Ascend Mate is the upcoming successor to current Huawei Ascend Mate phablet. Current Ascend Mate was released on March this year with Huawei’s usual hardware consisting 1.5Ghz Cortex-A9 HiSilicon K3V2 1.5Ghz processor, 2GB RAM, 8GB ROM. Display is a 6.1inch 720P IPS LCD display. Huawei has a quick release schedule unlike Apple,HTC and Samsung who releases next iterations to current smartphones only once an year.
Previously we brought you the news about Ascend Mate 2′s front bezel pictures getting leaked on the internet. http://huaweinews.com/2013/08/ascend-mate-2-leaked/ That was almost 3 months ago and today one of our readers (who wish to keep anonymous) pointed us to a weibo photo album which had photos of Ascend Mate 2 and a screen shot of Android settings page showing the Android version,model name and other usual details. Unfortunately before we saved the photos, it got removed from Weibo probably because of security concerns. However our tipster has provided us an another link for the photos.
Our tipster also mentioned that specifications listed on the removed album were 1.6Ghz quad core processor, 16GB internal memory, 2GB Ram, Android 4.2.2 with EMUI2.0. Speaking about the screen the leaked pictures of bezel indicated the screen size will be the same as current Ascend Mate which is 6.1 inches. However Ascend Mate 2 might feature an 1080P display instead of 720P. We have a strong guess that Huawei will use the same HiSilicon Kirin 910 processor on the upcoming Mate 2 because that processor is also clocked at 1.6Ghz with Mali-450 graphics core. Read our yesterday’s article about it here - http://huaweinews.com/2013/11/ascend-p6s-hisilicon-kirin-910/
These new leaked pictures of Ascend Mate 2 correlates with the previously leaked bezel pictures (see below). We will update you with more information as we receive.
