Huawei Ascend Mate 2 pictured by TENAA in China

06 December, 2013

Huawei Ascend Mate 2 has recently leaked revealing design and pretty detailed specifications. We already know the phablet will run on HiSilicon's latest Kirin910 chipset with a 1.6GHz quad-core Cortex-A9 processor, Mali-450 GPU and 2GB of RAM.

Naturally the Ascend Mate 2 will launch in China first. There it will be available in two models - MT2-C00 version (CDMA and GSM) for China Telecom and MT2-U071 (WCDMA and GSM) for China Unicom.

There is some controversy on the specs though. According to previous leaks via benchmark scores and even some live pictures, the Ascend Mate 2 is supposed to pack a 6.1" 1080p IPS display. The Chinese TENAA certification authority has it listed with a 720p display. We hope they are wrong, otherwise the Mate 2 will bring almost nothing new over its Mate predecessor.

The Ascend Mate 2 is not the only Huawei smartphone to leak today. A leaked invitation shows Huawei will unveil its first true octa-core smartphone - Honor 4 - on December 16. Just like the Mate 2, the Honor 4 is a phablet, only it has a 5.5" 720 display. It will supposedly run on MT6592 chipset with eight Cortex-A7 cores and Mali-450 graphics.

We guess both devices will go official before the end of December and the rumored Ascend P6S might join them too.
