Huawei, as expected, has today officially launched the Ascend Mate in India. The 6.1-inch phablet, which became available on Infibeam last week, will now be available at retail stores across the country for Rs 24,900.
The specifications remain similar to the device that was first showcased at CES earlier this year. The phablet flaunts a 6.1-inch IPS (720×1280 pixels) display with Magic Touch technology, similar to the one on Nokia Lumia 920 that allows users to use gloves with the panel.
It is powered by a quad-core Huawei K3V2 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz and paired with 2GB of RAM. Other features included on the device are an 8-megapixel rear camera, 1-megapixel front camera, expandable memory up to 32GB, and a massive 4,050mAH battery that has a fast charge mode, and according to the company, delivers performance equal to a 5,000mAh battery.
Connectivity-wise, the device supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean wrapped in Huawei’s Emotion UI. In terms of competition, the Ascend Mate will be up against the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note II among others.
