Huawei has unveiled a 6.1-inch phablet and a new flagship smartphone at CES.
The Ascend Mate (pictured) boasts the largest smartphone screen in the world and has a 1080p x 720p resolution. Huawei said its battery lasts for two days on a single charge and has the fastest charging speed of any smartphone. It runs Android Jelly Bean on a 1.5GHz quad-core processor. The phone will first go on sale in China next month.
Richard Yu, CEO for Huawei's consumer business group, said: 'The Huawei Ascend Mate breaks barriers to deliver a supercharged entertainment, communication and creative experience for all your personal and professional needs. The Huawei Ascend Mate is an industry-leading smartphone and showcases our innovation as we continue to make great technology available to more people globally.'
The Ascend D2, the Chinese manufacturer's new flagship device, will go on sale in China later this month. It has a five-inch screen, a 13-megapixel camera and runs Android Jelly Bean on a 1.5GHz quad-core processor. The manufacturer will also bring a 4.7-inch screen version to market.
