Ascend Mate Unveiled, Boasts World's Largest Phone Screen

Huawei has officially unveiled its 6.1-inch phablet in the form of the tablet/smartphone hybrid Ascend Mate.

The 6.1-inch 720p screen, claimed to be the world's largest screen found on a phone, accounts for around 73 percent of the front of the smartphone, which is powered by a 4050 mAh battery. The Chinese smartphone manufacturer integrated Magic Touch, which allows users to utilize the device with gloves.

Pop up windows that float over a current app is also featured, as is 'Quick Power Control'; Huawei claims it can decrease 10 percent of power through smart connection management.

Powered by Huawei's Hi-Silicon 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, the Ascend Mate, which was showcased by an executive prior to the official unveiling during CES 2013, runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

As well as an 8-megapixel camera, the battery is said to last two days on a single charge due to power management (and sheer size).

Although price details remain unclear, Huawei confirmed a worldwide launch for the Ascend Mate during March, 2013.

    FPO: For purses only...

    Seriously, I don't have a pocket that big, and I am the guy who takes his checkbook with him everywhere...

    Either that, or I use this as a student, with this in my backpack all day, and a bluetooth headset in my ear... Except, I don't like BTHS...
  • I canfit the Nexus 7 tablet into the pockets of my pants that I wear to work... I've actually tried... The bigger the better I say... each to their own.

    if I could use my nexus 7 as a phone, I would. Not necessarily hold it up to my ear, but a Bluetooth or even wired headset would be fine.

    4050 mAh battery is a step in the right direction, if Huawei can do it, so can Samsung, HTC, etc.
