Chinese handset maker Huawei has just been confirmed to launch its Ascend Mate phablet on March 21. The smartphone will be available in China for only 3,120 yuan outright, which is about $500 or €385.
According to GSMInsider, it’s unclear whether or not the Ascend Mate will be available outside China.
At this price, the smartphone could make an excellent deal for Android fans that cannot afford Samsung’s Galaxy Note II.
Huawei Ascend Mate will ship with the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system out of the box and a huge 6.1-inch IPS+ LCD capacitive touchscreen display that supports HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution.
On the inside, the smartphone will be equipped with a 1.5 GHz quad-core Huawei K3V2 processor, 2GB of RAM and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB).
