 A lot of announcements and innovations coming out of the Consumer Electronics Show or simply CES 2014 in Las Vegas this week and of the companies who have made their new products revealed is the Huawei by unveiling the Ascend Mate 2 4G which is a massive and almost tablet-sized device sporting a 6.1-inch HD IPS+ LCD display. One of its selling points? Huawei claims it can charge other smartphone.

 Engadget says this Ascend Mate 2 sports an LTE Cat 4 which is capable of up to 150mbps download speed. That speed is really mind blowing, the last time I checked LTE-enabled devices they can only achieve download speed of up to 42mbps which is to me is already a super fast internet browsing experience, but 150mbps? I don't know, even the device launches here is the Philippines I don't think we will experience that speed maybe in the next several years, no one knows but of course the sooner the better. Devices power are less enjoyable if the technology available around is not enough to sustain its full potential.

The Huawei Ascend Mate 2 will be powered by two different processors it's either a 1.6GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 or Huawei's HiSilicon Cortex A9 processor but of course the processor selection will be determined on a market to market basis. If there is one question I have about processors, that would be why are they releasing devices which run on more than one type of processor and then don't get released in the same market or why different markets have to have another configuration? Why?

 Other specs would be  2GB of RAM, Adreno 306 GPU. Default memory is at 16GB but can be expanded up to another 32GB. 13MP f/2.0 rear camera and 5MP f/2.4 front one. On top of the Android 4.3 Jellybean OS, the Ascend Mate 2 also runs Huawei's Emaotion 2.0 UI interface.

As for its battery Huawei put in a non-removable 4,050mAh battery underneath it which the company claims users can "enjoy a half-day web browsing in a single charge" or "up to 100 hours of music listening". Another thing is the Mate 2 4G has a 1280x720p display, although it is not 1080p full HD it should be clear enough to displaying images and videos on its massive screen and that resolution contributes to its battery's long lasting life. And yes it can charge other devices too, first of its kind that I heard of. Unfortunately Huawei has not announced the pricing and release date for the Ascend Mate 2 4G.
