Huawei's 6.1-inch Ascend Mate is official Unofficially revealed last month, Huawei has officially unveiled their 6.1-inch 720p beast, the Ascend Mate.
The device has the largest screen yet of any smartphone, and the company claims it takes up 73 percent of the front of the phone.

Huawei added "Magic Touch" to the screen, as well, which will allow users to type and utilize their phone with gloves on. Powering the massive screen is a 4050 mAh battery and a Hi-Silicon 1.5 GHz quad-core processor.

Android 4.1 is the operating system, with an expected update to 4.2 in the future.

There are dual cameras, including a standard 8MP rear camera. More importantly, the company says the phone can last two days on a charge thanks to power management tech and its giant size.

The Ascend Mate will be released in March with no word on price.

well, i thought the same for samsung note II, too but now i have started liking the phablet concept. i will wait for rumored samsung note III 6.3" to see which fits me better.
reading even a complex powerpoint slide is comfortable in samsung note phablets without killing ultra-portability; holding against ear feels awkward but i think i can get used to as long as i don't drop the device owing to its bulkiness.

Am I the only one who has a problem with a phone that doesn't fit into the pockets of jeans and pants?
