Oh God, Huawei's Monster 6.1 Inch Phablet Spotted In the Wild

By Eric Limer on at

If you thought the Galaxy Note II was pushing the envelope on size, you've got another thing coming. A executive from Huawei has been caught on camera showing off the company's upcoming 6.1-inch 1080p Ascend Mate, a truly mammoth phablet.

Expected to be officially unveiled at this year's CES, the Ascend Mate is rumoured to have a 1.8GHz HiSilicon K3V3 quad-core chip and a 4,000mAh battery to power its ludicrous 6.1-inch, 361ppi screen. Huawei's Richard Yu was showing off the device at a Huawei store in Guangzhou, and the video shows just how big the thing is, a full .6 inches larger than the Galaxy Note II and creeping up on the 7-inch tablet form factor. Where will this hugification finally end? Apparently not at half a foot. [Engadget]
