After many rumours, Huawei has launched the Ascent Mate 2 4G phablet at CES 2014 with a 6.1-inch HD (720p) IPS display. For this phablet the company has dumped its in-house chipset and gone in favor of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 400 processor with quad-core Cortex-A7 ticking at 1.6GHz with Adreno 306 GPU and 2GB RAM. In addition to that, the phablet has 16GB of internal storage, which can be expanded by up to 64GB using a microSD card. Ascent Mate 2 4G sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with autofocus, LED flash and HD recording, and a 5-megapixel front-facing snapper. Wireless connectivity features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS/A-GPS+GLONASS support. The phablet has been launched with a 4,050mAh battery, however the company has mentioned that the actual battery size may vary between regions.
It runs on the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out-of-the-box, with the company’s Emotion UI 2.0 topping it.
