Huawei is definitely one of the major smartphone vendors in the global smartphone market, the company is quite popular in certain regions even if it has little presence in the West. We’ve seen it unveil quite a few Android devices with respectable specifications, it even had the world’s slimmest Android smartphone at one point in time. It appears that the Chinese manufacturer is working on a successor for the Ascend Mate. Rumor has it that Huawei might unveil Ascend Mate 2 at CES 2014, which seems plausible, given the fact that the original Ascend Mate was also unveiled at CES earlier this year.
The Huawei Ascend Mate 2 is said to have a 1.6GHz quadcore HiSilicon Kirin 910 processor with a Mali-450 GPU. It is expected that the successor might come with a much better display, the Ascend Mate had a 6.1 inch 720p display, its likely that the Mate 2 might tout the full 1080p HD. The device is also said to come with 2GB RAM, 16GB of onboard storage and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with version 2.0 of Huawei’s own Emotion UI slapped on top. No word as yet on pricing and availability, though it wouldn’t be too much of a surprise if this smartphone never makes it to the West. This is the first major leak we’ve seen about the Ascend Mate 2, if it is definitely going to be unveiled at CES 2014, then its quite possible that there will be more in the coming weeks.
