Huawei Announces the Ascend Mate 2 4G

Huawei_ascend_mate_2_4GHuawei makes their Ascend Mate 2 4G official! This time last year the Ascend Mate was being announced by Huawei and just some three hundred and sixty some odd days later, the Ascend Mate 2 is official. Late last month leaky details surrounding the next generation Mate began finding their way into headlines. But now we know the full story behind the Mate 2 and it looks as if Huawei is bringing a rather awesome smart phone into the market place. So what is in an Ascend Mate 2 4G?

As you may have noticed the Mate 2 is the successor to the original Mate device. The Ascend Mate 2 4G starts with a 6.1 inch IPS LCD touch screen that offers up a 720×1280 resolution at 241 pixels per inch. The screen is built into a rather thin 9.5mm housing that packs in either a Qualcomm made Snapdragon 400 system chip or a Huawei made HiSilicon Cortex-A9 chip with a quad core 1.6 GHz processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage and a place for expandable micro SD memory up to 64 GB. A big bit of excellence with the Ascend Mate 2 is its battery. Measuring in at 4050 mAh the battery is said to provide up to “60 hours of normal use” and up to “12 hours of web surfing”. Additionally the battery management is so efficient the Ascend Mate 2 can charge other devices!  The Mate 2 4G as expected also comes with cameras. Around back of the device we find a 13 mega pixel camera with LED flash, while a 5 mega pixel sensor can be found up front. The device runs with Android version 4.3 and comes ‘skinned’ with the companies Emotion UI. Additional connectivity can be had found with the likes of GPS, A-GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 +EDR, Wi-Fi, micro USB 2.0, and DLNA. The specifics on a launch date and or pricing has not been unveiled outside of an Q1 release window, but the Huawei’s Richard Yu has confirmed the handset would be making its way stateside and mentioned At&t as one possible carrier.
