The Huawei Ascend Mate 2 smartphone was unveiled at the recently concluded CES 2014 event with much buzz and hype. While at first glimpse it appeared to be a conventional large sized phablet, Huawei pulled off a rabbit out of its hat by announcing that the smartphone can be used to charge other mobile devices as well. This is quite a luxury to have in a smartphone but not a surprise considering the beefy 4,050 mAh battery on the smartphone. Today we have a word on the pricing of this gargantuan smartphone, thanks to Chinese online retailer Vmall which is owned by Huawei.
The smartphone has been listed for 2688 Chinese Yuan ($444) which is certainly not a lot considering what it brings to the table. Huawei has mentioned that it plans to launch the smartphone globally, so it won’t be restricted to China, which is very good news. We can expect Europe and other Asian markets to get the smartphone in the coming months, with U.S. launch slated to commence in March according to the company.
The Ascend Mate 2 packs a 6.1 inch 720p display, a 13MP camera on the back, a quad core 1.6 GHz Snapdragon 400 SoC, 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, 2GB of RAM, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and the aforementioned 4,050 mAh battery.
