with a 6.3 inch screen and much better specs from a brand people have actually heard of.
